Who pays for a nuclear disaster? It’s a question we raised three years ago and secured a strong supplier liability clause in the Nuclear Liability Act in our country. Now Japan is raising the same question.
Sadly, it has come two years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. GE, Toshiba and Hitachi who built and serviced the nuclear reactors in Fukushima have managed to walk awaywithout paying a dime for the nuclear accident. The cost of the Fukushima nuclear disaster is now being paid by the peopleof Japan.
People all over the world are gathering support for a law that holds suppliers responsible for nuclear accidents. You helped put pressure on the Indian Government to implement a strong supplier liability clause in the Nuclear Liability Act. Your support to this worldwide movement for stringent supplier liability will beinvaluable.
Show your support for a strong nuclear liability law. Help Japan hold its suppliers responsible for the Fukushima disaster.
An official government review found that faulty equipment had a major role to play in the Fukushima accident, which was triggered by the tsunami. So GE, Toshiba and Hitachi are indeed responsible for what happened in Fukushima. Yet they have been able to walk away from their responsibility.
This is unfair and unjust. Hundreds of thousands of people in Japan lost their homes, jobs and communities. None of them have received enough compensation to rebuild their lives.
A strong supplier liability provision like that in India, would have made these companies act more responsibly. We have made India the only country with a strong nuclear supplier liability clause that makes nuclear suppliers liable in case of an accident. Let’s help the people of Japan get justice too.
Support strong nuclear supplier liability now!
