Following the March Fukushima, Japan, disaster, the September Marcoule, France, accident, the recent radioactivity cloud over central Europe, and news of pending military action in Iran – a renewed call in support of Safecast, a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements to empower people with data about their environments. None of the governments involved is to be trusted in this matter.
Jerusalem, November 22 – Human Rights Alert (NGO), renewed the call in support of in support of Safecast – a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements to empower people with data about their environments. [i]
The call came in the wake of:
- The current wave of radioactive iodine over Europe; [ii]

- The March 2011 Fukushima, Japan nuclear disaster, the scope of which is yet to unfold, and [iv]

“None of the governments involved is to be trusted to provide the People truthful information in case of nuclear accidents,” says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert.
Inexpensive radiation monitors are readily available today, and if consistently used by volunteers to report radiation levels in their environments, would provide an important source of information, more reliable than government-originated news.
The People’s access to valid and reliable information in an age where media are largely controlled by the government-corporate complex, is one of the topics to be discussed in the planned September 2012 Celebration in Jerusalem-AlQuds.
Human rights, freedom of the press, and access to information are among subjects to be discussed in:
Jerusalem Al-Quds 2012
