Protest in Aomori

The National Network to Stop Radioactive Pollution from the Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant and Consumers Union of Japan have issued a call for action to stop the nuclear reprocessing plant at Rokkashomura in Aomori prefecture, Japan.

They are making the following demands:

1) We express our views about the actual damage due to radioactive contamination, in order to avoid rumours to spread.

2) We declare that we will independently measure radioactive contamination in order to protect the natural environment and the farming industry from increased levels of pollution.

3) We declare that we will cooperate with farmers and food producers, by connecting consumers to the land.

4) We call for opposition to radioactive pollution from the Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant, in order to protect the rich and plentiful natural environment, life and food, as well as the air and water.

Read the entire call for action on the website of Consumers Union of Japan. More details at Citizen's Nuclear Information Center (CNIC) - a great website about the problems with Japan's nuclear industry.

I am afraid that due to Japan's energy vulnerability, the government is not about to walk away from nukes any time soon.

They will, around 2040, when "Peak Uranium" sets in.
