It is 66 years since the disaster of the atomic bombs, when the human race pledged that would never ever repeat the same mistake. It is 25 years since the Cherbnobyl accident which has caused intolerable tragedies for children’s lives and the environment of this earth. We have had various opportunities to stop and rethink our ways but all the while the number of nuclear power plants has been continually increasing and finally the nightmare-like earthquake disaster happened. It’s very obvious which direction we should choose for our future.
In Japan this year we’ll organize the NNAF, which has been held in turn in various countries since 1993. The Venue has been changed suddenly from Thailand, the originally proposed site, after Fukushima accident. We’ll explain the reality of the Fukushima Nuclear accident to the rest of Asia. We’ll also use this opportunity to strengthen cooperation among Asian people to prevent the exportation of this nuclear technology into and from Asian countries. We’ll convey the prayers of Hiroshima victims and the experiences of anti-nuclear power campaign from Kaminoseki as well.
Let’s get together to make a nuclear free Asia a reality, and to put an end to this terrible history of the “ashes of death”.
