CSD Nov 19th 2013, Meeting...
CSD Presents  Emilie McGlone & Rachel Clark, of Peace Boat (US)

PEACE BOAT US ~ Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster – Moving Forward to a Sustainable World ~ The TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident of 2011 has shown us all the reality that nuclear power cannot be controlled. More and more people are now calling for a nuclear power free society, and the Japanese government announced in its new energy strategy the policy to aim for zero nuclear power. The action of individual citizens is crucial in order to realize a nuclear power free society - Civil societies of the world need to take concrete, cooperative action to achieve the energy shift and realize this comprehensive vision of a “nuclear power free society.”  As radiation goes beyond borders, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl and Fukushima need to be recognized across the world as tragedies for all humankind.
