Jan Vande Putte -Greenpeace radiation safety advisor, speaks at a Greenpeace press conference to announce their results of marine sampling for radiation contamination, in Tokyo, Japan, on Thursday 26th May 2011. Greenpeace announced detailed results from its marine radiation monitoring activities along the Fukushima coast, which showed that radiation is accumulating in sea life, particularly in seaweed with some samples showing concentrations 50 times higher than official limits. Greenpeace issued a list of demands to the Japanese government, calling on it to urgently conduct comprehensive radiation monitoring along the Fukushima coast, to inform and protect the health and livelihoods of citizens, and to investigate and halt discharges of contaminated water from the crisis -stricken Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant.
