An Anti-nuclear poster protesting against the French decision to continue testing nuclear weapons in the Pacific for a further fifteen years. The word 'No' is bold and clear and placed directly above a nuclear bomb explosion, reflecting the growing anti-nuclear protest movement of the time. At the base of the poster the question '15 more years testing in the Pacific?' is almost obscured by the pattern of palm fronds.
