Manhattan Collage Sponsors Discussion with Hiroshima and Nagasaki Survivors on December 8th

Here is a forum available to the general public related to nuclear energy and nuclear war. Who better to discuss the topics than survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? It sounds like a great event. With Indian Point just a few miles north of us and the discussion going on related to the nuclear power plants future, it's definitely a topic that needs discussion and research. I am sure I am not the only one who has seen former NYC Mayor Koch on TV advocating increased production at the Indian Point nuclear power plant.



From Hiroshima to Fukushima:
Building a World Beyond Nuclear

Hear the testimony of Hibakusha— survivors of the atomic bombs
that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in the
summer of 1945. Survivors will discuss the impact of the bombing
on their lives, and their commitment to peace, forgiveness and
reconciliation. They will also discuss the impact of the Fukushima
Dachii nuclear disaster on the people of Japan.

"Defiantly" is not what you mean. "Definitely" is. There's a huge difference. Get a tutor!
