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/).

Time: Saturday, December 3rd, 2011 10AM to 4PM

Place: San Francisco State University (1600 Holloway Ave, San Francisco), Burk Hall 28

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!
