Date posted 17 September 2012

Child Rights International Network have posted a mail shot to about 4000 charities relevant to children across the world. Here is a quote from this weeks CRINmail

 

Meanwhile in Japan, a petition is seeking to relocate children still living in the area affected by the Fukushima nuclear disaster, amid ongoing evidence that the area is still dangerously contaminated. The Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial (FCET) is urging the government to support the collective evacuation of the 260,000 children still remaining in the area, and transfer them to a non-contaminated area. To substantiate the petition, the FCET points out that the first case of paediatric thyroid cancer was discovered this month – normally, the possibility of a child developing this cancer is around one in a million. Also, a thyroid gland examination found that 43 per cent of the children have worryingly abnormal thyroid growth. To sign or read more about the petition, follow the link.
