The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, in March 2011, have had dramatic impact around the world.
Civil society organizations have come together to organize a Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World in Yokohama, Japan on January 14-15, 2012.
This conference will create a venue for people from all around the world to gather in Japan and respond to the reality of Fukushima. At the same time, we will bring together the voices of people who suffer from radiation exposure all around the world, whether by nuclear power or nuclear weapons – in other words, Global Hibakusha – and learn from each other’s experiences, thus illustrating the human and environmental consequences of the nuclear chain. Messages of support have arrived from around the globe and more than 10,000 participants are expected to attend.
