Nuclear disaster: Japan now, India next?
To Prime Minister Manmohan Singh:
As concerned citizens of India we call on you to stop the Jaitapur nuclear park development. As the disaster in Japan shows, building the worlds largest nuclear park close to the coast and in an earthquake hot spot poses an unnecessary threat to the health and safety of our people.

The Jaitapur nuclear reactors have been rubber-stamped by State authorities and the Environment Ministry, but Prime Minister Singh can intervene to suspend the plants' construction. With Japan's catastrophe fueling media scrutiny and public outcry, the project's financial backers are thinking about pulling out -- and Singh is deciding whether to rush to the project's rescue, or move to end it.
Our voices can tip the balance. This is the crucial moment: if enough of us call on Singh to stop the project now, we can make the project too controversial to continue. When the petition reaches 50,000 we'll deliver it to media and the Prime Minister’s office -- sign now and then send this to family and friends.
