Urgent Action Alert! SOS from Kaminoseki!

October 25, 2010

As Japan hosts COP10 on Convention on Biological Diversity in Nagoya, trying to appeal its leadership in environmental conservation, its own biodiversity is under assault.

The marine ecosystem around Kaminoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, which is part of the Seto Island Sea National Park, is considered to be one of the most important biodiversity hotspots in Japan. This is where the Chugoku Electric Power is planing to build a new nuclear power plant, and now it is attempting to forcefully go head with its construction in spite of a long-running resistance from the local residents and international joint statement (at the bottom of the page) against its action.

Watch the press conference held at COP10, see the news paper ad published in the International Gerald Tribune, and please help spread the word!

If you are attending COP10, please show your support by joining a rally to be held at the front gate of the COP10 Conference Hall on Oct. 26, 8:30-9:30!
