Come join the “Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants” Rally!

Affected by the earthquake on 11th March, the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant of TEPCO is suffering meltdown, the worst possible situation, in its reactors number 1 to3.
 This has become an unparalleled disaster, where high level radioactive materials have been released, following hydrogen explosions and the damages to the reactor buildings, into sea water, air and soil, contaminating the environment.

 Even two months after the earthquake, the reactors show no sign of coming back to control and the situation continues to be extremely unstable. It is feared that there would be immeasurable effects on the health and lives of not only the local residents and the workers at the power plant but also the future children yet to be born.

 We have always been aware that humans cannot live with nuclear. We are deeply regretting that even though we knew this fact, our protesting voices and actions against nuclear energy have been far too weak.

 We are determined to take actions for a “peaceful and sustainable society”, reconsidering our lifestyles that exploit nature and waste limitless energy, and focusing on natural energy. For that purpose, we set the following goals:
1. Cancellation of construction plans for new nuclear power plants
2. Planned termination of existing nuclear power plants, including the Hamaoka nuclear power plant.
3. Abolition of “Monju” and nuclear reprocessing plants which use plutonium, the most dangerous radioactive material.
We will achieve these goals in order to save our own lives, and fulfill our responsibilities to the future children.

We will hold the “Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants” Rally as follows. Please join with your friends and families.

Date: September 19th, 2011, Starting at 13:00

English petition form(pdf)
■About the Petition Form■

In Japan, a personally signed petition is still more forceful than an Internet-based signature. Therefore, please print out the English petition form (pdf file) and send it to us by postal mail.

Here are some instructions:

Citizens’ Committee for the 10 Million People’s Petition to say Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants
c/o Gensuikin, 1F 3-2-11 Kanda Surugadai, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 101-0062, JAPAN

4. The final deadline of this petition is May 31, 2012.

  2. I have an idea which might be helpful.

    In light of the clearly expressed view of a majority of the people to move away from the use of nuclear power, I believe a social network driven smart grid (SNDSG) — employing large scale, coordinated actions by the general population for the management of peak electricity loads — could be relatively quickly and easily put into effect in Japan this summer, thereby offsetting spikes in energy use and the rationale, at least, for more nuclear restarts.

    As I see it, a SNDSG would call upon volunteers en masse, several times per month — while the highest demand for power is occurring — to simultaneously turn off unnecessary lighting and defer the use of unneeded appliances. Depending on weather and other factors, these events could average around two and a half to four hours at a time.

    If a coalition of environmental groups active in Japan were to get behind this SNDSG concept, I feel that a beleaguered populace would embrace it.

    I am a longtime energy conservation/renewable energy advocate living in the United States but, since the onset of the Fukushima crisis, my thoughts have been very much with the people of Japan.

  11. I definitely want to sign in the petition.
    Is it still possible ?
    Which is the name of the web site to place my signature ?
    Or to which e-mail address may I send a letter with my signature ?
    We definitely MUST stop using nuclear energy and invest massively in energy efficiency.

  13. I fully support the movement. But I have one request: If possible, please set up the online registration for the petition. Even if Internet-based signatures are not effective in the CURRENT situation, they may prove to be forceful in the FUTURE. In addition, you will find a lot more supporters over the world! Cheers to the movement!

  14. Me auno a esta noble causa y a Acción 3.11, promovido por el Nobel Kenzaburo Oe, apoyado por respetables intelectuales y agrupaciones culturales del Japón y del Mundo, para decir: NO!!!, al uso de energías nucleares, ni para la Paz, ni la Guerra; como testimonio en el Japón, últimamente, FUKUSHIMA y anteriormente, HIROSHIMA Y NAGAZAKI.

  15. I support the movement, Lets rid the world of these dangerous toys for nature has illustrated that mankind is incapable of handling it. The Master of particle Physics, Albert Einstein though was excited to discover atomic energy, he did not forget to warn mankind of its destructive nature.
    Mother EARTH has produce enough energy for all mankind but capitalist greed has created shortage. Lets rely on safe energy to save mankind.
    Vivre the movement to safe mother Earth of from destruction. Long live the struggle to free mother earth of the Nuclear toys
    May our combined effort be successful.
    Lover fo Mother Earth Move Forward with fear of intimidation and oppression.
    Forward ever, Backwards never.
    Gambatte Kudaisai

  16. New environmental, green energy is at “your” doorsteps. Why invest in into possible cataclysm by “safe” atomic energy? Agragami has the answer right now and you can “see” it, feel it and talk to ….principal scientists, developers and designers. A number of countries in Europe and Asia and Americas are in the serious talks. They are waiting for you too.
