We Demand Rapid Evacuation of People Threatened with Radioactive Materials from Fukushima Nuclear Plants

 

March 20, 2011

We Urge the Japanese Government to Take the Following Actions Regarding the Crisis at the Fukushima Nuclear Plants:

Despite strenuous efforts, there is an increasing danger that large amounts of radioactive material might be released from Unit No. 3, which is loaded with fuel containing plutonium.  We are particularly concerned about the people currently within the 20-30 km zone from Fukushima Daiichi, who have been instructed to stay indoors until further notice.  These people should be evacuated as quickly as possible far away from the nuclear plant.

CNIC has been urging the government to prioritize evacuation of pregnant women, infants and children.  We once again strongly urge the government to take these actions.

It is also necessary to evacuate people from areas outside the 30 km zone that may be contaminated with significant amounts of radioactive materials.  We demand that the government proceed to a rapid evacuation.

(We note that it is our understanding that a short-term stay in these areas for the purpose of rescue operations will not entail major risk.)

福島原発の危機に際して日本政府に要求します
— 原子力資料情報室からのメッセージ(3)

2011.3.20

多大な努力にもかかわらず、福島第一原発で、プルトニウムをふくむ燃料を装荷している3号機から放射能が大量に放出される危険性が増大しています。特に心配されるのは、20から30キロ圏内で屋内待避を強いられている方々であり、可能な限りすみやかに遠方へ避難するべきと考えます。妊婦、小児、児童から優先的に避難できる手立てを取ることを私たちは政府に求めてきました。改めて強く政府の決断を求めます。

30キロ以遠でも相当量の放射能が届く恐れのある地域からは、やはり避難の必要があります。条件を整えて迅速に避難できるような体制をとることを求めます。(なお、短時間この地域に立ち入って救援活動を行うことによる大きなリスクはないと考えます)
