The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

People Against Wyfa B (PAWB) meet to acknowledge Japan’s continuing Fukushima nuclear tragedy

PAWB 11th March 2018, Members and supporters of PAWB will meet near the Menai bridge on the Ynys
Môn side between 8.00 and 9.00 am on Monday, March 12 to note that seven
years have passed since the explosions and meltdowns at three nuclear
reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi station.
The crisis there continues despite all efforts by the Japanese Government to mislead people that the
situation is better. 300 tonnes of radioactive water still flows through
the site every day in to the Pacific Ocean, and much more radioactive water
is being stored in hundreds of tanks on the site.
The Japanese Government
also wants to pour this water in to the Pacific Ocean. Following recent
research by an international team of scientists, evidence has been found of
the presence of the radioactive elements, uranium, caesium and technetium
in the environment in the area around the Fukushima Daiichi station. The
research was published in February in ‘Environmental Science and
Technology’.
At the same time, the Japanese Government are pressurising
people who had to leave their homes following the nuclear disaster to
return there, maintaining that the area has been cleaned up.
PAWB supports the campaign of our friends in Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth Japan
who are putting pressure on their government not to invest huge amounts of
public money in Hitachi’s irresponsible plans to export the dangerous,
outdated and extortionately expensive Advanced Boling Water Reactor to
Wylfa.
We also appreciate the efforts of the ex-Prime Minister of Japan,
Naoto Kan and his party to halt restarting nuclear reactors there, and to
prevent the export of Hitachi and Toshiba nuclear technology to other
countries. The Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan will be presenting
the Nuclear Zero Bill to the Japanese parliament this week, and we wish
them success in their battle to keep nuclear reactors shut and to halt
export of nuclear technology.   http://stop-wylfa.org/wp/
