I have wanted to interview Helen Caldicott for two years, ever since I began my deep interest and research on anti-nuclear issues. Her name, image and ideas were part of my childhood. Both of my parents admired and were inspired by her– as they worked hard as activists on issues of nuclear disarmament and nuclear freeze in the 1970s and 1980s.
Fukushima brought Helen Caldicott to New York recently. She spoke at the October 1, CAN anti-nuke rally, and again a week later at #Occupy #Wall Street. During her visit, I was fortunate to meet with Helen and video our talk.
Helen Caldicott is a medical doctor, mother of three, and grandmother of seven. She is a renowned author, founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and crusader for the safety of our planet.
Please listen to her moving and meaningful words. She is a brilliant environmental advocate and courageous leader of the anti-nuclear movement.
I feel grateful and honored to have spent this time with her.
Thank you, Helen.
