This poster “Nuclear” was created to express the concern on recent news about nuclear waste discovered in Syria, produced under the regime of Bashar al-Assad, which will be scrapped at the Mediterranean Sea. Specifically, approximately 1.300 tons of nuclear radioactive waste, a huge quantity, that is scheduled to be disposed on USS Cape Bay, at the marine area between Greece and Malta.
This poster shows the great environmental consequences that can be caused in case such a procedure takes place. To protect our marine life is essential to preserve our planet, we are obliged to deliver to our children a living planet.
