(Statement in English)

March 11, 2016 Join International Day Of Action On Fifth Anniversary of Fukushima Meltdown And Continued Radioactive Contamination

March 11, 2016 is the fifth anniversary of Fukushima and the meltdowns of the nuclear power plant. The lessons of that disaster continue to be ignored. There are over 1100 large tanks filled with radioactive water, which has been used to cool down the destroyed reactors, yet the Japanese Abe government told the Olympic committee that the Fukushima nuclear disaster and dangers were over.

Japanese children and people continue to be subjected to high radioactive levels, and a growing number of thyroid cancers not only in Fukuhsima but also in other prefectures of Japan. The Japanese government has raised the limits of “acceptable” amounts of radiation and has told the people of Japan that it has decontaminated the area around the Fukushima plant, and demanding that the residents return to this highly radioactive area or their subsidies will be ended.

The tens of thousands of mostly contract day workers who have been involved in the cleanup are continue to be contaminated and the government has allowed multi-layers of sub contractors to run a criminal operation with the Yakuza involved in recruiting these workers. TEPCO is now runs by the government. Yet, the Japanese government, instead of taking full responsibility to the community and workers, is cost shifting their responsibility with outsourcing these public jobs in order to cut costs.

At the same time, the government is pushing forward with the reopening of Japan’s nuclear plants despite the debacle at Fukushima. Many of these plants are on faults and even near live volcanoes besides the fact Japan located on the ring of fire with regular large earthquakes. The government knowingly is putting the country at threat with the danger of another meltdown that could destroy the entire country, and that is why even former Prime Ministers Kan and Koizumi are against restarting these nuclear plants.

Since the Fukushima disaster, the government has passed a “Secrecy Law” which puts journalists, investigators and citizens in possible danger for reporting what is going on at Fukushima, and it has arrested anti-nuclear activists for just passing out flyers against the burning of nuclear rubble around the country.

It is also seeking to remove Article 9 of the Japanese constitution, which prohibits offensive war, and would allow nuclear weapons and nuclear weapon development by Japanese corporations expanding the danger of nuclear accidents and nuclear war.

The No Nukes Action Committee (NNA) calls for an international day of action on March 11, 2016 to demand that all the children and families of Fukushima be evacuated with compensation. We call for an end to the export of all nuclear technology by Japanese corporations and for an end to the censorship of information about the growing cancer and radiation caused disease in Japan and around the world.

On March 11, 2016, we stand with the millions of Japanese people who have opposed the restart of nuclear power plants and who are demanding an end to militarization of Japan and Asia. We also oppose the rewriting of Japanese history to cover-up the role of the Japanese Imperial Army in enslaving women in Asia during the 2nd World War. The falsification of history is a key component in pushing for militarization and more nuclear weapons and plants in Japan in preparation for war.

The people of the world must unite, and stands as one to demand that the plants must be shut down and the people of Fukushima must be defended. We call on rallies and speak outs at all Japanese Consulates and Embassies around the world to let Japan and the people of the world know that enough is enough and we cannot afford another Fukushima.

We also urge you to endorse and stand with us on this international day of action, and send your statements to us and also to the Japanese government to let Japan and the people of the world know that the restart of nuclear plants must stop and the children and families must be evacuated from Fukushima.

(Statement in Japanese)

No Nukes Action Committee 声明文
今年、2016年3月11日は福島のメルトダウンが起きてから早、5周年目を迎えます。しかしこの大惨事の教訓は生かされるどころか無視されています。放射性汚染水を貯蔵しているタンクは1,100を超えようとしている中、安倍政権は福島はもう安全だとオリンピック委員会に言っています。

日本の人たち、特に子供達はこの高い放射能汚染に日々、脅かされており、高いレベルの甲状腺癌の発生率は福島だけでなく、周辺の地域にも及んでいます。日本政府は放射線の安全基準度を何倍にも上げ、しかも福島原発周辺は既に除染されて安全だから元住民は家に帰るように促し、さも無ければ補助金は打ち切りだと要求しています。
何万という主に下請け業者に雇われている除染労働者が汚染されながら働いている中、TEPCOを監視下に置いている政府は社会や労働者に対して責任ある行動をとるべき所を、経費削減を理由に何層もの下請け業者がヤクザなどを使って日雇い労働者を駆り集めて労働者を危険な状況にしているのを黙認しています。
それと同時に政府は福島の惨事にも関わらず、国内の他の原発を再稼働し出しています。これらの日本の原発の多くは断層の上、あるいは活火山の近くに有り, しかも日本の国自体が環太平洋火山帯に有って、常に地震が起きているのが日本です。政府は十分それを承知の上で日本を次のメルトダウンが起きかねない状態にしていますが、管や小泉前首相ですらこの再稼働に反対しているのです。
福島大惨事の後、政府は秘密保護法を国会で通過させました。これは福島などの状態をリポートするジャーナリストや市民を逮捕可能な状況にし、又、既に汚染物焼却に反対する為にビラを巻いていた人達を逮捕までしています。又、政府は戦争放棄をうたっている憲法9条を取り除こうとし、これにより、日本の企業による核兵器の開発を可能にし、核による新たな惨事、そして核戦争への道へとつき進もうとしています。
No Nukes Action Committee (NNA) はこの 3 月 11 日をインターナショナルアクションデー (
International day of action) とし、先ず、福島の全ての子供、家族を避難させ、又、日本企業による原発/原子力技術の輸出の廃止、そして放射能による癌や、あらゆる病気などの体内への影響の情報を細かく市民へ提供する事を要求します。
この3月11日、私たちは何百万もの再稼働反対し、軍事化に反対する日本の人達と共にこれらに 反対します。また、戦時中の日本軍による慰安婦問題の歴史書き変えなど、これらは日本が軍事化や原子炉の再稼働、また核兵器保持への道への第一歩と確認しています。
今、世界中の人々が一緒になって、全ての原発の廃炉と福島の人達の安全保護を要求しなければいけません。その為に、私たちは世界の日本領事館、大使館において、それぞれの国の人達が、もう福島の二の舞は踏ませないと声を大にする為に同時デモ(ラリー)をする事を呼びかけます。そして皆さんに、是非この声明文と国際行動への賛同をお願い致します。
又、それと同時に、日本だけでなく世界の人達に再稼働阻止と福島の子供や家族の避難が必要な事を知らせる為、皆さんの抗議文を日本政府へ送り、そのコピーを私たち、下記のNo Nukes Action Committee へも送って頂きたいと思います。

    One of the most dedicated activist groups in the world, right here. Best wishes to the NNA Hardcore Group and the NNA for a tremendous turnout and effective dissemination of the Group’s message against the reactivation of nuclear power plants in Japan, and for the shutdown of all nuclear power plants, and the elimination of nuclear weapons, all around the world. Fiat Lux.

    • Jason N. Kamalie says:

      Especially today — the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster — the hopes, messages, and prayers of those harmed by that terrible event find their way through the voices of the NNA. Thanks for your tremendous work toward the elimination of nuclear power plants, and their inherent dangers, all around the world.
