PROTEST Japan’s radioactive Pacific dumping!
Japan has started releasing radioactive waste water from the devastating multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power reactors into the Pacific Ocean. The release is opposed by fisherfolk, scientists, neighboring countries, civil society groups and individuals. Protests and actions are happening now (scroll down at link). We will continue to post any updates. Sign this petition if you haven’t already.
The ongoing Fukushima nuclear catastrophe is still contaminating Japan, and the waters and sea life off of its coast, even without this dumping. Further, Civil society groups contend that the dumping is antithetical to the right to human health as outlined in numerous United Nations proclamations and instruments. This dumping will likely continue for years, continuing our unforgivable treatment of our planet’s oceans.
