Musical collective Gone Troppo have finally created a presence on Bandcamp, so I’ve updated my old print design from the original CD release of Children of Chornobyl, to now be available as a pdf download in a revised format more suitable for the screen.
The disaster at Chernobyl happened back in April 1986, and the Fukushima incident occurred 25 years later, in March 2011. Once again the true scale of the radiation contamination is being downplayed, official reports are written to deceive and mislead, and the ongoing effects will be buried under a wall of silence that disrespects all those displaced and harmed by the nuclear spill.
We are unfortunately leaving another significant and long lasting destructive legacy to our children – one that will continue to cause grief, pain and severe financial hardships for many years. What have we learned in the 25 years since the Chernobyl disaster?
