1.11.2013 Rally Friday 3pm at Japanese Consulate – Be There to Oppose LDP/Abe Plan for New Nuclear Plants
from Steve Zeltzer: No Nukes Action Committee will have a rally and speak-out Friday January 11, 2013 at the Japanese Consulate, 50 Fremont Street, San Francisco, at 3 pm, to protest Japan’s LDP/Abe government’s push for the building of more nuclear plants, and the government & industry media campaign that Fukushima can be “decontaminated” and Japan can “overcome” nuclear radiation.
The reality in Japan is far different. See http://www.wtop.com/46/3176017/Md-woman-sees-long-term-effects-of-radiation-in-Fukushima.
No Nukes calls for an immediate halt to the burning of radiated rubble in prefectures around the country, an end to the export of Japanese nuclear technology, and for payment of adequate compensation to all who have had to evacuate the Fukushima area.
An update will be given on the ongoing harassment of anti-nuclear activists in Japan including the recent arrest of Professor Masaki Shimoji in Osaka. Professor Shimoji was arrested as a result of his public opposition to the burning of nuclear rubble in Osaka. While he has been released, other anti-nuclear activists remain in jail for seeking to educate the public about the dangers of radiation, particularly the burning of nuclear debris.
We call on all opponents of nuclear power and nuclear weapons and those fighting for democratic rights to join us in speaking out against the actions of the LDP/Abe government.
No Nukes Action Committee holds a speak-out and rally at 3pm on the 11th of every month at the Japanese Consulate, 50 Fremont Street, SF., in solidarity with the anti-nuclear movement in Japan. Please contact our committee for more information. If your organization is interested in endorsing this action, please let us know. firstname.lastname@example.org
