STOP!浜岡の戸倉さんから

以下情報です。

★東北被災地の水産加工品がWFP(世界食料計画)の学校給食プログラムに!
放射性物質が含まれいる(または含まれている可能性のある)、サバ・イワシ・サンマの缶詰が、
カンボジア、スリランカ、ガーナ、コンゴ、セネガルの子どもたちに、日本の支援で提供されます。

このODA案件は、放射性物質の基準値をクリアしているかどうかが問題なのではありません。
「放射能汚染されている(または可能性のある)日本で売れない物」を支援と称して途上国の子どもに送ることに、憤りを憶えます。
また日本人として非常に恥ずかしいです。

ご意見のある方はぜひお伝え下さい。

UN Food Program To Buy Contaminated Food, Send To School Lunch Programs
http://www.simplyinfo.org/?p=5586
March 31st, 2012 |


This plan has been bouncing around Japan’s government for months. They think it would be a good idea to send canned fish caught in Tohoku region (the area near Fukushima Daiichi) as food aid.
Various groups in Japan have been fighting the government to stop this from happening. The government has ignored the pleas from people to not do this and will proceed with sending this fish as food aid.

Why is this a problem? The fish in the region is largely all showing up as contaminated to varying extents, some incredibly high. Most of this was landed and processed last year under the 500 bq/kg upper limit of contamination. So what is in those cans is very likely contaminated and to a considerable level.

The UN World Food Program has agreed to purchase 1 billion yen worth of seafood from the region to be used in school lunch programs in developing countries like Cambodia.
“The fish cans will go to Cambodia and 4 other countries and will be used in school lunches to feed school children.”

The Japanese government says they will only send fish that is “without any worry of safety”. Of course that means below the maximum contamination levels. The government claims they are doing this to “dispel baseless rumors” about food contamination in Japan. Anyone who has been closely following the food contamination problems in Japan knows how Orwellian that statement is.

Children in Tokyo were showing up with radioactive cesium in their urine in October 2011, likely caused by their diet. Consuming contaminated foods creates an internal radiation exposure that is far worse than external exposures. Sending it to another country to expose their children?

EX-SKF has all the sordid details and contact information for the groups involved with the food aid distribution if you would like to voice a complaint.
