Petition against Japanese export of nuke power technology

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Despite the on-going environmental and human disasters brought by the fallout from the Fukushima nuclear reactors meltdown, the Japanese government is hell-bent on continuing its export of what has become questionable nuclear power generation technologies.

A huge explosion occurred at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan following a major earthquake and tsunami

Since Fukushima, Japan has witnessed a revival of a citizen-led anti-nuclear power movement. As the crisis entered its sixth month, between 11 and 18 September, a week-long campaign is being mounted by civil society and environmental organisations to pressure the government to abandon its plan to sell such undesirable technologies abroad amid unresolved crisis back home.

Malaysia is one of several countries that had entered into a cooperation agreement with Japan to acquire Japanese nuclear technologies and the Malaysian government has insisted that it will go ahead with its plan to build two reactors following Fukushima. Hence, I urge you to support the Japanese public campaign in telling its government to stop promoting its nuclear technologies abroad.

You can do so by signing the petition here.

Please help to disseminate this campaign to your friends and contacts and via all your social networking sites.

Ehm, why would the rest of the world oppose Japanese nuclear technology exports?? Owning shares in french nuclear company Areva perhaps? The company that designed the majority of the plant was GE – an American company. Get your fatcs straight.

The plant is more than 40 years old and newer American/Japanse/French nuclear technology is much better. I do understand the call to stress-test and look at the operations of older reactors though.


Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
