25th January 2014: national day of protest against India-Japan nuclear agreement

Solidarity statement

To the attention of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the people of India,

The Coalition Against Nukes stands in solidarity with the people of India to send a clear message to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and the nuclear industry. Your nuclear technologies are NOT welcome in India and they are not welcome anywhere.

As citizens of the world we demand an end to the export of nuclear technologies that are spreading cancer and death, contaminating our air and land, and polluting our waters. We instead call for an international cooperation to transform our energy practices into renewable, safe and non polluting technologies. We are tired of our governments acting as front people for the global nuclear mafia and will only intensify our peaceful resistance to these practices.

We are united across borders and continue to grow. We will no longer allow Democracy to be held hostage by the monied interests of your nuclear sponsors. We demand that you represent the interests of the people.

Yours in urgency,

The Coalition Against Nukes
