The documentary, “Get Up, Stand Up”, is, in some ways, an answer to many of the myths surrounding nuclear power projects the world over. Though this film is set particularly in the backdrop of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project and the people’s struggle against it, it raises almost all of the questions regarding the safety of nuclear plants, development and its imposition on a people, alternate sources of energy and their contribution to total energy needs, the lack of scientific know-how in disposing nuclear waste, the dependence on foreign resources in the running of a nuclear power plant anywhere in Third World countries, and the ups and downs of the People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy (PMANE), in Kudankulam. In the aftermath of the Fukushima accident and its unprecedented and innumerable fallouts, the people all over the world, even those in France, where they depend so much on nuclear power for electricity, will under no circumstances believe nuclear energy is safe. As is shown in this documentary, even the former president of India, A. P. J. Abdul Kalaam, failed miserably in convincing the ordinary people of Kudankulam of the plant’s safety. The mainstream media, for all the unsaid reasons, have set their priorities in sidelining the people’s struggle in Kudankulam; to uphold the rights of these fishworkers’ to stand up for their rights, to a safe and clean living, is not countersigned by the popular media. hence it seems all the more important that the message of this documentary film reaches far and wide into the minds of as many people as possible within India and outside. After the film received much acclaim in Kerala, especially after the screening at the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala, 2012, at various university campuses and other public screenings, we started an anti-nuclear signature campaign by the audience; the result was amazing, as people came forward to contribute their signatures in large numbers. This campaign could be carried forward with your help, too.
