月例11日5月集会事後報告 5/11 Rally IWJ video report

第22回月例5月集会、参加の皆さん、ありがとうございました。約30人ほどが参加し、初めて今回はジャステイン.ハーマン.プラザまで行進しました。サンフランシスコも五月晴れでした。

折しもこの日は[母の日」でしたので、福島のお母さん達の苦難を思い、事故後精一杯子供達のためにベストを尽くしているたくさんのお母さん達を、讃えました。

未だ13万人を超える人達が避難生活をしています。避難県民を対象にしたアンケート結果では事故後約半分に近い家族世帯が2カ所以上(3、4、5カ所もある)に別れて住んでいます。

4月26日には川内村の一部の避難指示が解除され3ヶ月までの滞在が許可されましたが、申請したのは一割に過ぎず、戻った人の中には隣近所に誰もいないから寂しいと言う人がいました。結局、村とか共同体は破壊されてしまって、形だけの汚染された家が残っているのですね。

このマンメイドの福島事故に果たして終わりがあるのでしょうか?

安倍政権は、[臭いものにはふた」で、事故のネガテイブな部分を隠し、これから伸びて行く(?)日本への投資を世界に誘っています。経済的に世界と肩を並べて行く為には原発エネルギーが必要だと、懲りずにうそぶいているのです。

この流れを変えなければいけません。わたしたちの声が、存在が、この流れを変えて行くのです。

諦めず、闘いましょう。再稼動は許せません。原発はみな廃炉にしましょう。

    Last Sunday, May 11th, we had a fantastic rally once again! Each month, the group that presents from different walks of life is comprised of interesting, vibrant souls of varying strengths and talents, dedicated to the same core causes. The first of these is toward the propagation of light and information concerning the current status of the Fukushima incident, and its effects on the local populations. Based on the reports and observations presented — not just among the group, but in multi-varied media and personal accounts — the problems of Fukushima, particularly its radioactive effects on the local populations, continues to loom large. Various health problems and misuse of community citizens toward the cleanup are understated, and seemingly ignored, nuances of the larger problem. This group seeks to inform others, to draw membership, and to make positive affectations toward the spreading of information relevant to Fukushima.

    The second core cause of the group is, given the situation and context of Fukushima’s nuclear reactor incidents, to urge the complete and uncompromising closing of all nuclear power plants around the world. Given the precarious process at large during the generation of nuclear power — particularly in light of the potential of natural disasters and other unforeseen circumstances which might affect power plants — can nuclear power really be considered safe? Then, of course, the difficult problem of how to dispose of nuclear waste has been daunting — no clear solutions exist which would treat the harm of such waste completely, Not to mention, the side effects of the nuclear reactor processes, waste, etc. on local communities.

    The third core cause, and perhaps more important, or at least as much, as the first two causes, is the complete and uncompromising cessation of the development, use, testing, etc. of nuclear weapons. It is abominable that mankind, led by certain spiritual entities and ideals, have been able to devise such horrific devices. Nightmarish in the extreme. The vibrant group that presents every 11th of each month, understand the terrible direction, and catastrophic potential of a nuclear armed world, and the threat to our Mother Earth that such devices, in just simply existing, present. All government actors, at all levels, in all nations who support the persistence of such weapons , should be removed, replaced, supplanted by better, wiser souls. The U.S. — the most heavily armed, militaristic nation in the history of mankind bears particular responsibility for the proliferation of nuclear weapons. As the founder of the atom bomb, and the only nation in the history of the earth to explode, not one, but two, atomic weapons over the lands of a sovereign nation (Japan), the U.S. may never be able to wipe away the shame, the guilt, the awfulness of that activity. What have peaceful, freedom-minded, pleasure-seeking souls have to do with the awful and destructive minds engaged in the manifestation of such horror? Nothing.

    A fourth cause of the group has to do with another aspect of the promulgation of light, truth, and information concerning the situation in Fukushima, and generally speaking, the circumstances of government cover up. And the principle at issue is universal. When governments do, or allow, terrible things or catastrophic failures, should they be able to cover up their actions? Should even a single guilty, through deception, trickery, chicanery, and such, avoid the sharp teeth of justice? World government have seemed to disregard justice when it comes to the actions of its government actors, or those with whom it colludes or allows, when those actions bring harm and unwanted effects that are destructive or damaging. Japan, probably taking the U.S.’s lead in such matters, passed a Secrecy law that seeks to prohibit the light-filled, information-disseminating activities of people who are attempting to either learn or inform others about the effects of the disaster. The monthly group seeks to disavow the attempts of cover-up and secrecy by the government. Really, this should be the case with all governments. Aren’t governments designed, by intention, to be servile, responsible, and responsive to the public? Nor should Japan, or any nation, mislead its people with deliberate false statements about their circumstances pertaining to health, safety, or really, anything, for that matter. Truth is truth. Light is light.

    A fifth cause of the group has been to urge the cessation of the misuse of local populations. It has been reported the homeless, low-wage, or other usually (considered) unimportant citizens of the local Fukushima related areas have been engaged in clean-up with little protective gear against the radiation. It’s difficult to understand the mindsets of nations who treat their citizenry in such a way.

    Led, once again, by the heroic voice and vibrant personality of Chizu causing the usual chants to reverberate across the Consulate building, then, in a march to Hermann plaza, across the facades of buildings and streets everywhere, the rally presented, in stereo, the urge to “Shut down all Nukes!,” and “Fukushima, never again!” Chizu has such a sweet way and pleasant personality, but, also, a powerful affectation, in leading these events, in being the sort of event host that is a considerable force against the nuclear industry.

    We sang a couple songs presented by Makiko. She has a nice voice, too. May 5th, in Japan, was children’s day. And we sang two songs that carried, into the energies above and beyond our realms, our affectations and causes to be opened up within, and poured out upon the industries, governments, and people related to the Fukushima disaster, and nuclear industries, around the world. Somebody read a moving poem, comprised in prose, which, seemingly poetically, relayed the effects of nuclear use gone wrong.

    Steve gave another recap of his personal observations in Japan concerning the lingering effects. Some of these were chilling and disturbing. Take, for instance, the report that even in some, supposedly, largely, unaffected areas, the radiation levels were twice what they should be, That’s cause for concern. Then, he mentioned, the ongoing effects of secrecy laws which seek to prohibit even the dissemination of pamphlets about the Fukushima disaster. Eloquent, concise, informative, Steve’s report was right on par with his usual delivery.

    Paul spoke briefly again, too. He provided the microphone equipment which carried the voices of the group. He advised the model in certain German towns which local governments, or maybe the national government, pay homeowners who use solar power a fee for providing energy to “the grid” via their solar apparatus and energy production. Germany is certainly a resilient nation. It is a world leader in the renewable energy industry and, largely due to forward, far-seeing mindsets and ideology, has made itself a strong nation. It is good to see the true roots of a cultured, intelligent nation, once having divested from awful periods of war and conflict, to embrace all the things that make the nation great. Along with China, a powerful nation for its own culture and attributes, these comprise the world leaders in renewable energy. China is number one in renewable energy investment in the world. Or, at least in this seeming reality. Paul’s speech made some sense, though. Why not allow homeowners around the world easily manifest renewable, Green, energy, then through some system provide the benefits of this to each other and society as a whole?

    Yoko made noise, too. Literally. During the march, sending out her own affectation to bring the awfulness of nuclear industries to an end, she banged on a pan — which makes me wonder. Should those noises be the terrible clanging, banging, and other cacophony that those destructive souls and people hear inside their minds when they persist in nuclear badness? Should those sounds, should the sounds of Chizu’s, and the Group’s, chanting, be amplified in some way to drive wickedness from the midst of the planet? Overwhelmingly, most people on the planet, if our needs met, cared for, allowed to express in true freedom and pleasure, are peaceful beings. But, since the wicked, the destructive, the hateful minded, the minds and souls of warfare and violence have been given prevalence in the past, the state of the world has been pushed to the brink of catastrophic decline. The nuclear industry, particularly weapons industries, have been a key factor. The time is long due for the expiration of such souls. I will hope to think of the group’s chants, of Chizu’s shrill call, of Yoko’s banging pan, magnified, amplified exponentially, as energy in thought, intention, and manifestation for driving away the wicked. We marched, we chanted, we commanded the cessation of the use of all nuclear weapons and harmful affectations.

    We heard from Umi. She wrote a great letter last month. The Consulate had stopped taking such letters. Since it is the very obligation of the Consulate to engage with, and hear the concerns of, and, if relevant, to receive the communications of concerned citizenry in local areas events and situations in Japan, we are confused at the refusal to take these letters. Nevertheless, Umi wrote a great letter last month, and told us, during this latest rally, her viewpoint on how we contemplate the harm of Fukushima and radiation. She’s leaving for a visit to Japan, and we wish her the best. She said, chiefly among other things, that we might consider how we understand or talk about the harm of Fukushima. Do we need to describe its negative effects mainly in the ideas of cancer. I think Umi was suggesting we look at other aspects of harm, other effects of the situation, more closely, as well as the social aspects of the disaster.

    Well, that’s the basic recap of another great rally. Thanks, again, for all who attended.
