Take action! Keep Japan's nukes out of India!

PETITION DEADLINE: November 6, 2016
 
Japan intends to to export nuclear technology to India, a country that has not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and possesses nuclear weapons. Signing the Indo-Japan Nuclear Cooperation Agreement this month will  increase the military tensions in South Asia. It also highlights the Japan government's callous disregard of victims of Japan's ongoing nuclear power catastrophe, Fukushima, since Japan insists on spreading nuclear  technology to other countries, while continuing to deny their own victims compensation.   
 
In India, citizens who are concerned about the dangers of nuclear power have mounted large-scale protests, which have been met with brutal repression. Compensation for land acquisition, safety measures in case of accidents and evacuation plans are woefully inadequate.
