Two special shows explore the anti-nuclear movement in India and its connections to the export of Australian uranium. In Part One we speak with Achin Vanaik of the Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace, Kumar Sundaram, a prolific organiser and Bhargavi Dilipkumar from People for Social Action. All recordings undertaken while on a learning trip to India, connecting the movements across aspirational nuclear-free borders.

Never mind the issues of safety, economics, radioactive pollution – their big selling point is that the reactors will be kept cool by discharging heat into the oceans. They proudly boast - the ocean is a “heat sink”. But wait a minute – aren’t we supposed to be preventing global warming? Isn’t the heating of the oceans a major factor in heating the planet?
