Helen Caldicott spoke in Berkeley on 4/10/1997. The title of the talk was TRITIUM AND CONSEQUENCES...
She drew a huge round of applause when she briefly spoke to the trouble at Pacifica. However that section was cut out when the program aired on KPFA when her talk was used as a premium during the most recent KPFA fundraiser in May, 1997. (HEAR THE EXCISED SECTION)
Helen Caldicott speaks about the discovery of radioactive Tritium at the site of the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley. She refers to the fact that it is hard to get the word out since two of the three networks are owned by the nuclear industry and the third by Disney. She also mentions how these networks have exercised censorship and how her appearance on the Today Show was halted. She goes on to say:
"So we are in bad trouble. That's why KPFA is so incredibly important. You got to read this .... (holds up clipping about Pacifica - applause) I think KPFA and Pacifica are in trouble and you better save it. (applause) I am on Pacifica. I have my own program in New York every Monday night. I think it is pretty good - call-in and stuff. And it was going to go national and it hasn't and I don't know why. So anyway, back to Tritium.."
That whole section was edited out by KPFA when the program was used as a fund raiser at the most recent marathon. The edited version goes directly from "So we are in bad trouble" to "So anyway, back to Tritium."
