EXTREMELY URGENT: Stop Fukushima Prefecture from Killing Animal Survivors
SUCCESS: The Japanese government has revised the order, the massacre has been called off!
In an attempt to decontaminate towns following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of last year, the Japanese government has announced an order to kill all surviving animals in the No-entry Zones. The operation involves tying their paws and feet together with ropes, injecting them with chemicals (believed to be detergent) and leaving them to suffer an agonizing death. Once the killing is complete, the government intends to block the zones, thereby also preventing animal rescue groups from stepping in.
A previous campaign to stop Tomioka town from killing animals was successful. Preparations are being made in Okuma town, Futaba and Namie are to follow. Please stop them from going through with this massacre!
I ask that the town officials immediately put a stop to these plans for a massacre and instead supply relief goods in form of food and medical care, and expand the relief work by allowing animal rescue groups and volunteers to enter the exclusion zone in order to rescue as many animals as possible.
