(en) France, Alternative Libertaire Tract AL, Fukushima still kills. Let's get down with nuclear power! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 15 Mar 2017 12:32:11 +0200

Despite the Japanese Government's denials, the number of cancers detected in the population is increasing sharply. Lies about the decontamination of the area are unacceptable. ---- After six years of dantesque work to at least mop up the radioactive leakage of a power station still impossible to approach, except by robots and again, the observation is there: we still do not know how to manage a nuclear accident, Is impossible. ---- Absolute Risk Company ---- By 2016, 90% of the radioactive cesium emitted by molten reactors was found to be in the form of glass microbeads, the half-life of which (at the end of which the radioactivity divides by two) is thirty years instead of Two years in another form. We found them all the way to Tokyo! ---- By February 2017, record levels of radioactivity were recorded at the heart of the plant, and leakage of contaminated water into the ocean (300 m3 per day from 2011 to 2016) has only recently been reduced.

Yet Japan has been "decontaminating" the area at great expense since 2013, prompting displaced people to return to live in Fukushima township, consume their vegetables, and finally agree to live in a region that kills as if nothing Had happened. Japan spends more than 10 billion euros each year on propaganda and crisis management.

Flight forward

Yet nothing changes in the will of our leaders to impose nuclear power everywhere. Nothing seems to be able to weaken the powerful network of lobbies, industrialists and technocrats of the nuclear industry, which try to make it indispensable because it is linked to capitalist empires.

In Japan, for example, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NPA) has hand-picked Tepco, the multinational company that operated Fukushima, to restart 20-year-old reactors in spite of seismic and wear-related risks. In France, we persist with the EPR of Flamanville, now planned for 2018.

As for atomic weapons and military nuclear we are not near to see the end ... The United Nations is trying in March 2017 to start a process towards the criminalization of tear. But when the motion was tabled in October 2016, all the nuclear countries and their diplomatic satellites (38 states in all) voted against ...

Incompetence and duplicity

But it is not just disaster management that is a problem. Nuclear power is so oversized that, from the moment of manufacture, there is hardly the capacity to produce such power plants, as evidenced by the episode of defects in the EPR tank.

Above all, behind the slogans of risk management upstream, the reality of the nuclear industry is the laxity of security conditions: built or extended on seismic sites (Japan), MOX is used ( More polluting) despite the contraindications. Finally, at the end of the chain, we are tinkering with delirious projects of burial of highly toxic waste, as in Bure where fortunately, resistance is organized!
