Warm greetings of peace!
On January 10, 2015, Saturday (9:00am to 5:00pm), we are holding the 2015 Asian No Nukes Conference on Environment, Justice, and Peace at STI College Caloocan City, Philippines. This conference aims to take up nuclear issues related to Environment, Justice and Peace (such as global capitalism, prevention of wars and man-made disasters, advocating justice to victims of nuclear bombings, testing and research, nuclear weapons abolition, updates from Fukushima and other areas impacted by the presence of nuclear power facilities in their communities). It also aims to present the peoples initiatives and movements focused on the issues mentioned above. We expect the participation of at least 300 participants coming from different sectors (students, teachers, parents, activists, workers, urban poor and interest groups, leaders from socio-civic and church organizations) in the Philippines and Japan.
In this regard, we would like to extend invitation for you and your network/members/friends to participate in the conference.
Organizers of the conference are: Abakadang Kayumanggi Development Foundation (AKCDF), MAPALAD KA (Mamamayan ng Pamayanan Laban sa Digmaan, Karahasan, at Kahirapan), Nuclear-Free Pilipinas, Rotary Club of Malabon Highlands, STI College of Caloocan City, STI College Caloocan Student Council and AKAY Japan.
