Remembering Chernobyl - standing with Fukushima

Video | 13 April, 2011

26 April 2011 is the 25th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear catastrophe -- Chernobyl in the Ukraine. It is also the 6-week anniversary of the still unfolding nuclear disaster of Fukushima, Japan.

A coalition of environmental and anti-nuclear organisations, trade unions, churches and the Ukrainian and Japanese communities will come together to honour and remember those killed, displaced and sickened by both nuclear crises. W...ith the people of Sydney, we will hold a candlelight vigil at the beautiful Sydney Opera House.

This is a chance for the people of Sydney to show their support for those suffering in Japan and the Ukraine, to stand with both communities as they remember their loss and care for their sick and dispossessed.

It is also an opportunity to respectfully remind the world that nuclear is never safe. For the sake of the planet and humanity we must embrace a clean energy future.

Bring a candle or we will have candles available for a small donation.
