4/11 Rally-Speak Out on Japan Kyushu Earthquake and Dangers of Another Fukushima Ignored by Abe Government

On Wednesday May 11th at 3:00 PM , people will speak out at the San Francisco Japanese consulate to demand the closure of all nuclear plants in Japan including the Sendai nuclear plant and another nuclear plant in Kyushu. The recent 7.3 earthquake in Kyushu was very close to the Sendia plant which has been restarted by the Abe government and the corporate controlled Nuclear Regulatory Agency. The same corporate controlled agency has said that “the Sendai reactors can withstand seismic damage and don’t pose a risk to the surrounding area.” The government using secrecy laws is also now clamping down on the press in Japan not to let the public know about the serious dangers to the communities and public about another Fukushima. The Abe appointed head of the national Japanese channel warned the reporters that they  “shouldn’t stir up needless alarm”. This attack on journalist to shutdown information has even been criticized by the UN last month when U.N. Special Rapporteur David Kaye said “The independence of the press is facing serious threats — a weak system of legal protection, persistent government exploitation of a media lacking in professional solidarity,”

The government and nuclear industry has refused to allow the media to go to the Sendai nuclear plant to check on what is happening there. There is now a national campaign and international campaign to demand that the nuclear plants be shutdown in Kyushu. This cover-up is also going on at Fukushima where the government is demanding that the refugees return or have their housing subsidies eliminated.
The Japanese government which runs TEPCO is continuing to release radioactive water including Tritium into the Pacific ocean and telling the children of Fukushima there is nothing to worry about while keeping information about the growing thyroid cancer surgeries in people in Fukushima and Japan.
People in the United States must not remain silent. They need to speak out for the people of Fukushima and the world that the nuclear plants in Japan as well as the US need to be closed including Diablo Canyon which is also on an earthquake fault.

Our lives and the lives of all people depend on it.
