Beyond Nuclear to co-present "Into Eternity" in Livonia, MI on 3/11 to commemorate Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe

On Sunday, March 11, 2012, the first anniversary of the beginning of the still ongoing Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe, Beyond Nuclear is joining with BetterWorld Happenings to co-present the film "Into Eternity" about the proposed Finnish high-level radioactive waste repository (see the trailer, above). The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Unity Church of Livonia, Michigan. Keith Gunter, Promoter and Producer of BetterWorld Happenings, and a Beyond Nuclear Launch Partner, has organized the event. Beyond Nuclear's Kevin Kamps will speak at the screening. A media release has gone out, as well as a flyer. 

Kevin will discuss the risks of such reactors in the vicinity as Fermi 2, the proposed Fermi 3, as well as Davis-Besse. In addition, he'll discuss the final recommendations of President Obama's and Energy Secretary Chu's "Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future," and other radioactive waste risks to the Great Lakes, such as proposed "low," "intermediate," and high-level radioactive waste dumps targeted at the Canadian shorelines of Ontario on Lake Superior and Lake Huron.

Nukewatch of Wisconsin just showed "Into Eternity" in Duluth, MN on Feb. 20th. Nuclear Energy Information Service is planning to show it on March 22nd in Chicago (see their press release and "Know Nukes" film series schedule). And yet another screening is in the works for the Blue Water region of Michigan near Port Huron in mid-March, again with Kevin Kamps as a speaker.
