In May 2011, Independent Australia was the first Australian news outlet to publish the truth that Fukushima had suffered a full nuclear meltdown — the tragic fallout from which continues to thIs very day. In that 2011 piece, IA interviewed physician and tireless anti-nuclear campaigner Dr Helen Caldicott. Here, Dr Caldicott explains why supporting IA is "imperative".
INDEPENDENT AUSTRALIA online is one of the few outlets where you can actually obtain the truth about politics, both within Australia and globally.
There are so few outlets now that will give us this without bias — including, I'm afraid, even the ABC and SBS.
So, we must support Independent Australia online; it's absolutely imperative for our well-being and for our democracy

"Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster" describes the meltdown as the careful nurturing of "the myth of safety" http://t.co/B6nf5TBACJ— The Japan Times (@japantimes) March 16, 2015
