Dangerous Energy

Click here to save the Nuclear Liability Act
It’s close to a year, but many who left Fukushima, Japan, after the nuclear disaster and high radiation levels, can’t go home.
A year since Fukushima and we still have not learnt our lesson. Our government is still keen on nuclear energy. Now they even want to dilute a clause in the Nuclear Liability Act, which holds suppliers of nuclear technology responsible in case of a nuclear accident.
The rules to dilute this Act, could be presented in the upcoming session of Parliament.[1] Our government is succumbing to foreign pressure and compromising on our safety. Stop them before they expose our lives to the risk of a nuclear accident.
Listen to the stories of the survivors of the nuclear accident in Fukushima and then ask the heads of political parties to stop the dilution of the Nuclear Liability Act.
If the government succeeds, the foreign nuclear suppliers will get away by paying a small compensation in the case of a nuclear accident. The bulk of the cost will be borne by us - the Indian tax payer.
Pressure from lakhs of people and the opposition parties made the government pass a strong supplier liability clause.[2] We need to do this again.
Thanks a billion!
