The Japanese Government is pushing ALL local governments in Japan located outside of the disaster stricken area of Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate prefectures to incinerate tsunami rubble and landfill the ashes.  However, the tsunami debris is contaminated with radionuclides, persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as dioxins, and asbestos which all cause long term harm to people and the environment.


Following the national government’s plan to burn rubble will result in the contamination of air, soil, water and food in areas which have not yet been directly impacted by Fukushima fallout.  There have been no environmental impact assessments done and current government safety tests have not been adequate to ensure the project will not cause great harm to human health or the environment.

We are asking all local government officials and involved parties in Japan to use the precautionary principle and NOT spread, burn or dump tsunami rubble anywhere outside of the contaminated areas.


汚染された津波のガレキを受け入れないで下さい! どうか皆様、これ以上日本が汚染されないようにご協力よろしくお願いします。
