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