This article reports on the failure of the Ground Zero movement to convince the American public to participate in the international protest against nuclear policies. Ground Zero is an organization that coordinated a nationwide week of protest recently in the United States. However, very few people turned up for its rally against nuclear weapons held in Utah. The movement, nonetheless, got resolutions favoring a nuclear freeze by the United States and the Soviet Union.
