If you love this planet you will change the priorities of your life and work every second of every day to save it : Physician and anti-nuclear activist Helen Caldicott speaks out against war

9:00-9:01 Billboard :01-9:06 Headlines 9:06-9:07 One Minute Music Break 9:07-9:20: For the first time since the Gulf War, the Pentagon plans to move a full combat division of U.S. forces to within striking distance of Iraq. Overall 50,000 troops are expected to be sent to the region this month to almost double the size of the U.S. presence in the region. The troops are prepared to go to war by mid-February. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has said that there is no cause for war against Iraq because Baghdad is co-operating with the weapons inspectors. As the Pentagon prepares for another war, we re going to spend the hour with physician, activist and writer Helen Caldicott. Dr. Caldicott has become world famous for her anti-nuclear activism. As she likes to say, in the late 1970s, she started talking about the dangers of nuclear war as a physician. She said most Americans responded, it s better to be dead, than red. So she started talking about the actual medical effects of nuclear war. She helped revive the Physicians for Social Responsibility. She was later nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Caldicott's views on the nuclear industry were featured in the 1982 film If You Love This Planet, which was produced by the National Film Board of Canada. Although it won an Academy Award, the U.S. Department of Justice declared the film political propaganda and monitored its distribution. Her latest book is The New Nuclear Danger: George Bush s Military Industrial Complex . She spoke at Smith College on Nov 12, 2002. The speech was recorded by Robbie Leppzer of Turning Tide Productions Tape: Helen Caldicott, writer, activist and pediatrician. She is author of five books, including her latest: The New Nuclear Danger: George Bush s Military Industrial Complex (The New Press in the US; Scribe Publishing in Australia).
