Dear Echonetdaily  reader, if you haven’t seen it already, I urge you to see this eight-and-a-half-minute video report from Australia’s ABC TV network: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2012/s3532725.htm.

Fukushima Reactor No 4 is in danger of collapse, thereby creating a fuel-rod fire releasing an enormous amount of deadly radioactive isotopes into the atmosphere.

Japan is not coping and international action is needed. Only the full weight of the global civic organisation Avaaz can bring action from world leaders. You can help call on Avaaz to get behind this emergency.

Please sign at: http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Make_Fukushima_Reactor_Safe_From_Massive_Radiation_Release/?tta.

Every single person who joins strengthens our call for action. Please take a minute to share this message  with everyone you know.

Let’s make change together.
