We call upon the Director General of the IAEA Yukiya Amano San to put together a dedicated international task force to assist the Japanese Government and TEPCO in solving the Fukushima crisis as quickly as possible.
Why is this important?
The continuous spread of radiation from the destroyed nuclear plants at Fukushima will not only affect those who live locally, but also many countries with coastlines on the Pacific Ocean and to a lesser degree the whole world. Therefore it is not just in the interests of the Japanese Government and TEPCO to solve the crisis, but the whole international community.
On March 11th 2011 a tsunami knocked out the generators of the cooling systems of the Daiichi Nuclear power plant, resulting in explosions and three meltdowns of the reactor cores.
