THERE WILL BE NO NUCLEAR POWER STATIONS IN AUSTRALIA FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE

IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE 'FORSEEABLE FUTURE' IN POLITICAL SPEAK MEANS UNTIL THE ELECTION!

 

If you will read the email above you will see that we were justified in believing that the possibility of nuclear contamination belonged to a past nightmare. This may not now be so. Scroll down and read

Elena as a child

Elena Filatova has grown up to be a beautiful and courageous woman with experience behind her and a mission before her to tell the story of a distaster that much of the world prefers to forget.

I have been privileged in being permitted by Elena (who lives in Kiev) to post from her web page to help convey in a small way the horrors of nuclear contamination.
