12/11 SF Japan Consulate Speak-out-Evacuate The Families and Children Of Fukushima And Stop The Cover-up

275 Battery St./California St. San Francisco
On Sunday December 11, 2016 at 3:00 PM there will be a speak out rally to defend the families and children of Fukushima and against the restart of Japan’s nuclear plants.
The Japanese Abe government continues to tell the people of Fukushima and Japan that they have “decontaminated” Fukushima and families and workers should move back. The reality is that people continue to be contaminated and even the government admits that the financial costs are out of control.
At the same time the government is seeking to sell more nuclear power plants to countries throughout the world including Turkey.
The majority of Japanese people are against the restarting of nuclear power plants but the Abe government is moving ahead to restart more plants. The government which has nationalized TEPCO because of the massive financial costs is using contract labor with tens of thousands of workers becoming contaminated in this work. They have brought in immigrant workers and day laborers in some cases under the control of Yakuza contractors and most of these workers doing work at the plant do not receive proper health and safety training putting them in serious health dangers.
The government has also raised the level of acceptable radioactive contamination.
The government is also pushing militarization and supporting more US bases in Okinawa that will contain nuclear weapons despite the opposition of the people of Okinawa.
Join the speak out in support of the Fukushima families and in opposition to the restarting of the Japan’s remaining 40 nuclear plants.
Speak Out and Rally initiated by
No Nukes Action Committee

Japan Kagoshima Governor under fire as Sendai nuclear reactor likely to restart ““What he had done over the past months now appears to be a mere publicity stunt,” said Yukio Taira, chief of a confederation of labor unions in Kagoshima Prefecture. Taira withdrew his candidacy in the governor’s race in July after he and Mitazono agreed on many policy measures toward a temporary halt of operations at the nuclear plant in Satsuma-Sendai.”
