Chernobyl 30 year anniversary

Today five million people in the Ukraine, Russia and Belarus live in areas contaminated by Chernobyl’s radioactive fallout.

Every day these survivors must make decisions on how to reduce or limit their exposure to radiation. Shopping, cooking, eating, working outside or heating their homes are daily choices that can put their families at risk.

They are being abandoned by their governments who are not taking adequate care of their citizens. Their governments scramble to cut protection programs that ensure needed monitoring, health treatments and uncontaminated food. This is so they can save money.

Worse still, these same governments want to spend billions on extremely risky nuclear energy while ignoring their responsibility to support those who still live in the shadow of Chernobyl’s radioactive legacy.   

It is unjust to cut protection programs for Chernobyl survivors.

And it’s madness to spend more money on nuclear power when safe and clean renewable energy is affordable and ready to empower communities.  
Please stand in solidarity with Chernobyl survivors.
