How to help Japan:
Dear MoveOn member,

The devastation in Japan is simply horrific. The death toll is rising by the hour. Tens of thousands remain missing, more than 450,000 people have been displaced, and millions lack access to food, water, electricity, and medicine.  And as rescue and relief workers struggle to operate around the clock, Japan must also contend with partial meltdowns and the escalating risk of an even worse catastrophe at several nuclear reactors.

Right now the people of Japan are in crisis, their resources are stretched thin, and they need our help. Many organizations are already on the ground providing relief, including Doctors Without Borders and the Red Cross. You can provide immediate assistance by donating to help fund the emergency response:

Doctors Without Borders is sending highly trained teams of doctors into the hardest-hit and most difficult-to-reach regions of Japan.  (Note: Doctors Without Borders is not accepting contributions “earmarked” for Japan, but rather drawing from general support to enable their important response work there.) Donate here:

The Red Cross operates 92 hospitals in Japan and has deployed 700 medical relief volunteers across the country already. Donate here:

Thanks for all you do.

A few words on the crisis in Japan:
The nuclear situation in Japan continues to deteriorate. Our thoughts are with the people of Japan as they grapple with this crisis.
Like everyone else, I couldn’t stop following the news after I first learned of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. While these things are nothing new to the region, it was obvious that this was something bigger. The Japanese response has been nothing short of amazing, and it’s awe-inspiring to see the human spirit in action to help worldwide.

But sadly, the worst was far from over.

Within hours, reports started surfacing that the nuclear facilities at Fukushima had been seriously damaged. Soon our fears were confirmed.

Greenpeace is no stranger to the issue of nuclear power. In fact, monitoring nuclear testing off the coast of Alaska was our first mission. For nearly 40 years, we’ve been educating on the dangers of nuclear power as an unacceptable risk to humanity and the environment. Obviously, we’re concerned for the people of Japan as the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disasters unfold.

Many of our members have come to us with questions and concerns about this crisis. Could we face a similar disaster in the U.S.? What’s our country’s policy on nuclear power? These are important questions, and, we’ll be working to bring you the most up-to-date information. And we’ll continue to be the voice we have been for nearly 40 years — one committed to protecting and conserving the environment and to promoting peace.

Global call: antinuclear gathering all over the world on the 20th of March!
Dear friends,

Right now, Japan is undergoing the worst nuclear catastrophe since Chernobyl.
Four reactors have partially melted down, huge amounts of radioactivity has been released, and a poisonnous cloud could could spread through Japan and even further.
The catastrophe is not over. In spite of all efforts, the cooling of the reactors cannot be completed successfully. Beside, the poisonous gas released will fall out and remain on the ground and in the water for decades, and even more.

We send a call to all antinuclear groups and all people concerned about this ongoing catastrophe to organize gatherings this Sunday, the 20th of March.

To express our solidarity with the Japanese people
and
To spread the word : nuclear power must be phased out, all over the world !

Some gatherings are already organized in France and Spain.

You can register your gathering here :

http://groupes.sortirdunucleaire.org/alerte-japon/actions.php

We will display all the gatherings on Sortir du nucléaire’s website.

We have enough with living with the permanent threat of nuclear power ! On Sunday let’s make our voices heard at last !

Best regards,

Charlotte

Japan Sends Soldiers on Emergency Mission at Crippled Reactor:

http://www.truth-out.org/news-brief-japan-sends-soldiers-emergency-mission-crippled-reactor68550

The Japanese government sent soldiers on a dangerous emergency mission to reduce radiation leaks at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Thursday, The Washington Post reports. After police failed to keep the reactor cool with water cannons used for riot control, soldiers arrived and dumped 30 tons of water from fire hoses and aircraft on the reactor that was damaged by an earthquake and tsunami earlier this week. The government took these emergency measures after US officials told Americans to stay at least 50 miles away from the plant to avoid radiation. The announcement raised doubts in the Japanese assessment of the situation as the government there is allowing people to be much closer to the plant.
