The day marks three months after Fukushima nuclear disaster triggered by the earthquake and tsunami. The power plants are still spewing radioactive materials. No one wants such dirty electricity harmful to human and nature.
Join us on June 11th with million-people action throughout the world and let our voices heard.
People began raising their voices against nuclear energy and weapons throughout Japan and the world beyond. Germany and Switzerland responded with the closure of all its nuclear power plants, then in Japan, following two major protests in April 10 and May 7, the government released an official request for shutting down Hamaoka nuclear plant – one of the oldest and most thought to be dangerous.
Nevertheless, Japanese government and TEPCO are confining our demands for information disclosure, continuously ignoring our anxiety, and leaving the matters of evacuation and compensation unsettled. In the midst of the nuclear crisis throughout the Eastern Japan, government raised the annual allowance of radiation dosage limit from 1 mSv to 20 mSv/year. This also applies to all children in high-radioactive zones.
In addition, Japanese government allied with the U.S. government promotes further nuclear renaissance (exploitation) through nuclear weapons, uranium mining, and reactors. The burden of nuclear accidents and radioactive waste management will always be put on shoulders of the least powerful — marginalized farmers, fishers, temp workers (freeters), day labors and homeless folks, military and base workers, aborigines/indigenous, Zainichi, Buraku-min, foreigners, immigrants and children. Let us raise voices from outside Japan to imagine and demand a better world free of nuclear power.
