August 9 | Nuclear Nation screening | Sydney

On Friday August 9 a special screening of the film Nuclear Nation will be held at the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington, Sydney. 
 

Nuclear Nation is a documentary about the exile of Futaba’s residents, the region housing the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Since the 1960s, Futaba had been promised prosperity with tax breaks and major subsidies to compensate for the presence of the power plant. The town’s people have now lost their homeland. Through their agonies and frustrations, the film questions the real cost of capitalism and nuclear energy. More info at http://nuclearnation.jp/en/

This screening is a fundraising event for the Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) and all proceeds will support Aboriginal communities on the frontline of nuclear projects to attend the annual ANFA national meeting in October.

This screening is being held on Nagasaki Day- Friday August 9- and is part of a series of events in Sydney to commemorate the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and recognise the environmental and social impacts of the nuclear industry worldwide.
