'저는 그들의 땅을 지키기 위하여 싸웠던 인디안들의 이야기를 기억합니다. 백인들이 그들의 신성한 숲에 도로를 만들기 위하여 나무들을 잘랐습니다. 매일밤 인디안들이 나가서 백인들이 만든 그 길을 해체하면 그 다음 날 백인들이 와서 도로를 다시 짓곤 했습니다. 한동안 그 것이 반복되었습니다. 그러던 어느날, 숲에서 가장 큰 나무가 백인들이 일할 동안 그들 머리 위로 떨어져 말과 마차들을 파괴하고 그들 중 몇몇을 죽였습니다. 그러자 백인들은 떠났고 결코 다시 오지 않았습니다….' (브루스 개그논)

[Urgent Petition from Japan ] No new nuclear plant at Kaminoseki upon the COP 10 [일본으로부터의 연대 청원] 생물 다양성 회담 10개 정당 모임을 맞아 카미노세키의 새로운 핵 공장 반대 연대 청원 요청

* E-mail 1 from Junko Okura on Oct. 20, 2010

Dear endorsers from abroad,

Just a few lines to say thank you for your endorsement to the
"International Joint Statement to the Delegates for the COP10" against
the new nuclear power plant project in Kaminoseki, Yamaguchi
prefecture, where is one of the hot spots of biodiversity on Japan.
Also I really appreciate your cooperation in forwarding the action
alert to your contacts.

I believe you'll receive a gratitude letter from the organizers of
this statement but I'd like to report urgently the numbers of the
signatories.

The statement has collected the signatures of 293 organizations from
14 countries and the press conference was successfully held on 19th at COP10.

You can see the names of endorsers on this site;
http://ameblo.jp/nonukekaminoseki/entry-10678414280.html

(please scroll down the text then you can find them below the Japanese
translation of the statement. The original statement in English is at the bottom.)

If you find any problems of the list of the endorsers (e.x. you can't
find the name of your organization, misspelling, etc.) please send
e-mail to mail to: nonukekaminoseki@yahoo.co.jp

Also you can watch the video of the press conference;
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10293205?

I also appreciate your comments in your messages. They are pointing
out correctly how nuclear power won't work to prevent the climate
change while there are a lot of unsolved problems, also they are full
of compassion to the local people who are fighting for their
sustainable lives and environment.

I hope the Japanese government will consider our request seriously
and stop constructing the Kaminoseki Nuclear power plant, as well as
change drastically their pro-nuclear policies.

With best regards,

Junko Okura

Hello again,

I'd like to introduce you the English pages of "Hiroshima-Kaminoseki
Link" website.
It has a report of the press conference in COP10. Also it explains the
details of the Kaminoseki nuclear power plant project. It's handy to
forward and explain to your friends about this issue.

The Chugoku Electric Power Company, which is planning to build
a new nuclear plant at Kaminoseki in the Seto Inland Sea National Park,
is about to start the landfill work while the Japanese Government is
hosting COP15.

Although the area is one of the biodiversity hotspots in Japan, the
government is silently approving this destructive development, or rather is backing
it strongly, based on its pro-nuclear policies.

Please read the appeal below and send the endorsement of your organization by 24:00 (in Japan) of 18th to sdaisuke@rice.ocn.ne.jp

The strong opposition movement of local residents has continued for 28 years.
You can see some pictures of their struggle in the blogs below (only
in Japanese language).

Some young activists has started hunger-strike against the landfill work.

Dear friends

Please endorse the following Statement as organization.

****************************************************************************

International Joint Statement to the Delegates for the COP 10
in solidarity with Hiroshima-Kaminoseki Link


BIODIVERSITY is Endangered by a Proposed Nuclear Plant Near Hiroshima.
Please put it high on the agenda at the COP10 in Japan.

The Chugoku Electric Power Company, based in Hiroshima, is trying to construct
a nuclear plant at Kaminoseki in the Seto Inland Sea National Park,
a BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOT.

This project can irrevocably damage the pristine environment for life by

: replacing sea water with LANDFILL
: RAISING sea water TEMPERATURE
: risking devastating EARTHQUAKES (concentrated active faults around the site)

We are also concerned about radioactive contamination and internal RADIATION
exposure from low dose radiation release.

We urge you to make Kaminoseki an issue in the conference, and put pressure
on the Japanese government to take serious measures for protecting the
biodiversity.
