From Fukushima to the World
This booklet is a message to people all around the world from us, the people of Japan, who were aicted by and who continue to bear the brunt of the damage caused by the large-scale nuclear disaster at the Tokyo Electric Power Company
(TEPCO) operated Fukushima Daiichi (Number One) Nuclear Power Plant, directly caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11, 2011.
In this booklet, 10 lessons have been extracted that must be learned from the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and also presented the international laws and international standards that are at our disposal. None of these are memories of the past. e disaster in Fukushima, four years after the accident, is still very much ongoing, with the situation continuing to change. Rather than a publication for learning about events that happened in the past, this booklet provides guidelines for dealing with issues in the present, and as such it should be used to prevent disasters that could easily happen in the future.
The booklet aims to translate this booklet into as many languages as possible, and to have it read throughout countries that have nuclear plants or in countries where there are plans afoot to build nuclear plants. The booklet has, out of the plethora of issues, chosen to focus particularly on problems faced by local communities. The booklet does not gone into deep detail regarding governmental and political challenges, problems related to nuclear power technology nor the medical domain.
