International

Beyond Nuclear, while U.S. based, recognizes that the issue of nuclear power, particularly in relation to climate change and reactor expansion, has become an international issue. Multi-national corporations, often with foreign ownership, have taken over every facet of the nuclear fuel chain, from uranium mining to waste disposition. Beyond Nuclear is currently engaged in supportive efforts in a number of different countries.

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.

Commemorating the Fermi 1 meltdown, 50 years later

John G. Fuller's iconic 1975 book "We Almost Lost Detroit" helped open many eyes to the dangers of nuclear powerNext Wednesday, Beyond Nuclear is joining with grassroots environmental allies in southeast Michigan to mark the 50th anniversary of the Oct. 5, 1966 partial meltdown of the infamous Fermi Unit 1 plutonium breeder reactor located on the shore of Lake Erie.

The Fermi nuclear power plant is located just eight miles from Amherstburg, Ontario across the Canadian border.

In the form of our "Freeze Our Fukushimas" and "Got KI?" campaigns, the lessons that should have been learned from this close call with catastrophe, that endangered the Great Lakes, and countless numbers of people downwind and downstream, will be applied to resisting ongoing operations at Fermi 2 (a Fukushima Daiichi twin design), as well as seeking to block the proposed new Fermi 3 reactor.  More
