We, participants of the 1st Thematic World Social Forum against civil and military nuclear, conducted in Tokyo and Fukushima from March, 23 to 28, 2016, from more than 10 countries from 3 continents, call for the creation of a global network in support of intercom, mutual support and the launch of joint actions for a world without civil and military nuclear.
This call, signed also by all those who support it, is aimed at the citizens of all countries worldwide committed, on an individual basis or within an organization, for a world without nuclear.
To build this network, we will start by providing a list of exchanges, by Internet, enabling us to exceed our isolation, each struggling in her/his country against a nuclear power which is globalized. This tool will allow us to build common actions, resistors, denunciations and information broadcasts to build a world free from nuclear.
We will exchange on legal, security, health, education and communication issues, related to the use of nuclear energy for civil and military purposes. We will do this as part of major themes such as: export and import equipment, fuel for civil and military purposes, from mine to waste, and nuclear technology; myths and propaganda with which nuclear power is required, including through the lobbies and the media; testimonies of victims and refugees from nuclear power, but also experts, doctors, engineers and others allowing us to share information, studies and analyses; the successes of our struggles that allowed to block agreements, to adopt or to change laws, to close nuclear plants, to win lawsuits… so they can be shown as example to other ongoing struggles; alternatives on the consumption and the production of energy; the nuclear workers, including the system of subcontracting and temporary work which seriously violates the health and safety of workers.
We invite all people, groups and organizations involved in the fight for a world without nuclear to subscribe to this list, to sign this call and to transmit it widely in their networks.
We call them also, in response to the message of solidarity received from the organizations of Quebec and Canada fighting against nuclear power to become involved in the construction of our network, taking part in the 2nd Thematic World Social Forum against civil and military nuclear, which will be held on the occasion of the World Social Forum of Montreal (Canada), from August 8 to 14, 2016.
A 3rd Thematic World Social Forum against civil and military nuclear may be held in Europe on the occasion of the 31st anniversary of the beginning of the Chernobyl disaster.
