From Fukushima to the World, a message of Sachiko Sato the leader of Fukushima Network
After one year and four months has passed, the "3.11 nuclear disaster" is still ongoing. So many lives of Fukushima residents were completely changed because of the accident. Since radiation is invisible, some people could not admit its danger to their body and some stopped thinking while we alarmed the necessity of evacuation from the contaminated areas. Sadly, these differences in opinions made us apart. Even with the beloved ones, our warnings were not accepted and we became isolated. The only thing we wanted to tell was the impact of radiation to children's body is far more significant although they have no responsibility to the accident.
Everyone wishes to bring the ordinary and peaceful days back before the "3.11 accident". But, the day will never arrive as long as the nuclear power plants are running. Besides, if we continue
our life styles producing and consuming mass materials in an unreserved manner and spending unlimited electricity as ever, we will face other issues threatening our lives. We are at the point
where we need to reconsider the way of living.
I believe Fukushima Daiich Nuclear Power Plant accident left us an important message in order for us to protect the children in the future. “Never repeat the same tragedy again”. Fukushima residents must pass down this message to the future generation. For those who receive this message, please pass it to the people around. I believe small wills of individuals will turn into a big power to change whole world.
