2月11日反原発・反核抗議集会の参加案内

メルトダウンから8年、時間が経てば経つほど強制避難地区に帰還した老人たちは孤独に追いやられ、人生の目的と人間の尊厳を失い、自殺が多くなったと報告があります。

それは国がメルトダウンの深刻な問題を国民に認識して欲しくないので、除染したから安全であるという嘘を押し付け、しかも避難解除をした1年後には保証を切り、元住民に戻ってくるよう強要しても、前の住民の1割以下しかもどらず、老人たちは、家族も訪ねてくる人もなく、淋しい生活をしているからです。

子供達の甲状腺癌は200人を超え、おとなたちの種々な健康被害が増えているなか、国はそれに真剣に取り込むどころか、福島の問題から目をそらせるために、オリンピックを来年開催しようと巨額を費やしています。
その税金こそ、福島の問題に当てなければならないものです。

そして福一の敷地は、トリチウムなどが残っている汚染水のタンクでいっぱい。
数年でタンクを確保する場所はなくなり、国・東電は太平洋に流し出す算段をしています。
福島の漁民はもちろん、世界も反対しています。

そしてメルトダウンした原子炉の収束は遅々として進まず、燃料の場所、状態もいまだ分からず、ロボットを何度も改良し、溶けた燃料の取り出し方法を探した上で、2021年には取り出しを開始したいというのが今の予定。
やはり、気が遠くなるほど困難な仕事です。

こんな極めて困難な仕事を要する原発を、人間をこんなに惨めにする原発を、日本はなんでいくつも再稼働するのでしょうか?
反省などないではありませんか? 国民の人権・幸福を無視しているではありませんか?
何故ですか?
核を保持したいからとしか思えません。安倍政府は愚かなことをしています。

国民が、政府の嘘にごまかせられず、もっと反対の声を上げて多数立ち上がらなければならないと思います。
あなたも立ち上がってください! SFの日本領事館前に参集してください!

    Exactly one month before the 8th anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster in Japan, the Bay Area No Nukes Action Committee held their usual monthly rally in front of the Consulate — this time with some surprise guests. People working at the Consulate and building security stopped by to ask questions from some of the attendees in the middle of the rally. Given Japan’s crack down on its own journalists and citizenry regarding information about the disaster, the Consulate’s intrusion hardly comes as a true surprise — but maybe the boldness with which the NNA was approached on the streets does. It was very interesting to note how quickly two or more of those working for the Consulate and gathered near the entrance to the building DARTED FOR COVER once they were shown on film. You can often make a determination of honesty and forthright conduct based on how plain and evident somebody makes their intentions. These two looked like a couple of sneaky cowards ducking behind building security as soon as they saw they were on camera. Does that sound like principled or honest activity? Is THAT a snapshot of the Japanese government? Cowards hiding behind paid security?

    Anyway, as to the rally, Chizu opened again with a nice recap.

    “We are here again, every month to protest:” nuclear power plant, nuclear weapons, and militarism. After 8 years, government is pushing evacuees to return to contaminated areas – and that push started after only 5 years after the disaster. Only 10% or so actually returning, most of those are seniors who went back without their families, because younger people largely realize the risks of living in contaminated areas. So, senior returnees are lonely, isolated – and they don’t get visited by younger generations who are concerned about the risks. Some of the seniors have chosen to commit suicide because of their loneliness. Returning to their homes was not at all how they had envisioned or desired. Seniors need to be cared for, but there aren’t enough people to care for them medically, professionally.

    If it was only a short range term since meltdowns, return would be easier. But, since that time, people have established their lives elsewhere – how can they just come back, plucked from their current jobs, lives, efforts, etc.? Japan’s government has spent a lot of money to begin a public disinformation campaign through commercials all through Japan urging people to “know the truth” about the situation, that Fukushima is safe, urging people to return, eat in/from, and come back to Fukushima. Toyoma prefecture did NOT run the ad because it was opposed by local broadcast companies. The rest of Japan ran the ad. For reasons like that, the NNA and Chizu are still standing their ground and supporting the evacuees and Japanese people. Japan’s government seems to be constantly lying to the people – not just about the victims, but to the entire public by making claims that the accident has been contained and cleaned.

    Steve Zelter-
    It was nice to see Steve back in action. He spoke to say supposedly the Fukushima disaster is cleaned up, as claimed by government. The reality is different. The nuclear rods haven’t been removed 8 years after the disaster. Which means they still need water to cool rods. That, in turn, means more contaminated water. Abe government lied to the Olympic committee by claiming decontamination. 8 years later, the problems are still ongoing – if you can’t even remove the nuclear rods from the plant, how can you claim to have decontaminated the place? Japan is on Ring of Fire – earthquakes are likely. Including another big one. Which is why former prime ministers are opposed to starting nuclear plants. Another major quake or problem could cause even worse meltdowns. Where are Japanese to go if that happens? Japan is a small island.

    Militarism, march to militarism is another big problem in Japan. The drive to alter or eliminate Article 9 of the Constitution. Priorities are distorted, people in Japan having hard times economically, and governments here and Japan have been spending massive amounts on militarism, when those funds should be used elsewhere. Homeless people in San Francisco dying, dystopia. Military base being built in Okinawa, despite majority against. Instead of spending money on people in Japan, the government here and in Japan have been using those funds to build bases, weapons, etc. Corporate media have been working to keep people uninterested, uninformed, with little exposure the issue wanes from public perception. Japanese have been propagandized that everything is OK. People can “overcome radiation.” Another issue, increasing repression in Japan, activists arrested for peaceful protest. Government wants to spread decontaminated material . . .

    As if on cue, representatives from the Japanese Consulate came to question an attendee(s) who was acting as a reporter for school. When the NNA went inside the building to ask about the situation and being questioned, they were told not to come inside. Then, later, when filming outside the building.

    Kazmii read the monthly letter which was well-written. The major point being that, if Abe wishes to escape the yoke of history as being a “mass murderer,” or at the very least, a prime minister who had little concern for his people, then he had better act honestly to clean up the area and to care for the evacuees.

    NEXT MONTH IS THE 8TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI MELTDOWNS. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! BRING ANYBODY YOU KNOW WHO IS INTERESTED AT MEET AT THE CONSULATE TO SPEAK OUT, OR READ YOUR OWN LETTER.

    Thanks again to the NNA for being world heroes.
