Fukushima Animation -Statement-
Questions over "nuclear power"
"Let us stand up for children in Fukushima!"
Our government announced that annual upper limit of radiation exposure for schoolchildren in Fukushima Prefecture are now 20 millisieverts. However, normally it advises not exceeding an upper level of 1 millisievert per year for the general public. Can we let go of the situation?
Nuclear Power Plants/Nuclear Wastes
Tremendous amount of waste is produced from nuclear power plants. Some of them take quite long time to reduce their radioactivity. And we don’t have a clear-cut solution how to dispose the hazardous waste. And yet, at this very moment, the waste are keep mounting up.
"Antinuclear drawing" by Yuri Norstein.
There is no point making such a difference between peaceful versus military usage when it comes to nuclear power. The drawing was made by Yuri Norstein, as his response to the restart of nuclear experiment in France, 1995.

Radioactive waste coming from nuclear power plants can be reprocessed for military purposes. Those countries who desire for nuclear weapons are likely to support nuclear power plants. Nuclear experiments, nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants are all hazardous "nuclear power".
The explosion at Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant was world-scale disaster.
And Fukushima has already been the world-wide term "Fukushima"
Radioactive shower falls upon metropolitan Tokyo as well, though it may be minor.
In this regard, the city is not cut off from the disaster.
We don’t know how to handle the nuclear waste. The disaster is yet to be settled, but our government hides information and still supports the nuclear power.
Now is the time we say it out loud, "we need NO nuclear power for our children! "
