sign-thisPETITION Support Mari Takenouchi and Radiation Protection

Mari is facing charges stemming from speaking out on radiation in Japan and advocacy for families relocating children out of the areas contaminated by radioactivity from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactor site, operated by TEPCO. Radioactivity continues to leave that site. It is well established that while lower levels of exposure to radioactivity lowers risk, the greatest hazard from radiation comes when children are exposed, raising the risk of cancer manifold over their entire lives.

The group ETHOS in Japan supports the decision by some to stay and live in contaminated areas. Sadly, some of these families feel they have no choice due to economics and other factors. Certainly young children have no choice. ETHOS advocates monitoring radioactivity, but well established science supports Mari’s views that there is no safe dose of radiation and that children need to be protected. We support open discussion, access to information and free choice. We ask the Prosecutor to agree that writing and speaking about these issues are not a crime.

Please Stand With Mari as she stands for precaution, protection and the rights of children to a healthy future.  https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Office_of_the_Prosecutor_Iwaki_Branch_Fukushima_Japan_Support_Mari_Takenouchi_and_Radiation_Protection/?copy

    • this is a belated thank you for your comment, Amy
      ene news is doing an amazing job. I am relying on it more and more, as the mainstream news really avoids the “difficult” stuff

  2. some interesting comments and perspectives..
    first i would like to say thatmore than 60 percent of the worlds energy is used by the corporations to support a very energy consumptive society. With mass unemployment because of the need for energy hungry machinery that has replaced skilled workers and there products with short lasting plastic products. Windows no longer last hundreds of years as plastic becomes brittle after a few decades as an example.

    The point i am getting at is we could reduce the need for this large scale electricity by cutting the use by the corporations and using alternative technologies like the aluminium fuel cell and 12 volt systems instead of the higher voltage we use now.

    Although the idea of a small amount of nuclear fuel going far, there is still the waste to consider. After some of my own investigations i found that melting these nuclear waste products causes NO2 pollution to name but one pollutant caused by these processes. The UK is a case in point with the highest deaths from NO2 in Europe, which i maintain is from Sellafield and La Hague fuel reprocessing and decommissioning of nuclear facilities in recent years. As you fairly pointed out about transparency in the industry is not improviong and i think it is because of the real huge costs of this technology. Even the Norwegian investors left TEPCO with huge losses and the Dutch investors enquired as to the health issues in Fukushima and were ignored.

    I was going to volunteer for work at Daichi but have since found out the scale of the coverup and that info is on this blog.

    As to thorium, its not looking to good. There is a reactor in norway and it is not proving efficient so far.

    i will stop here and let our statements be seen and assesed by our viewers.
    there might be follow on comments but the nuclear-news crowd is usually silent on issues. So i am not holding my breath :)
    Many thanks for your input.
    peace
