    What a wonderful rally we had today. It was nice to see so many people who showed up to mark the 3 year anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster and problems related thereto. Chizu, and the usual others, did a remarkable job organizing the rally, filming it, presenting updated information about the circumstances in Japan, as well as providing an account of the receptivity of the Japanese Consulate to the latest letter and issues. There are so many inviting, intriguing, and just plain awesome things about the great nation of Japan. Not the least of which is her amazing, resilient people. I was disappointed to learn that the Consulate was instructed not to meet with Chizu and/or receive her letter in person, though. They actually received the letter previously, which I thought was at least fairly respectful. I would expect a better response than this.
    Chizu’s exceptional efforts, and the efforts of supporting crew, have been instrumental in bringing, and keeping, this issue in light and attention.

    This month’s letter was excellent, like ones that came prior. Essentially, its message was, in terms of “regulating” or otherwise trying to better administrate the activities of nuclear energy production stations — as governments claim to hope to improve — how does one plan for, administer toward, or work into the functioning of plants, concerning the potential for natural disasters, fault lines, and other geological effects? In other words, some things you just can’t plan for — which was a simple, obvious conclusion of the Fukushima disaster. And when you can’t plan for Mother Earth’s shifting or other cleansings across her surface, how can any nation expect to administer nuclear energy production, at least the dangerous process commonly understood as such? This was poignantly written, and an excellent example of one of the key points at hand.

    People from various walks of life, and different organizations, presented. Among these, Occupy San Francisco, No Nukes Action Committee, and at least one poetry contingent. There were some poems — each one highlighting an important aspect or idea, or more, about the disaster. One suggested the effects of carcinogens in the air, and its effects. Another piece of prose pointed out specifics of the disaster. Everybody who spoke pointed out various important ideas — and not the kinds of ideas or information you’d readily realize. Each of these speakers, in that regard, shined and inspired.

    The Die-in was highly symbolic and important. In outlined chalk lines drawn around each of us, it suggested, quite explicitly, the effects not only of the Fukushima disaster on portions of the population, but on the potential of danger for nuclear harm to future lives. Essentially, without better care or technologies, nuclear power as we understand it and have been developing it can lead to other “die-ins.” Of the very real variety. That’s why it’s so important to “shut down all nukes,” starting, naturally, with all weapons, and nuclear power plants as well.

    I was fairly glad to see that various news agencies covered this rally — which suggests that parts of media — mainstream or otherwise — are interested and paying attention to these important messages. That these outlets are recognizing the need for a genuine dialogue to hear, vet, and make important conclusions regarding the development and use of nuclear power. We feel confident that when all facts come to light, within the context of basic logic, say, the inability to prevent certain natural disasters, people and governments will regard nuclear power differently. Whatever media are remaining seem to be picking up on this. Too, it was pointed out that other nations have taken huge steps, and are now world leaders in various regards, concerning renewable, sustainable energy sources. In employing many innovative approaches to living and the incorporation of cutting edge ideas and technology toward her people, Germany has been an amazing, and shining, example on that front — why is it this nation is so far ahead, ideologically speaking, of most of the world regarding such things as Green energy, environmental care, and quality of life? China, too, had the world’s largest investment in green energy, with substantial development in the Arab world, too.

    We had a march to Union Square. There, we had a moment of silence, and offered silent prayers and intentions for the healing of Japan and those harmed by the disaster, as well as for the earth herself. We expect those intentions to be honored and for healing and goodness to come to light, while the effects of this disaster are remedied completely — with, maybe, some help from above.

    We heard a nice, sad song. Tears into the Ocean. And it made me think of just how many people cried in Japan for some reason or other when this incident happened. How many more tears can we expect?

    Overall, a powerful, practical, and symbolic remembrance on the three year anniversary of the Fukushima disaster. Our efforts, our intentions for healing we stream upward and toward the people of Japan in the expectation that things are getting much better. I’m thankful to Chizu, Steve Zeltzer (who is in Japan), the film crew, and marchers/chanters for the usual good work in organization and support.

    Chizu and the No Nukes Action Committee –

    Thank you so much for your work organizing and being the focal point of the Fukushima rally yesterday — as you’ve been doing for years now. You have an organized, graceful, and professional way of apprising the group of the central issues and latest developments — those happening in Japan, and here in the U.S., which really keeps the group engaged, interested, and wanting to learn more. The rally galvanizes people here who are likeminded in their intention for the recovery and restoration of the Japanese people, as well as the complete end of all nuclear harms. And for that, you seem to have good leadership.

    Chizu, particularly, in her graceful, beautiful way — very simply, basically, and accurately seems to report the latest developments while providing historical context of the situation. She goes into good detail and elaborates on the events to provide pretty good perspective. Stephen does a good job, too — articulating various nuances and perspectives related to the Fukushima problems.

    I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts. I’ve been coming since January and am very impressed. Each speaker or reader has shined in various ways with what they’ve read or shared with the group. Each, in this capacity — caring for the Japanese people, desiring an end to destructive fossil fuels — has expressed beautifully. I’ve asked for the care, providence, and blessing of each who’ve attended according to the honest intentions and efforts of their souls.

    Best wishes,

      Hi Jason,

      I think we did a very excited rally on 3/11.
      It was very first time we conducted Die-In as the monthly rally action.

      BTW, I mailed the letter to Abe PM with my protest letter to the consuls by certified mail on March 14th.
