Dear friends across Japan,

*Right now, the government is failing to provide evacuation assistance to hundreds of vulnerable children* still trapped in highly contaminated Fukushima City. But, *a group of brave mothers have taken to the streets, demanding their leaders get the children out * of the disaster zone. In 2 days the government will hold an emergency meeting on the issue -- *let's support the Fukushima children:*

*Right now, the government is failing to provide evacuation assistance to hundreds of vulnerable children* still trapped in highly contaminated Fukushima City. But a group of brave mothers have taken to the streets, demanding their leaders get the children out of the disaster zone -- *together we can help them win.*

*Urgent funding is needed to help relocate families*, but the government has turned a deaf ear and insists that all is safe. With things growing more desperate, local mothers and hundreds of supporters have started a sit-in in Tokyo to demand government help, and are calling on people across Japan to *stand with them and put pressure on Prime Minister Noda.*

The government is feeling the heat and will hold an emergency meeting in 48 hours. *Let’s give the Fukushima mothers our support from every corner of Japan*, channelled into one clear ask for Prime Minister Noda: protect children and vulnerable people, and support their evacuation from Fukushima City. *Sign the urgent petition below and forward this email widely* -- it will be delivered directly to the Prime Minister's office when we reach 20.000 signatures.


Right now our country has a clear choice. We can embrace family values, and rebuild our nation to give all our children a future, or we can continue to ignore those who are facing hardship and neglect. Fukushima's families don’t have a moment to lose -- *every day exposed to radiation massively increases the chances of serious health problems. *

We know that the grueling effects of long-term radiation-exposure passes through generations, impacting the health of not only today’s children, but their children’s children. In the aftermath of Chernobyl, the Soviet Union evacuated people from land which had considerably less radiation than some of the areas in question in Japan. *The children of Fukushima City, trapped in a radioactive environment, will not be able to extricate themselves* from this severe threat to their health without government support for voluntary evacuation. Yet the government won’t trigger evacuation until contamination in an area reaches a level that is four times greater than the threshold the Soviets set for mandatory evacuation after Chernobyl, 25 years ago.

*If tens of thousands of Japanese citizens raise the alarm now, we could tip the balance* and bring hope to hundreds of families. Together let’s build a giant public outcry to show Prime Minister Noda that our country's honour is at stake and urge him to stand up and save lives. *The government meeting is in 2 days -- sign now then forward this email to everyone.*


Japan was rocked on March 11th and we’re still coming to terms with the scale of the destruction. But out of the devastation comes a chance to rebuild -- our country is united more than ever, people are ready to act to make things better for all Japanese citizens. Right now, we can begin to lay the foundation for a healthy future for Japan's children and children's children.

With hope,

Luis, Dalia, Iain, Antonia, Carol, Emma, Ricken, Diego and the rest of Avaaz team.
