Thank you everyone who signed and supported this campaign. Your signature was delivered by hand to Consulate General of Japan in Brisbane in Australia on 26th June 2012.
Unfortunately, despite huge opposition from Japanese citizens and also people from all over the world, Ohi nuclear power plants has been restarted on 1st July 2012.
We must not give up! Fukushima is not finished. There are many reactors on fault lines.
Let's keep working for nuclear free planet. Please be informed about what is happening in Japan.
Japan moved closer to restarting the first of the nation's 50 idled nuclear plants as the prime minister signaled that he might order a start-up as early as next week.
Now, the fate of Kansai Electric Power Company's Ohi plant reactor #3 and #4 in western Japan are in the hands of prime minister Noda after Fukui prefecture formally accepted restart of 2 reactors on 16th June after Ohi town/Fukui prefectural nuclear commission approval.
Some experts are warning that another big earthquake may happen this very year. If they are right, another Fukushima disaster will be inevitable.
If the three active fault lines around Ohi power plant move together it could reach 1,270gul. The Ohi plants safety stress tests are based on 700gul, only taking into account worst case scenario for two faults not the three. Wakasa Gulf of Fukui prefecture holds not only Ohi but Takahama, Mihama, Tsuruga and Monjyu; total of 14 nuclear plants.
As a responsible member of the international community, Japan should not make a decision which exposes the world to a new risk of radioactive contamination.
We call on all citizens of the world to stand with us and appeal to Prime minister Noda before he make a final decision on the restart of Ohi nuclear power plant.
If the restart of Ohi is forced to go ahead, the rest of the nuclear power plants in Japan may also be restarted.
Please spread the word, we do not need another Fukushima!
We, the undersigned, URGENTLY call on Prime minister Yoshihiko Noda to stop restarting Ohi nuclear power plants.
We are concerned that the government and Kansai Electric Power Company have not done enough to ensure safety against natural disasters.
We demand that, as a responsible member of the international community, Japan will not make a decision which exposes the world to a new risk of radioactive contamination.
