6/11 Rally-Speak Out Defend The Children and  People of Fukushima and Stop the Start-up of More Nuclear Plants in Japan

Saturday 11, 2016  3:00 PM and March to Union Square at 3:30 PM
275 Battery St./California St.
San Francisco

On Saturday June 11 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 Abe government continues to seek the restart of many nuclear plants despite the great dangers of another Fukushima melt-down.
The continued growth of Thyroid cancers in children and families both in Fukushima and in Japan is growing and the government using a recently passed secrecy law is attempting to prevent the people from knowing about these dangers. The subcontractor and plant workers continue be contaminated and the government which is running TEPCO refuses to properly train them and protect them from the dangerous plant. Nuclear plant whistleblower continue to be retaliated against.
We call for the evacuation of the children and families in Fukushima with compensation and oppose the propaganda that Fukushima has been “decontaminated” and that the Japanese people can
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. We will also have  report from Diablo Canyon and the dangers of the last operating nuclear plant in Japan. PG&E also want to continue to operate this plant despite the age and continued contamination of the community. There are cancer clusters in San Louis Obispo that are directly a result of this nuclear plant and the government refuses to protect nuclear plant whistleblowers who are concerned about the health and safety of workers and the community.
US sailors have also were in the area have also been contaminated and are now getting serious cases of cancer and other diseases. They are also suing TEPCO for damages.
We must continue to speak out against the danger of Fukushima and other nuclear plants to the people of Japan and the world of these dangerous nuclear plants and call for the closure of all nuclear plants around the world.
