New York City, NY – December 7, 2015 The Coalition Against Nukes and On Behalf of Planet Earth, along with the U.S. anti-nuclear community are standing in solidarity with our counterparts in India and Japan that have launched an international appeal demanding the halt of an impending nuclear deal between the governments of Japan and India that is set to be signed between the 11th and 13th of December during the Japanese prime minister’s visit to India.
“With the, yet uncontained, radioactive nightmare ongoing at Fukushima continuing to contaminate the Pacific Ocean, Japan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe’s push to sell nuclear technology to the fragile and unstable country of India is profit and greed driven madness,” said Priscilla Star, founder of the Coalition Against Nukes.… Read More
It is tragic that Japan, the only country that has been the victim of nuclear bombs, is actively promoting nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants in a region already fraught with conflicts and sectarianism.
Shinzo Abe’s deal would potentiate ecocide in India.
Shinzo Abe’s deal would unleash nuclear horror on the hapless farmers of India.
Shinzo Abe’s deal preys on the government of India, a country that has a pathetic record on safety, a spineless nuclear regulator, and has bulldozed local communities’ protests against nuclear power plants.
Shinzo Abe’s deal legitimizes India’s nuclear weapons and boosts India’s weapons capacity, fueling the arms race in South Asia.
International Appeal Against India-Japan Nuclear Agreement
Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace (CNDP)
Petitioning Prime Minister of Japan Mr. Shinzo Abe,
We strongly protest the proposed India-Japan nuclear agreement, which is reportedly going to be signed during your upcoming visit to New Delhi on December 11-13. This nuclear agreement does not only represent an unacceptable zeal to promote nuclear lobbies on the part of Mr. Abe, despite the deepening crisis in Fukushima, but also gives a new lease of life to the nuclear industry facing a terminal crisis in the post-Fukushima world.
Sign this petition!
