The danger posed by the nuclear industry is graphically described in a carefully-organised and documented poster exhibition which will be displayed in Hiroshima in August 2012.
Created by The International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW), it covers fifty places all over the world affected by the nuclear industry.
Now released on line, the exhibition opens where the “problems” originate – with the impacts of uranium mining and processing, primarily on Indigenous Peoples territories.
According to its organisers:
“Indigenous people whose homes were turned into nuclear wastelands by uranium mining, down winders of the nuclear weapons tests, the survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the people affected by radioactive fallout from civil and military nuclear accidents and nuclear meltdowns.
“All of these people would all be better off, if the uranium had been left in the ground.”
