The Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) are preparing to release “ALPS-treated” contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean despite strong opposition from both within and outside of Japan.
The Japanese government has stated that it will not take any action without the consent of relevant stakeholders. However, everyone who shares the Pacific Ocean will be affected. Japan must consult not only Japanese fishermen, but also other communities in Japan and other parts of the world, including Pacific Island nations.
Let’s listen to the voices of young Marshallese in the Pacific, whose livelihoods depend on the ocean, and people active in the West Coast of the United States. As people to together live in different parts of the Pacific Rim, let us collaborate to find a way to halt the dumping of radioactive water into the ocean.
