ICCPR Shadow Report: Fukushima Daiichi Disaster Response

Suggested Urgent Issue for the U.S. re Fukushima Radiation

The U.S. Government has failed to address the human rights, particularly the inherent right to life, of communities living in the direct path of a jet stream coming from three Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan that melted down following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. An estimated 14,000 initial excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster, with children, infants, and others with weakened immune systems disproportionately affected.
