Don’t abandon Fukushima’s children

To Fukushima governor Sato Yuhei:

As citizens across Japan we call on you to maintain government assistance for voluntary evacuation to Fukushima’s residents. We are concerned about the children of Fukushima, who are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of long-term exposure to radiation. We ask that you ensure residents of Fukushima can welcome the new year with hope by protecting this crucial lifeline.

Don’t abandon Fukushima’s children

Increasingly anxious about the impacts of radiation on their children, Fukushima's mothers are facing a new setback that could kill their hopes forever -- the imminent withdrawal of vital evacuation assistance. But if we all stand with the brave mothers now, we can help restore their hopes for a safe future.

Despite the billions of Yen allocated for Fukushima reconstruction, Governor Sato's plan to end relocation assistance is placing thousands of families between a rock and a hard place, either they hurriedly leave their homes, ruining their children's school year or lose the assistance they desperately need to save their families.

We only have a few days to persuade Governor Sato to reconsider his decision -- last year an outcry forced him not to cut this crucial lifeline, and if enough of us act now, we can do the same again. Click to sign the urgent petition and tell everyone -- when 50,000 people have signed, a massive card will be delivered to the Governor's office with the message “Don’t abandon Fukushima’s children in the new year”.
