August 28 – Townsville, Queensland – Facing the Fallout with former PM Mr Naoto Kan.
August 29 – Melbourne – Dinner – guest speaker Mr Naoto Kan, former Prime Minister of Japan www.acfonline.org.au/naotokan
The Australian Conservation Foundation and the Medical Association for the Prevention of War invite you to a very special evening with Mr Naoto Kan.
Mr Kan was Prime Minister of Japan when the Fukushima nuclear reactor crisis began in March 2011. He was forced to consider a full scale evacuation of Tokyo in response to the unfolding emergency and subsequently made the decision to shut down all of Japan’s nuclear reactors.
Since the meltdown Mr Kan has withdrawn his previous support for nuclear power and now strongly supports an energy future that is renewable, not radioactive.
In October 2011 it was formally confirmed that Australian uranium was fuelling the failed Fukushima reactor complex at the time of the accident.
We are pleased to have the unique opportunity to welcome Mr Kan in Melbourne for a just a few hours at the very end of his Australian tour.
Please join us to hear Mr Kan speak on his experience of the Fukushima crisis and reflections on subsequent energy policy. There will be the opportunity for mingling and discussion surrounded by the beautiful Flagstaff Gardens.
Where: City of Melbourne Bowls Club Lounge, Flagstaff Gardens, Dudley St, West Melbourne
When: Friday 29th August, 7pm-9.30pm. Mr Kan will speak at 8pm.
Cost: $60 per head includes finger food buffet. Drinks at bar prices.
All funds raised will be dedicated towards funding Mr Kan’s Australian speaking tour.
RSVP by Wednesday 27th August at www.acfonline.org.au/naotokan

September 9 – Adelaide – Renewable Energy Forum http://www.renewablegeneration.org.au/#attend_a_forum
9th September, 7pm to 9pm
Allan Scott Auditorium, The Hawke Centre, UniSA City West Campus.
On the ninth of September The Australian Youth Climate Coalition is holding a Renewable Energy forum with Nick Xenophon and we are inviting a whole lot of community groups, charities and businesses to let him know that we all believe in the importance of government support for investing in renewable energy. Xenophon’s vote for renewables will be very important in the Senate, as I’m sure you know, so the idea is to get him to discuss his views on renewable energy and hold him accountable for whatever he says.
To RSVP ( just so we can keep track of numbers) the link is below:

However, we’re just very keen to support Frontline Films David Bradbury is an Australian film-maker who has earned an international reputation as a film maker willing to go to extraordinary lengths for a cause, exposing political oppression and environmental vandalism.
He is currently producing a very up to date film on the situation of nuclear power – globally. Bradbury’s Frontline Films nevertheless runs on the proverbiial shoe string – and with little encouragement from the mainstream media.
We believe that Frontline Film’s newest documentary will be a remarkable and eye-opening film. But David Bradbury needs funds to get these filmed events and interviews edited, and onto DVD and film. And then – to get this – the most up to date film about the global nuclear scene to the 2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro 28. June – 14. July 2012.
So – we’re calling for donations. The Frontline Film Foundation is a registered charity and has tax deductible status. All you need is these banking details:
