In JNU this Sunday, Fukushima Residents to share stories, Teesta Setalvad will chair the meeting

Dear friends,

Residents from Fukushima, along with Japanese civil society activists, would be visiting India this week to share their stories. The life stories – full of struggle and resilience – of more than 100,000 people who continue to live away from their home, while the accident in the crippled reactors is still unfolding, are a testimony to the fact that nuclear disasters are humanely insurmountable, even in countries that are technologically most advanced.

The Fukushima residents will share their stories in India – with students, farmers, normal citizens and the media – in Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai.

We cordially invite you to attend the meetings and invite your friends.
