Steering Committee of March 11 Anti-NPP Fukushima Action

“Am I a hibakusha (the exposed to radioactive fallout)?”—murmured casually a high school boy who came to a recuperation program for a short holiday with no blame on anybody else.
“Where were you when the March 11?”—a heartless question that girls are scared of being asked when they reach a marriageable age.
Those fifty nine children*, having been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, are becoming increasingly anxious.
It is an undeniable fact that a growing number of Fukushima children are sharing the same feeling with such boys and girls. They are facing—and will continue to face— with a harsh reality.
The hell with Olympic! Can we allow those people suffering in temporary housing—forced to leave their hometown, separated from their families and deeply hurt—left abandoned by the state? Are we OK, to let the Fukushima people be kimin, or “abandoned people”?

Nuclear power plants were constructed by a handful of pro-nuclear advocates, called the “Nuclear Village” (or nuclear mafia) with a greedy aim of reaping a huge benefit,. When the nuclear accident happened, they soon changed their nameplate to “Decontamination Village” and again plotting to earn profits by conducting phony decontaminations. The scholars under the government’s thumb shamelessly disguise highly radiation-contaminated areas under the name of “safe” places and encourage abandoned people to go back to their hometown under the name of Reconstruction. The government wants to pretend that nothing had happened in Fukushima with the only aim of restarting domestic nuclear plants and exporting nuclear facilities to the world.

Even today, the Fukushima nuclear power plant is still releasing radioactive materials to the air at a rate of 10 million Becquerel per hour.

The workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are exposed to tremendous levels of radiation. Also, the highly-contaminated radioactive water is flowing into the Pacific Ocean each day and ending up across the world.

Quite contrary to the insincere and false statement of Prime Minister Abe that “the situation (of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant) is under control”, people on the earth are undoubtedly facing the growing risk of their lives from radiation.

“We will never be deceived any longer.” “Construction of many nuclear power plants and their disastrous explosion are the consequence of reducing workers into silent existence obedient to capitalists.”

This summer, supported by the expectation of all layers of citizen, workers and manufacturers including young casual workers, Taro Yamamoto, an independent candidate, won the Upper House Election getting nearly 700 thousand votes.

Times are changing now. The strong will and resolve to change this world have brought about this victory
and opened up a prospect for bright future.

The Diet is making much ado about the planned Olympic Games in Tokyo in an attempt of blacking out grave consequences of Fukushima nuclear power plant accident.

While all political parties are degenerating into a system-friendly force, Taro Yamamotois a single person who opposed to 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. And, he is courageously shouting on the street to decommission all nuclear plants, to prevent war and to fight against the State Secrecy Act.

The present situation looks quite similar to the prewar Japanese society. But there is a remarkable difference.: now many younger people are following Yamamoto in his contestation and rising up, saying “we will never let you alone in your efforts.”


The nuclear power plants workers symbolize silent casual workers.

If they have got a right to go on a strike by their own union, times will immediately change.

The government is promoting a movement of returning the residents to their still dangerous hometown and thereby forcing the municipal workers and teachers to work in radioactive-contaminated circumstances. If their unions have the strength to hold a strike action, a further step would be made to change the whole situation.

In order to promote such “Back to Hometown” campaign, the Japan Railway East Company is restarting part of Joban Line in highly contaminated zones, which has been shut off since the nuclear accident. However, the militant railway unions have been fighting back against repair and inspection of contaminated trains for the preparation of the reopening of the track. The National Railway Motive Power Union of Mito (Doro-Mito) repeatedly waged strikes to protest and stop this plan. The Koriyama Factory Branch of National Railway Workers Union (Kokuro) demanded protective clothing against radioactive dust for repair work. They are the very pathfinders of crucial struggle focused on internal exposure in the world labor movement.

As the third anniversary of the nuclear accident is nearing, people in Fukushima are seemingly overwhelmed by despair and surrender rather than anger and fighting back. However, strongholds of anti-nuclear struggle with a clear perspective have been also steadily growing. Mothers and doctors decry the Back to Hometown campaign as a human experimentation and concealment of the radioactive exposure; supporters from around the country and the world are collaborating with them.

March 11 is the day of nationwide and worldwide Anti-NPP action: the day of commemoration and struggle: the day of forging unity and solidarity in order to change the society and take back our future. We will make March 11, 2014, a day of fight, gathering all the angry voices in Fukushima. We shall never let the TEPCO and the government evade their responsibility. Let's organize every anger of children, students, parents, residents in the “temporary” housing, farmers, fishers and workers!

No nuclear power plants! No radioactive fallout! Stop abandoning Fukushima!
Overthrow Abe administration!
Let's make a new society without nuclear power plants and weapons!
Let's make a militant demonstration on March 11 with angry voices!
