IndependentWHO Organizes "Scientific and Citizen Forum on Radioprotection: from Chernobyl to Fukushima" in Geneva, Switzerland, 12 May 2012

The real health consequences of Chernobyl, and of all nuclear activities, have been covered up. The World Health Organization, the international health authority, is subordinate to the nuclear lobby and has abdicated all responsibility in matters of radiation and health.

With the Fukushima catastrophe, it is ever more urgent for citizens and independent scientists to assume responsibility together for research and information in this critical area of public health.  The Forum, organized by IndependentWHO in Geneva, will bring together independent scientists, citizens groups and health professionals, from the Chernobyl region, Fukushima and elsewhere in the world, in order to share information and initiate citizen action aimed at ensuring radioprotection for the world’s people.

There will be events on all three days of the forum :

Press Conference, Friday 11 May, 10.00 - 12.00, at Geneva Press Club, basement conference room, "La Pastorale", 106 route de Ferney, Geneva.   The Club has the pleasure of inviting Swiss and foreign journalists and its members on the theme of the Forum, with:
- Paul Roullaud, Co-Founder of IndependentWHO
- Alison Katz, member of People's Health Movement and IndependentWHO
- Wladimir Tchertkoff, author of Crimes de Tchernobyl and member IndependentWHO
-  Kolin Kobayashi, Journalist and Paris Correspondent, Days Japan.  
In principle, open to the public.

The Forum, Saturday 12 May, from 9.00, at the Ecumenical Centre, 150 route de Ferney, Geneva.

A round table discussion between speakers and the public, Sunday morning, 13 May, 9.00 - 12.00, at La Maison des associations, 15 rue des Savoises, Geneva.
