Abstract

The 2nd worst Nuke Crisis, which has begun 21 month ago in March 11, 2011 from Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Station, has not settled in any sense, but is posing Fukushima people very difficult and unprecedented challenges. This presentation will examine following points:

  1. A brief view on the troubled 4 reactors of the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Power Station, in terms of continuing radiation discharge, on-going but slow dismantling process that takes more than 30-40 years, higher radiation levels in Fukushima Prefecture. etc.
  2. The present location of Fukushima people, such as restriction areas (totally, night time etc.), locations and relocations(evacuations) of people, returning plans of some municipalities after decontamination, and ideas of relocating some municipalities.
  3. Complicated compensation by TEPCO which often induce new divisions among victims.
  4. Farmers’ agony and trials, such as ban of cultivation and sells, and an organic farmer Kannno’s actions and appeals.
  5. Recuperation movement of school children by some NPO and CBO.
  6. Near Future of Nuclear Power Generation in Japan and Asia: GOJ’s move to restart other Nuclear Reactors in Japan and moves to export to Asia, People’s persistent movement against Nukes, and Nuke policies of major political parties fighting in the on-going general election in Japan.

This presentation will urge peoples in the third world countries, which will be major constructors of new nuclear reactors, to deeper their understanding on the complicated and difficult situations and actions/reactions of people in and around Fukushima. It is executed that, through this deeper understanding, people will be more empowered to avoid such a crisis in future.

[在福岛核泄漏危机中幸存下去:人民的愤怒、伤痛和另类行动]

摘要

21个月前,2011年3月11日发生在日本的福岛第一核电站的核泄露灾难,作为人类历史上第二严重的核危机,至今尚未在任何意义上得到解决,却留给福岛人民(生产与生活上无数的)困难和空前的挑战。 这个发言将(就福岛核危机及福岛人民灾后的行动)审视以下几点:

  1. 简要地综述福岛第一核电站目前4个发生问题的反应堆,有关持续的核排放、进行中然而极其缓慢(要经历30到40年)的拆除过程、福岛县及其周围高辐射量等级等一系列的问题。
  2. 福岛人民现在的区位分布:比如疏散区的变化(全部、仅仅在夜间时间的等);居民的居住区域及再安置/疏散区域分布;清理核污染后,20平方公里辐射区内的一些政府机构的回归行动和计划,岩手县和周围其他地区的一些政府机构的迁移想法,以及因为部分人口的疏散行动新造成的家庭的分裂/分离问题。
  3. 东京电力公司完成的赔偿情况,赔偿过程中经常诱导导致受害者间的分裂。
  4. 农民的苦痛和(重建)尝试, 例如对耕作和贩卖的禁止,及菅野正寿等进行的有机农夫行动和诉求。
  5. 基于对政府辐射测量结果的不信任,市民自发组织的监测辐射活动的运动,包括对所以供销售和消费的食品进行辐射检测。
  6. NPO和CBO 组织的学校儿童的休养运动,以及人们关于订立“儿童受害者支持法案”的请求。
  7. 日本与亚洲核电一代的不远的将来:日本政府在日本重新开启其他核反应堆的活动以及将核反应堆出口到亚洲的动向,人民对核电的抵制运动,核电政策相关的几个主要政党及他们在日本正在进行中的选举中的争战。

本次发言旨在加深第三世界的人民对福岛复杂并严重的情况和人们的行动和反应的了解。敦促那些第三世界的人们,作为核反应堆的新的将来可能的主要建设者,通过对福岛核危机的深入了解,也许通过反对新核反应堆的建设、中止现在进行的项目、以及采纳“另类”能源的实践等,能够更自信地阻止(将来潜在的)一场核危机。
