On March 11, 2011 our beautiful native country Japan experienced an unprecedented large earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident.
Even now, after twelve years from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, approximate 34,000 people have not returned yet to their home town. After the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, many people in Japan felt it is our responsibility to make the world aware of the dangers of nuclear power and to lead the world in anti-nuclear power awareness so as not to waste the inconceivable losses we suffered.
Even after twelve years have passed, it's still obvious that the situation has not changed at all we can see the government and country are depending on nuclear power. They say that it's safe for people, but the government, politicians, and related companies are lying. The disaster should have brought us all to an awareness of the safety of nuclear power, but the reality is things are becoming worse and the situation is being hidden from the public. Those with vested interests in nuclear powers plants and the power structure surrounding them point to energy security and the country's economy. What is evident in the Fukushima disaster is the hoax perpetrated by nuclear related industry, academia and the government in deceiving the people about its safety. The news media has concealed the radioactive damage and the massive release of radioactivity that is becoming increasingly serious. Then the news of them may be erased by the power of politics.
Many nuclear power plant experts already have issued statements that our primary nuclear power policy was the wrong, since we had enough electricity even without nuclear power, nuclear power is not safe, the cost is highest as compared with other power generation options, and there is extensive damage that eliminates population centers and agricultural land use if an accident happens only once. Many people agreed, but to oppose the nuclear power is still taboo. Even now this subject is considered as taboo in Japan and the U.S. The burden to the later generations including the issue of nuclear waste is not being dealt with responsibly. It is time for all of us to recognize our duty as social beings to protect the life and health of the children we love, and to leave hope for their future.
The whole world has been manipulated by the rhetoric of "peaceful use of nuclear energy." Now is the time to pull out from this lie and to use art to bring awareness of the devil of nuclear power.
