Fukushima, Never Again

opctj-slide21_Fukushima
The film documents how the nuclear energy program for "peaceful atoms" was brought to Japan under the auspices of the US military occupation. It explores the criminal coverup of the safety dangers of the plant by TEPCO and GE management, which built the plant in Fukushima. Included is an interview with Kei Sugaoka, the GE nuclear plant inspector from the bay area who exposed cover-ups in the safety at the Fukushima plant and was retaliated against by GE.  The film features the voices of the people and workers about the reality of the disaster. It shows what this means not only for the people of Japan but the people of the world as the US government and nuclear industry continue to push for more new plants and government subsidies. This film breaks the information blockade and the cover up by the corporate media in Japan, the US and around the world that seeks to
convince the public that Fukushima is over.  With 11 nuclear plants, 4 of which are the same Mark IV model as the plants at Fukushima, Illinois is ground zero for the nuclear industry in the US.

Discussion: Following the showing there will be a short presentation by David Kraft, Executive Director of NEIS (Nuclear Energy Information Service) and open discussion.

Light refreshments are served.
