Dear supporter, welcome to Greenpeace's latest newsletter 中 文 版 本
 
Dear supporter:
Take a moment to recall the nuclear disaster in Fukushima that occurred this time last year, as a result of an earthquake off the coast of Japan. Not only did the tragedy take countless lives, it also left behind a painful scar in the hearts of local residents that will take many years more to heal.
This coming March, Greenpeace is presenting the Fukushima Anniversary Exhibition in collaboration with six prominent local and overseas artists. The artistic works of this exhibition recall haunting memories and fragmented images of the calamity – and that for the sake of future generations must never be forgotten.
On certain days within the exhibition period documentaries featuring footage of Japanese rallies against nuclear energy will be shown at the venue. Greenpeace has also invited the Fukushima family of Nishikata to come to Hong Kong to tell their story as refugees who witnessed first-hand the entire nuclear disaster.
From these images ask yourself; can nuclear really be the only way forward for Hong Kong’s future energy development?
Greenpeace sincerely invites you to the:
 
SHADOWLAND: Fukushima Anniversary Exhibition

Whose hand will you take when you flee the danger zone?
Only in adversity do we see true feelings. If a nuclear disaster similar to that in Fukushima were to happen in Hong Kong, whom would you be leaving behind? Greenpeace is introducing a very special Valentine’s Card for you. We hope that our planet will no longer rely on nuclear energy and that we never have to be separated from our loved ones due to another nuclear disaster.
