started this petition to
Osaka Mayor Matsui Ichiro
Osaka Mayor Matsui Ichiro and his Japan Innovation Party wants to bring radioactive water stored at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant all the way to Osaka Bay and dump it.

Where is Osaka Bay?
Osaka Prefecture is located in western Japan, more than 700 km away from Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, and is one of the regions that were unaffected by the nuclear accident in 2011.Osaka Bay provides an abundant fish stocks for not only Osaka but also adjacent prefectures.

What is radioactive water? Is it really dangerous?
The ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) is said to remove various radioactive particles from coolant water of the damaged reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. However, the ALPS is under development and the processed liquid still contains 1,621,000 becquerels of tritium, 829 becquerels of cesium-137 and 954,300 becquerels of the beta radiation PER LITRE! But that's just an example. There are more radioactive particles left in the water.

Why do we fight?
Discharging radioactive water into Osaka Bay will devastate local fish stocks and marine environment in western Japan. Consuming contaminated fish will impose critical health risks such as cancer on human. Our food, fish industry, and unique ecosystem are all at risk. We must protect Osaka Bay!

Mayor Matsui and Japan Innovation Party completely ignore radioactive hazard on human and environment. We fight no matter what to protect beautiful ocean and future generation! WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW! No matter where you live, if you want to stop the authority spreading radioactive water and contaminating safe areas, please sign this petition!
