    www.ucanews.com
  • 2. A renowned Japanese documentary photographer illustrated the danger of nuclear power during a lecture organized by the Catholic Church in Seoul yesterday.
  • 3. Takashi Morizumi, who has taken many pictures at nuclear test sites and victims of radiation exposure, gave the lecture at Myeongdong Cathedral.
  • 4. He was invited by the bishops’ Committee for the Environment which is campaigning against nuclear power especially, since the Fukushima power plant disaster in Japan in March.
  • 5. The lecture aimed to “share the danger of radioactivity from a nuclear plant and discuss the possibility of alternative energy sources,” Bishop Matthias RiIong-hoon, president of the committee said.
  • 6. “Half of eastern Fukushima prefecture in Japan was contaminated by radioactivity after the Fukushima accident. It is causing serious sea pollution and there is a possibility of another explosion,” Morizumi told the gathering.
  • 7. “Koreans and Japanese both have painful memories of nuclear catastrophe,” he said.
  • 8. Many Korean residents in Japan were killed by the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II,” he noted.
  • 9. Since then, “second and third generations have suffered from the after-effects of the bombings. They are witnesses to the reason why nuclear weapons should disappear,” he added.
