1983 was a crisis year, Russia was paranoid about a preëmptive nuclear strike by the West, afraid in the face of claims of a new Western defensive shield called “Star Wars” claimed could knock out any missile launched against the West.

Stanislav Petrov was a civilian officer recruited at an early warning base in Russia, his duty was to watch for any attempt to launch missiles against the Russia by the West.  26 September 1983 the alarms went off, computers indicated multiple missile launches against Russia.

About Makere

A transplanted New Zealand Scots/Maori academic/grandmother/random singer and sometime activist, my life is shaped by a deep conviction of the necessity for active critical engagement in the multi-faceted global and local crises of being and survival of species that confront us in the 21st century, the urgency of re-visioning the meaning of thriving together, and the contribution of Indigenous knowledge systems to a truly sustainable and just global society.
