The present Japanese government ( the Abe administration ), in their efforts to resume the operation of the nuclear power plants in Japan and to promote their exportation overseas, is trying to “delete” the memories and lessons of Fukushima from their official records.
This is a bit outdated news, but it’s better than not mentioning.
A photojournalist Takashi Morizumi posted a few photos taken in the evacuation zone in Fukushima last month. Click the links below to see them.
An appeal to improve labor condition of the Fukushima Daiichi workers has been posted at Vancouver based Peace Philosophy Centre’s website. To read the letter, please visit their website.
The following statement is from www.chernobyl-day.org.
In the world today, thirty-one countries are using nuclear power to produce energy, which represents more than 400 reactors. How many people do know that a chain of dirty, pollutant and uncontrolled fuels hides behind nuclear plants, which is described as “virtuous cycle” by the nuclear industry?
Each step of this chain generates considerable radioactive pollutions, leads to incessant dangerous transports, exposes the population to extreme risks and produces nuclear waste that stays radioactive and dangerous for millions of years.
Together, let’s prevent the nuclear industry from poisoning our lives and break the nuclear chain!
From Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of April 2013
