Why aren't the nuclear reactor builders also liable for the Fukushima disaster!?

This petition had 1,212 supporters


We, more than 4,000 people from 39 countries including Japan filed a joint lawsuit on Jan. 30 and Mar. 10 in 2014 against three companies that manufactured reactors at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, calling for the companies' liabilities of the damages caused by their reactor meltdowns in 2011.

This lawsuit filed at the Tokyo District Court is a landmark challenge to the current regulations that give manufacturers immunity from liability in nuclear accidents.  Under Japan's nuclear damage compensation policy, only the operator of the plant, TEPCO has held responsibility of the accident.  

But we believe that the ultimate cause of the accident lies in the reactors themselves, therefore the reactor builders should take responsibility financially and socially. 

Please sign the petition because this is the first concrete step to get rid of nuclear power plants from the world.
