Welcome to Zi Activism!

The name of "Zi" is taken from the novel by Vassilis Vassilikos, Z, and its classic film adaptation by Constantin Costa-Gavras. The novel and film depict the efforts of a journalist and prosecutor to expose the truth behind a political assassination in fascist Greece. For more information about the origin of Zi and its name please check out FAQ question #1.04.

Please note that the World News section is still experimental. We welcome your feedback and suggestions at info@zi-activism.net.

Zi Anti-War Campaign: Two US Government Whistleblowers Speak on US's Conventional Radiation Weapons
Posted by: Mustard Seed on Thursday, January 23, 2003 - 04:38 AM EST
Anti-War Campaign Doug Rokke, formerly in charge of the US Army's unit that was responsible for cleaning up Depleted Uranium (DU) after the last Gulf War, and Leuren Moret, a whistleblower from Lawrence Livermore's nuclear weapons labs, are coming to Pittsburgh at great risk to tell us what they know.

A film both of them took leading responsibilities for making possible, Martin Meissonnier's "The Invisible War: Depleted Uranium", has been obtained by Z Films directly from France as it is strangely unavailable in the US. The film has been screened in various Pittsburgh neighborhoods but will be screened at Carnegie Mellon with Q&A from Doug Rokke:
Saturday, January 25: 6 pm, McConomy Auditorium
(Carnegie Mellon's University Center - 5000 Forbes Ave - map)
Q&A at 7 pm

Doug Rokke and Leuren Moret will lecture together the next day:
Sunday, January 26: 10 am, Porter Hall 125C US PREMIERE of the European Parliament report on the public health effects of low level radiation (presented by Doug and Leuren)
