Duisburg, 2013, January 25th
After the Fukushima disaster and big protests of some million people, Japanese nuclear power plants have been shut down. Now the Japanese Government has decided to reactivate these nuclear power plants and to build some new ones.
Without regard on human health and the environment nuclear Fukushima waste has been burned in an incinerator in Osaka, some protesting anti-nuclear activists have been arrested by the police.
We know that fishes from the sea near Fukushima have a nuclear radiation of 2500 times over the allowed limit.
We know, that over 7 Million people have signed the MANIFESTO TO COMMEMORATE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER AND TO DEMAND THE END OF USING NUCLEAR POWER
We, the voters initiative for the candidates of federal parliament election Jürgen Blumer and Klaus Wallenstein in Duisburg and Niederrhein region (MLPD – open list), demand:
Immediate release all the arrested anti-nuclear-activists in Osaka, among of them Professor Masaki Shimoji, from remand!
End of using nuclear power at once and worldwide!
Internationalist and solidarity greetings from Duisburg and from Niederrhein region!

we wish you a powerful rally on 16 July and full success in your struggle against the re-operation of the nuclear reactors in Japan and for their complete shutdown!
The Environmental Counsel is a union of environmental organizations, citizens' initiatives, workers, scientists, organizations of women, of the youth, of international solidarity, of environmental struggle and of genuine socialism. Together with German organizations also environmental organizations from Latin America are collaborating. At the last Environmental Counsel we were happy about numerous international participants from four continents! Your struggle is our struggle! The 2 nd international Environmental Counsel in October 2011 set a signal that we have to unite internationally and get organized! The participation of Hidefumi Sakoda from AWC Japan was a great and inspiring motivation for us.

580 participants met in Gelsenkirchen/Germany for the 2nd international Environmental Counsel on 8 and 9 October 2011. Among them were international participants from Brazil, Chile, Japan, the Netherlands, Peru, Switzerland, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine and the USA. In two plenary discussions, 10 forums and 14 workshops we discussed:
Humanity is standing at a crossroad: The foundations of life and the future of the present and future generations are directly called into question. The serious possibility is developing that humankind cannot survive on this planet. This dramatic situation is confronting the international environmental movement with the challenge to develop a new quality of worldwide, enduring and reliable cooperation.
Essential factors, in close interaction, for the development to a global environmental catastrophe are:
- the transition into a global climate catastrophe through the emission of greenhouse gases,
- this year’s development of the biggest ozone hole up to now in the northern hemisphere,
- the radioactive contamination of the earth, which was intensified enormously by the nuclear catastrophe in Fukushima,
- the destruction the oceans’ biosphere, the rain forests, the diversity of flora and fauna undermine the foundations of food production,
- the pollution of the environment by electric smog,
- the merciless overexploitation of the resources, for instance fracking and biofuel,
- new risky technologies like CCS and genetic engineering, which are developed as a part of strategies for greenwashing and have devastating consequences,
- senseless large-scale projects like Stuttgart 21 or the extension of big airports.
