Urgent Appeal to the Japanese Government on radiation containment at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant

by ECOLO Japan International (Official Membership Group of APGN/Global Greens)

Although it has been almost 3 months since Fukushima No.1 NPP accident occurred, high level and much amount of radioactive materials still diffuses from the exploded reactors. The Japanese government leaves every decision and work schedules to Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) and do never take any initiative, nobody takes control of the present serious situation in Fukushima No.1 NPP, so the things have been serious and concerning.

A message from Fukushima

To: The Hon Martin Ferguson AM, Member of Parliamant for Resources and Energy, 159 High Street, Preston Vic 3072

Dear Sir,

The calamity at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, following the tragic earthquake and tsunami on March 11, confirms 25 years after Chernobyl that claims of safe nuclear power are false.

Fukushima: It's much worse than you think (Al Jazeera English)

"Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind," Arnold Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president, told Al Jazeera.

Japan's 9.0 earthquake on March 11 caused a massive tsunami that crippled the cooling systems at the Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan. It also led to hydrogen explosions and reactor meltdowns that forced evacuations of those living within a 20km radius of the plant.

No-Nuke Action

Dear Greens,

It'll have been 3 months since one of the biggest earthquake and Tsunami in the human history hit us in Japan, and since then the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has been emitting the radioactivity to all over the world.

Now is the time for us to learn how ridiculous the nuclear power generation is, and for those who want to promote the nuclear development, to give a lecture.

So we call on to everybody in the world to claim that we don't want nuclear power plants any more,  anywhere in the world.

Greens Japan call for expansion of nuclear evacuation area & support for relief workers

More than two weeks have gone since 20-kilometer mandatory evacuation and 30-kilometer voluntary indoor evacuation are issued on March 15th, centered at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The indoor evacuation, that asks residents to stay inside their homes, can not be an effective measure against radiation exposure for many days although it can be so for shorter periods. Anticipating radioactive contamination to spread further, the evacuation order has to extend immediately to 30-kilometer area where voluntary indoor evacuation has been in effect.

Greens Japan urge the shut down of all of the nuclear power plants

Catastrophic failure at Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plants, triggered by 11-Mar-2011 earthquake and tsunami, makes it very clear to the world that nuclear generation is terribly risky business to conduct in seismically active area such as Japan. It is also clear that all nuclear power generations in Japan must be phased out. We have to move, now.

Officials may say the quake was "beyond speculation" but it did hit. What we have to do to cope with such quakes is: stop all nuclear plants.

Global Greens express solidarity with the Japanese people and call for radical change in the world’s energy paradigm

We, the Global Greens, representing more than 80 Green parties around the world, express our solidarity with the Japanese people at this tragic time.  We send deep condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the victims of this terrible tragedy.
