Dr. Helen Caldicott talks for the first time about her March 11-12 Symposium: The Medical and Environmental Consequences of Fukushima – a watershed event for our movement, involving doctors, scientists and researchers from around the world. She explains how she became an anti-nuclear activist while still a teenager, how she founded three of our most important organizations, and offers insights on how to make our activism even more effective. Simply the best!
