3ème Forum Mondial Social antinucléaire :: Paris, 2-4 novembre 2017




En route vers un monde sans nucléaire, ni civil ni militaire

(english below*) De nouvelles thématiques sont venues enrichir la dynamique du Forum Social Mondial (FSM) depuis la première session qui a eu lieu à Porto Alegre en 2001. Le premier Forum Social Anti-nucléaire s’est tenu au printemps 2016 à Tokyo, où un « Appel pour un réseau mondial vers un monde sans nucléaire » a été lancé. A Montréal, un second Forum Antinucléaire a eu lieu à l’occasion du FSM.
En 2017, c’est en France, pays le plus nucléarisé au monde, que se tiendra le troisième Forum Social Mondial antinucléaire.
Pour débattre de toutes les questions liées à la lutte contre le nucléaire civil et militaire, nous vous invitons à une rencontre internationale, où nous partagerons nos expériences et chercherons ensemble les moyens d’agir pour l’émergence d’un monde sans armes nucléaires et sans production d’énergie d’origine nucléaire.

On the road to a nuclear-free world, neither civilian nor military

New themes have been added to the dynamics of the World Social Forum since the first session held in Porto Alegre in 2001. The first Anti-Nuclear Social Forum was held in Tokyo in the spring of 2016, For a global network towards a nuclear-free world "was launched. In Montreal, a second Antinuclear Forum was held on the occasion of the WSF.

In 2017, the third nuclear World Anti-Nuclear Forum will be held in France, the most nuclearized country in the world.

To discuss all issues related to the fight against the civilian and military nuclear we invite you to an international meeting where we will share our experiences and seek together the means to act for the emergence of a world without nuclear weapons and Without the production of nuclear energy.

A report from the 5.11 Monthly No Nukes Action rally・5/11 抗議集会からの報告 | No Nukes Action Committee



The scary mountain fire in the restricted area in Fukushima had started on April 29 and continued burning until a day before our rally. It had lasted for twelve days! 5000 people worked to put the fire out with hazmat suits. On April 8 it was recorded 3-9 times higher cesium label than previous day at the spots in nearby towns. But this mountain fire news never became the major news on any media.

Is this because the media’s self censor-ship?

The mountain fire was announced in one of speak-outs

The letter to PM Abe was written by Dan Marlin who has been still in and out of hospital.
And Yoko Clark read out his letter. Please read his letter attached bottom.
We will get together again at SF Japanese Consulate on June 11 at 3 pm.
Please join us!

Stop Cuomo’s costly nuclear plant bailout - NY Daily News


New Yorkers shouldn’t have to pay for energy they will never use. Which is why Gov. Cuomo should be consistent and close, along with Indian Point, three other outdated nuclear power plants near Rochester and Oswego.
Instead, he is taking $7.6 billion from New York ratepayers and giving it to a hugely profitable, Illinois-based energy company to keep the three plants open…

5/11/17 SF Japan Consulate Speak-out-Evacuate The Families and Children Of Fukushima And Stop The Cover-up | No Nukes Action Committee


Thursday May, 11, 2017 3:00 PM
San Francisco Japanese Consulate
275 Battery St./California St.
San Francisco
The continuing danger of radioactive contamination  at Fukushima is a threat not only to the people of Fukushima and Japan but the world. There are thousands of contaminated water tanks surrounding the broken nuclear plants and the government continues to push to re-open the plant. The cases of thyroid cancer area also growing and the government issuing the secrecy laws to prevent information about the continuing escalation of cancer cases throughout the country.
The drive for more nuclear power is now combined with the drive by the Abe administration to eliminate article 9 of the Japanese constitution which prevents offensive war. The escalation toward war in Asia and the building of more US military bases in Okinawa despite mass opposition of the population.
The Japanese Abe  government has  cut off money for housing benefits for the families while  it is spending billions of dollars to “decontaminate Fukushima” at  to build Henoko naval base and a new military airforce base in Okinawa. The bases will contain nuclear weapons which are not not supposed to be brought to Okinawa.
We call for the defense of the families in Fukushima and continued compensation by TEPCO.

Tell EPA to withdraw the OBAMA PAGs or “Protective Action Guides!” #petition


The Trump Administration wants to reduce regulatory burden and is asking what regulations can be withdrawn.
Tell the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to withdraw the Radioactive OBAMA PAGs or “Protective Action Guides!”
THE DEADLINE IS MAY 15, 2017!
The Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] is seeking input on regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification. 
SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS ON DOCKET ID NO. EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190 BY SUBMITTING THE FORM OR ON WWW.REGULATIONS.GOV
Ask the EPA to repeal the so called “Protective Action Guides” or PAGs--the 2017 Drinking Water PAGs and the 2013 PAGs. They are a burden on health and safety, on public and private water systems, on our health care system and on the American public.
On the very last day of the Obama Administration, Jan 19, 2017, the US EPA adopted UnProtective Action Guidance allowing radiation levels hundreds and thousands of times higher than currently allowed in drinking water and at cleaned-up Superfund sites.
TELL EPA TO WITHDRAW THE OBAMA PAGS OR “PROTECTIVE ACTION GUIDES!”
A-The “Protective” Action “Guides” are NOT PROTECTIVE. They allow thousands, and in at least one case, millions of times, more radioactivity in our drinking water than allowed under EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act. 
B-The “Protective” Action “Guides are NOT GUIDES. They are regulations in disguise—they are called guides but deceptively circumvent the Safe Drinking Water limits on radioactivity in drinking water shifting the burden and liability for cleanup to the local municipal water districts or private water suppliers. 
C-Rather than only applying in emergencies, like the Fukushima disaster or a big dirty bomb, they could be used after any “incidents...that warrant consideration of protective action,” like a spill or accidental release. 
The EPA can prevent unnecessary burdens from dangerous high radiation levels in our drinking water by repealing the radioactive PAGs adopted in the final moments of the Obama Administration.

After 60 years of nuclear power, the industry survives only on stupendous subsidies - The Ecologist


Almost 60 years since the world's first commercial nuclear power station began to deliver power to the UK's grid, the industry remains as far from being able to cover its costs as ever, writes Pete Dolack. But while unfunded liabilities increase year by year, governments are still willing to commit their taxpayers' billions to new nuclear plants with no hope of ever being viable.

If the owners and operators of nuclear reactors had to face the full costs, no one would have built a nuclear reactor in the past, no one would build a reactor today, and anyone who owned one would exit the nuclear business as quickly as they could.
The ongoing environmental disaster at Fukushima is a grim enough reminder of the dangers of nuclear power. But nuclear does not make sense economically, either.
The entire industry would not exist without massive government subsidies. Quite an insult: Subsidies prop up an industry that points a dagger at the heart of the communities where ever it operates.

The building of nuclear power plants drastically slowed after the disasters at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, so it is at a minimum reckless that the latest attempt to resuscitate nuclear power pushes forward heedless of Fukushima's discharge of radioactive materials into the air, soil and ocean…

EMERGENCY AT HANFORD | Beyond Nuclear press statement on #Hanford tunnel collapse onto train cars storing #radioactive waste. #nuclear http://bit.ly/2qnVJfw (PDF) | NEWS LINKS




NEWS FROM BEYOND NUCLEAR
For immediate release
Contact: Kevin Kamps, Radioactive Waste Watchdog, Beyond Nuclear, 240-462-3216; Paul Gunter, Director, Reactor Oversight Project, Beyond Nuclear 301-523-0201

Another radioactive waste accident, this time at Hanford, shows nuclear dump sites are not under control

TAKOMA PARK, MD, May 9, 2017 -- A tunnel at the Hanford Nuclear Site in Washington State collapsed today on top of railcars stored there that contain “mixed” radioactive waste, an accident that local watchdog group, Hanford Challenge, describes as a “crisis.”
The tunnel is located next to the Plutonium Uranium Extraction Facility, also known as PUREX, and contains substances classified as “dangerous waste.” The collapse prompted an initial evacuation of workers in the area that then spread to a “take cover” order for the entire site.

The already embattled Hanford site was originally part of the Manhattan Project, and a major supplier of military plutonium. It houses 177 storage tanks containing liquid radioactive sludges, some of which have been leaking radioactive effluent that could eventually threaten the Columbia River. Cleanup at the site did not begin until 1989. The Hanford tunnel collapse may have been caused by soil subsidence due to vibrations from nearby road works.

"The current unfolding crisis at Hanford, the bursting barrel at Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico in 2014, and the exploding radioactive waste dump in Beatty, Nevada in 2015, show that radioactive waste management is out of control," said Kevin Kamps, Radioactive Waste Watchdog at Beyond Nuclear.
page1image14192 page1image14352

”That’s why the Yucca Mountain dump in Nevada, the Canadian dump targeted at the Great Lakes shore, and the parking lot dumps in Texas and New Mexico must be blocked, to prevent future disasters," Kamps added.

WIPP, a radioactive waste repository mainly for military waste and situated near Carlsbad, NM, suffered an accident on February 14, 2014. The explosion there released radioactivity that exposed workers who were stationed above ground at the time and forced an almost three-year shutdown of the site. The disaster cost $2 billion and counting. As at Hanford, a relatively minor event — the use of the wrong kitty litter for cleanup — was blamed for the WIPP accident, prompting serious questions about competence and safeguards at such critically dangerous sites.

A leak in a massive nuclear waste storage tank at Hanford in April 2016 was described as "catastrophic" by a former tank farm worker there, even as the U.S. Department of Energy tried to downplay the problem.

Most commercial radioactive waste is currently stored at reactor sites around the country. However, military radioactive waste has continued to pose an on-going storage nightmare. Beyond Nuclear advocates for commercial reactor waste to be stored on-site but in facilities known as Hardened On-Site Storage, or HOSS, and not in the risky pools and inadequate waste casks, as is the current practice.

Wildfires near Fukushima reignite Chernobyl-like fears of contamination - Bellona.org




Wildfires that broke out in a mountain forest near the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant last weekend are causing worries that radiation from the 2011 disaster might be spread with the smoke, dust and flames.
Eight helicopters from Fukushima, Miyagi and Gunma prefectures were dispatched to Mount Juman in Naime in the north east of the country, where radiation levels have remained high since the Fukushima plant experienced a triple meltdown in the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
When these helicopters couldn’t stop the blaze, said the Manichi, local officials summoned help from the Ground Self-Defense Force, a branch of the Japanese military.
The fire was apparently started by lighting in the abandoned area, which the Japanese government has designated as a “difficult-to-return” zone, meaning that evacuees of the initial disaster have not returned home due to persistently high radiation measurements.
The dangers arising from the fires in the irradiated area are similar to those that Russia and Ukraine combated when wildfires ripped through areas surrounding Chernobyl and the Mayak Chemical Combine during a drought-racked summer in 2010.
Fires around nuclear accident sites can spread radionuclides like cesium-137, strontium-90 and plutonium that can travel with the wind, posing a risk of internal exposure to anyone who might inhale them, said Anton Beneslavsky, a firefighter who worked to extinguish the blazes near Chernobyl, according to the International Business Times.
“This is a health concern because when these unstable atoms are inhaled, people become internally exposed to radiation,” he wrote in a blog post for Greenpeace Russia…

Yucca Mountain: Serpent Swimming Westward – Indigenous Action Media

(27 APRIL 2017) The Trump administration & Congress are renewing the threat to turn sacred Yucca Mountain, located on Western Shoshone Lands near Las Vegas, Nevada, into a massive nuclear waste dump.
Yesterday, on the 31st anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce held a hearing in Washington, DC to initiate the legislative process.
Congress is considering amendments to the Nuclear Waste Policy Amendments Act that would restart  operations that began in 1982. 

If the Yucca Mountain project is allowed to proceed, it would mean transport of highly radioactive waste from throughout the country’s nuclear power plants to this site. More than 70,000 tons of spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste would be dumped inside the sacred mountain…


Yucca Mountain is located on Western Shoshone land. The NCAC has also legally challenged U.S. federal ownership of the site as a violation of the 1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley.

EDITORIAL: The Washington Post Editorial Board's Epic Fail on 'Carbon-Free' Nuclear Power - EnviroNews | The Environmental News Specialists




...Not once, but twice in its short opinion writeup, WaPo‘s editorial board flippantly refers to nuclear power as “carbon-free.” This statement could not be further from the truth. A minor investigation on the part of WaPo‘s editorial team would have quickly revealed that this statement is outright nonsense — yet the publication’s editors chose to let it fly. But why?

From a investigative reporter’s point-of-view, it would be low-hanging fruit to discover, not only is nuclear energy not carbon-free, it is on the contrary carbon-intensive.

…Thus far, WaPo has issued no official correction or retraction. It did however choose to publish a very short letter to the editor criticizing the editorial, authored by Paki Wieland from Northampton, Massachusetts. The letter, titled, Plenty of carbon used in nuclear energy, reads:

The April 2 editorial “Nuclear energy in peril” referred to nuclear energy as carbon-free. It is not carbon-free.
If we look at nuclear power in whole, from the uranium mining to the dismantling of nuclear power plants, there is an extraordinary use of energy, from the initial devastation of the environment where the uranium is mined to the costly cleanup.
The impact on the environment continues through every phase of nuclear-energy production. A deep look into the issue of nuclear power would lead to overwhelming evidence to support ending nuclear power as a source of energy.

While it is good WaPo‘s opinion editors chose to publish this dissenting viewpoint, it is far from an official correction or retraction of the original piece. It is also the opinion of the EnviroNews Board that WaPo should make a correction or retract its editorial entirely…

All Levels of Radiation Confirmed to Cause Cancer (2005) | NIRS |


BEIR VII or seventh Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation report on “Health Risks from Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation

Washington, DC July 30, 2005 | The National Academies of Science released an over 700-page report yesterday on the risks from ionizing radiation. The BEIR VII or seventh Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation report on “Health Risks from Exposure to Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation” reconfirmed the previous knowledge that there is no safe level of exposure to radiation—that even very low doses can cause cancer. Risks from low dose radiation are equal or greater than previously thought. The committee reviewed some additional ways that radiation causes damage to cells.
Among the reports conclusions are:
There is no safe level or threshold of ionizing radiation exposure.
Even exposure to background radiation causes some cancers. Additional exposures cause additional risks.
Radiation causes other health effects such as heart disease and stroke, and further study is needed to predict the doses that result in these non-cancer health effects.
It is possible that children born to parents that have been exposed to radiation could be affected by those exposures.

The “bystander effect” is an additional, newly recognized method by which radiation injures cells that were not directly hit but are in the vicinity of those that were. “Genomic instability” can be caused by exposure to low doses of radiation and according to the report “might contribute significantly to radiation cancer risk.” These new mechanisms for radiation damage were not included in the risk estimates reported by the BEIR VII report, but were recommended for further study.
The Linear-No-Threshold model (LNT) for predicting health effects from radiation (dose-response) is retained, meaning that every exposure causes some risk and that risks are generally proportional to dose. The Dose and Dose-Rate Effectiveness Factor or DDREF which had been suggested in the 1990 BEIR V report to be applied at low doses, has been reduced from 2 to 1.5. That means the projected number of health effects at low doses are greater than previously thought...

Oceanside Public Meeting on Beach Nuclear Waste Facility ~ San Onofre




Citizens Oversight sued the Coastal Commission and now we are entering settlement discussions. Although settlement discussions are required to be confidential to allow frank discussion, we want to be open to public input on the matter of where nuclear waste from San Onofre will be stored. This meeting, at the Oceanside City Council Chambers on May 4, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, will be transcribed and included in the public file for the lawsuit. Until now, we, the public, have had almost no opportunity to weigh in on this project, with only two minutes provided at the California Coastal Commission meeting in Long Beach in October, 2015. Here, we have an opportunity to stop 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste from being stored only 100 feet from the ocean and only inches over the high-tide salt water mark. Recently updated research has determined that there is a geologic fault capable of creating a 7.4 magnitude earthquake nearby. By leaving this nuclear waste so near the coastline, we provide an easy target for a boat or a drone. If an accident or an intentional act or typical corrosion causes radioactive leakage, the resulting chain reaction could cause the California coast to become radioactive and uninhabitable to humans, and to all life, for up to 250,000 years...in other words, forever. *You* can save the ocean! *You* can save life! Show up to this meeting. Speak your mind.
