Ministers urged to learn the lessons of Japanese nuclear disaster
Activists issued the demand before the third anniversary today of the incident which has left 160,000 Japanese people refugees in their own country.
More than 15,000 people lost their lives in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake and tsunami that swept away homes along Japan’s coast.
Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament leader Kate Hudson warned a meeting in Parliament yesterday that it presents a “stark lesson” for Britain.
“Just because the UK doesn’t experience earthquakes or tsunamis doesn’t mean we’re safe from the kind of catastrophe which occurred in Japan,” she told the Morning Star before the lobby.
“The Fukushima Daiichi plant suffered three meltdowns ultimately because power was lost to the cooling systems.
“That can happen anywhere and for a multitude of reasons, from a targeted attack, to technical malfunctions, to natural disasters causing power failures and structural damage – as recent flooding in the UK has made all too clear.”
Ms Hudson pointed out that recent flooding and earthquakes were near the proposed site of the new Hinkley C reactor.
She accused government ministers of making nuclear the “foundation” of their energy policy despite the risks and “exorbitant” cost.
“Nuclear power has shown itself to be a dangerous and expensive form of energy – we should learn the lessons of Fukushima before it’s too late.”
But campaigners will continue a week of action this evening with a candle-lit vigil outside the Japanese embassy in London to show solidarity with families still suffering the effects of the disaster.
He said: “Quite a majority of Japanese people here are against restarting mothballed nuclear power plants.
“But the Abe government is trying to mix the energy source and open them up again.
“All these nuclear power plants in Japan are coming to the end of their life and any similar nuclear accident would be a complete tragedy – the end of Japan.”
