This is the first film that interviews the Mothers Of Fukushima, nuclear power experts and trade unionists who are fighting for justice and the protection of the children and the people of Japan and the world. The residents and citizens were forced to buy their own geiger counters and radiation dosimeters in order to test their communities to find out if they were in danger. The government said contaminated soil in children's school grounds was safe and then when the people found out it was contaminated and removed the top soil, the government and TEPCO refused to remove it from the school grounds.

The Nightmare At Pfizer - Injured Biotech Worker Becky McClain Speaks at 2009 SF Workers Memorial Day

The "Nightmare at Pfizer "- Injured Bio-Tech Worker Becky McClain Speaks at 2009 April 28, 2009 SF Workers Memorial Day Pfizer Biotech Stem Cell Researcher Becky McClain Reports On Health And Safety Dangers In The Biotech Industry Injured Pfizer Molecular Biologist Becky McClain was a health and safety officer at the drug company Pfizer. She was concerned about the dangers of stem cell research and lack of proper oversight and health and safety protection. She brought these concerns to OSHA and was told that they could not defend her and other biotech workers. She was also infected as a result of these unsafe health and safety practices and is fighting to make the public aware of the dangers of this new unregulated industry. The current developing pandemic in Mexico in Mexico of a swine flu is a clear example of the potential public and human cost of unregulated and uncontrolled development of genetic engineering without proper health and safety. Although there is no evidence at present that this flu was the result of genetic engineering this could have come from genetic engineering. Becky McClain, worked at the Pfizer laboratory in Connecticut and was working on stem cell research when she incurred biological exposures while on the job. She has been fighting since that time to obtain the right to her exposure records which are necessary for healthcare and compensation for her injuries. The company still refuses to release these records. The federal lack of protection of the introduction of new technology in the workplace is a growing danger not only to those technology workers but the public at large. In light of the new emerging swine flu epidemic in Mexico, biotech workers rights and public health and safety are the first line of defense against accidental, negligent or intentional release of infectious agents that could cause new emerging disease. Becky also talk about the case of biotech worker Dr. Jeannette Adu-Bobie and how she had to fight for healthcare after being infected at her laboratory in New Zealand.

Solidarity Has No Borders:
The Journey Of The Neptune Jade

The Documentary In 1995, Liverpool T&G dockers went on strike to protest their firing for not crossing a picket line. Their strike was a challenge to the privatization of the ports by Thatcher and the union leadership of the Transport and General Workers Union which refused to support their strike action citing the anti-labor laws. This documentary is about the support action against the ship Neptune Jade in Oakland, California in 1997 which was carrying cargo from the struck port. Members of ILWU Local 10 and ILWU Local 34 refused to cross the picket line in solidarity with the striking Liverpool dockworkers. The picket continued in Vancouver, British Columbia where the ship was also not unloaded. It finally left for Kobe, Japan and the Japanese dock workers also refused to unload the cargo.
