You’re Invited: Documentary Screening “Into Eternity” On 7 May

Join us at the LoyarBurok Rakyat Centre this Saturday, 7 May, 2.30 pm – 4.30 pm for the screening of an award-winning documentary.

You read about them in the international news — Chernobyl’s 25th anniversary, Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Plant meltdown.

You read about them in the local news — Malaysia’s first nuclear plant, the Lynas rare earth refinery, and the Bukit Merah rare earth MOU.

You also read about them online — movements such as NUKE Off, and numerous Facebook groups campaigning against nuclear and other high radioactive risk.

Terms and phrases such as “radioactive waste” and “radiation” gained much attention in the first half of 2011.

However, do you really know what radioactive waste is? What are we really campaigning against? Is it true, as activists claim, there is no way of storing this waste safely? Nuclear energy has been commercially fueling many countries since the mid-1950s, so what has been done to the nuclear waste for the last 6 decades?

The award winning documentary Into Eternity explores the world’s first permanent repository being hewn out of solid rock in Finland. This repository consists of a network of underground tunnels that are built to last 100,000 years — as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.

Construction of this repository is currently underway.

Why did the Finnish government construct this repository?

Could this be the answer to Malaysia’s future radioactive waste storage?

Join us as we find out more, through our first screening of Into Eternity.

When: Saturday 7 May 2011, 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm.

Where: LoyarBurok Rakyat Centre

(3-4, 4th Floor, Jalan Bangsar Utama 3, Bangsar Utama, 59000 KL).

    Whether you live in a village or a city
    There is no escape from natural radioactivity
    But when you add more of it to your adversity
    You'll be definitely doomed to a short eternity
