Nuclear Power, Health and Safety, Labor and Fight in a Court - International Educational Conference
There are hundreds of aging nuclear plants in the US and around the world that are becoming increasingly dangerous. The Fukushima plant in Japan continues to release thousands of tons of radioactive water into the Pacific and a growing epidemic of thyroid cancer of children and people is developing in Japan. At the same time, the Japan’s Abe government is seeking to restart the remaining nuclear plants and also export nuclear plants throughout the world. There are also lawsuits against the manufacturers of nuclear plants and a successful lawsuit against a Korean nuclear plant where a woman got cancer from that plant. The Korean lawsuit’s success is an important step in protecting the communities near nuclear plants not only in Korea but throughout the world. This international education conference will discuss the growing dangers in the nuclear industry, problems facing nuclear whistleblowers and their efforts to protect the workers, public and communities that live around nuclear plants.
