A Presentation and Conversation with Mr. Yasateru Yamada, Japan, and Dr. Jeff Patterson, US

Yasateru Yamada is a co-founder of the Skilled Veterans Corps for Fukushima, a group of Japanese retirees who have proposed to volunteer to do cleanup work to spare younger people exposure to radiation.   After a year of ongoing environmental damage and foot-dragging by the Japanese government, the SVCF has decided to ask the American public and the rest of the world to put pressure on their own government to persuade Japan to permit an international effort to put an end to this disaster.

Dr. Jeff Patterson is a professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, WI and is President-Elect and long time board member of Physicians for Social Responsibility. He has traveled to Chernobyl and has studied the effects of radiation and the nuclear-industrial complex on public health as well as the victims of nuclear weapons and accidents. He will speak on the implications of the Fukushima disaster not only for the workers at the reactor, but for the planet.
