Discussion Group: Crises in Japan

The next Bluestocking Institute for Global Peace and Justice discussion group will continue the theme of current global events, with a focus on the recent tragedies in Japan.

From earthquakes and tsunamis to the threat of nuclear meltdown, can anything more assault our Asian neighbour? How have the Japanese people coped with these crises, how has the media portrayed the issues, and what role does Climate Change play in it all?

Date: 5pm, Sunday 10 April 2011

Place: Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge, WA

RSVP: Bluestocking facebook event page

Here are some websites to get the discussion rolling:

New stories about the Japanese earthquake and tsunami

A map of the affected nuclear sites in Japan

A debate over the lessons for US nuclear

A positive spin story on Japan's nuclear problems
