Film Screening/Lecture on Fukushima Tragedy

We are very happy to invite you to a lecture “Lives in the shadow of Fukushima” by Prof. John Clammer on Sunday, 19th, February 2012 from 4 pm on wards at National Gallery of Modern Art , Palace Road Bangalore.

To share a little about the lecture and the speaker/discussants:

Prof. John Clammer, Professor of Sociology at the UN University, Tokyo will speak about life after the Fukushima nuclear disaster as a lived experience throwing open for discussion the questions of nuclear safety and health .

Dr. Corinne Kumar, Founder Director, CIEDS Collective and Secretary General, El taller International,Tunisia as one of the discussant who has worked on peace and nuclear disarmament and human rights nationally and internationally over the last thirty years will initiate a discussion on the politics of nuclearisation, nation state and development.

We also hope to have a voice from the resistance movement against the Koodankulam nuclear power plant.

The lecture will be preceded by a film screening on Fukushima: "Yet we seed", directed by Koike Natsumi. The film includes various interviews of organic farmers in Fukushima, after the accident.

We hope that the lecture will deepen the debate on our choices of science and technology and its implications for humanity.

We look forward to seeing you.

You are welcome to extend the invitation to your friends and all those who you think would be interested in the issue.
