IndependentWHO is organising a « Scientific and Citizen Forum on Radioprotection : from Chernobyl to Fukushima » on May 12th 2012 in Geneva.
Why organize a scientific and citizen Forum?
The real health consequences of Chernobyl have been covered up. And a repeat cover up of the health consequences of Fukushima is well underway.
Subordinate since 1959 to the International Atomic Energy Agency – part of whose mandate is the promotion of peacefull use of the atom - the World Health Organization has fully participed in the cover up.
The " clean bill of health " that the WHO provides to all nuclear activities must be denounced and civil society must take matters into its own hands.
IndependentWHO has decided, therefore, to invite independent scientists, free or all conflict of interest, to participate in a Scientific and Citizen Forum so that serious, reliable information can be provided be to the public on radiocontamination and radioprotection.
The Forum will allow citizens, politicians, journalists, health professionals and Hippocratic Vigils to share information and experience and think about what they can do together to protect populations from radioactive pollution.
