LESSONS FROM THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR ACCIDENT IN JAPAN

Invitation to SEMINAR on Dangers of Nuclear Energy

Lokayat organises SEMINAR  on

LESSONS FROM THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR ACCIDENT IN JAPAN

To reply to the speech by Dr. Anil Kakodkar, former Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, in the Maharashtra Assembly defending Nuclear Energy and the Jaitapur Nuclear Plant, Lokayat is organising a Seminar on the subject in which some of India’s  eminent anti-nuclear scientists  will be speaking.

SPEAKERS:

1. Dr. Surendra Gadekar,  world renowned anti-nuclear scientist.
2. Dr. Vishnu Kamath, Professor, Bangalore University.
3. Neeraj Jain, convenor Lokayat and Electrical Engineer.

The seminar will be followed by a question and answer session. This is important. Dr. Kakodkar did not take  any questions  in the Maharashtra Assembly, or probably no one asked. A few days later,  Dr. Kakodkar  spoke defending nuclear energy in Pune, but he refused to take  any questions, and only after much protests did he take  only three questions, and no more. This is typical of India’s atomic energy establshment  which in the name of National Security refuses to discuss the safety issues associated  with nuclear energy. We invite the supporters of nuclear energy to come and debate their views with us.

Date:   April 16, Saturday
TIme:  6 to 8.30 pm
Venue: Bharat Itihas Sanshodhak Mandal, Near Bharat Natya Mandir, Sadashiv Peth, Pune
