2:49 Japanese court: “Evacuate the children? No thank you.”

2 years, 49 days and counting.

The world-renowned political dissident, linguist and author Noam Chomsky commented on the ruling of Sendai High Court which rejected a demand that a city affected by the fallout of the country’s 2011 nuclear disaster evacuate its children.

Chomsky said:

It is deeply disturbing to learn that the courts have blocked efforts to evacuate children from the Fukushima site, though acknowledging the health risks. Nothing tells us more about the moral level of a society than how it treats the most vulnerable, in this case its most precious possession, its children. I hope and trust that this grim decision will be reversed.

Noam Chomsky

 

Please support the campaign for evacuation of the children

Can you help us send messages to the court from all over the world?

The Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team is collecting messages to judges from international celebrities and campaigners. The Japanese authorities tend to be vulnerable to criticism from abroad. In order to show the strong international interest and support for the trial, the trial support team would like to film as many video messages as possible to the judges from all over the world. If you sympathise with our struggle, please do get in touch. Do let us know if you have a contact with any international celebrities, politicians or well-known campaigners who are prepared to give us a short message. Volunteers of the trial support team will make an arrangement with them and decide when and where filming can take place. Please contact: fukuchima-picture@song-deborah.com
