Speakers biography and links to their works（お招きしたスピーカーの紹介）
No Nukes Action invites you to our first educational conference “THE LESSONS OF NUCLEAR POWER AND THE MEDIA” on December 3rd (Sat) at San Francisco State University!
Since the nuclear reactor accident on March 11th, 2011 in Fukushima, Japan, the world became more alert on issues of radioactive contamination due to the accidents. While mainstream media, governments, corporations, and military institutions are working to cover up the harms of nuclear military-industrial-complex, people became media by sharing their skills, knowledge, and wisdom to protect themselves. Our speakers will discuss the history of nukes, industry, resistance, and make global pipelines of resistance against nukes among Japan, Korea, Mongolia, California, and New York. The event will be broadcasted on ustream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/fukushima-nuke-power-media), and will be archived on our conference website (http://nukeinfo.wordpress.com/).
