The Safe and Green Campaign is honored to host Chiho Kaneko once again, for a slide show presentation from her recent trip to Fukushima, Japan. She will speak at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 22 in the Parlor of the Center Congregational Church in Brattleboro. The event is free; donations to defray the costs are gratefully accepted.
Chiho spoke with families, workers, and activists, to learn first hand the ongoing impact of the catastrophic nuclear reactor meltdowns that followed the March 11, 2o11 earthquake an tsunami.
This will be Ms. Kaneko’s second presentation in Brattleboro. In March 2012, she gave a moving presentation to an audience of 300 people gathered at the River Garden to commemorate the one year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster. The Commons published her 2012 presentation in full, here.
The event is sponsored by the Safe & Green Campaign, and is being held to honor the memory of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Through our scientific and technological genius, we have made of this world a neighborhood and yet we have not had the ethical commitment to make of it a brotherhood. But somehow, and in some way, we have got to do this. We must all learn to live together as brothers or we will all perish together as fools. We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. –Martin Luther King, Jr., Remaining Awake Through A Great Revolution
