WE WANT JUSTICE FOR FUKUSHIMA'S IRRADIATED FIRST RESPONDERS FROM USS RONALD REAGAN & OTHERS

To be delivered to Tokyo Electric Power, the government of Japan, and the government of the United States

Petition Statement

We sign to support the crewmembers of the USS Ronald Reagan and other "first responders" now sick from radiation poisoning after rushing to help Japan's earthquake/tsunami victims in March, 2011.

Then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan says "the first meltdown occurred 5 hours after the earthquake." But Tokyo Electric kept secret Fukushima's dangerous levels of radiation, which irradiated these heroes during their courageous humanitarian service.

We support them and their federal lawsuit and demand that Tepco:

1. Admit responsibility for its negligence at Fukushima;
2. Establish funds sufficient to compensate these sailors and to monitor their health;
3. Acknowledge the right of the US Courts to mediate and oversee these claims.
There are currently 4,336 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Scores of sailors from the USS Ronald Reagan and other US ships who responded with humanitarian aid for victims of the 3/11/2011 earthquake and tsunami were irradiated by Fukushima. They are now suffering radiation-related health effects. We ask that Tokyo Electric Power compensate them, and that the governments of Japan and the United States help in this process.
