Asia Pacific Greens Statement on Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disasters

On the afternoon of March 11, 2011 a major earthquake occurred in North-East Japan, destroying and severely damaging many cities and towns on the Pacific Coast.

Currently more than several tens of thousands of people are dead or unaccounted for.

This catastrophe caused a cut off-off of cooling water into several reactors of nuclear power plants located in Fukushima. As a result of reduced water, the nuclear reactors may face a melt-down. If this occurs, it could be the worst case of nuclear accidents all over the world.

日本紀錄片女導演 期待非核亞太

日本紀錄片女導演 期待非核亞太

鐮仲瞳是日本反核運動紀錄片的導演。拍攝紀錄片的目的是希望破解核電可以解決氣候變遷的迷思。不過她向新唐人記者表示,紀錄片在北京放映結束的第二天,她的部落格就被封掉了。

這是日本著名紀錄片導演鐮仲瞳製作的日本反核廢料運動紀錄片。希望啟發人們對核電進行反思,作出正確的抉擇。

長期從事紀錄日本反核運動的紀錄片導演鐮仲瞳,為參加4月30日至5月2日在天母會議中心舉辦的「第二屆亞太綠人大會」來到台灣,她表示,公開的資訊是正確判斷的重要依據。

日本紀錄片導演鐮仲瞳:「(我的影片)提供了正反兩面的資訊,有一個全貌,才能讓人有選擇,不能只說益處而不提弊處,應該客觀,然後你來選擇。」

日本靜岡縣議員松谷清(matusyakiyoshi)也長期從事日本反核運動,這次以「綠之未來」成員的身份來台。他從呼籲反核到走向脫核,為的是創造「對未來負責」及「誠信」的社會。
