The Peace and Freedom Party has endorsed this event.
On May 7, 2011, thousands of Japanese workers, farmers and people will be protesting the continued use of nuclear power in Japan and the information cover-up on the nuclear disaster by the Japanese government in collusion with Tokyo Electric Power Company TEPCO. The government has flagrantly manipulated public safety standards for radioactive contamination from week to week in order to limit public outrage and activism against this threat to the people of Japan and the world.
The US government, in fact, was directly responsible for organizing a political campaign to force the Japanese people to accept these dangerous nuclear plants. They orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign and managed this corporate scheme to sell GE nuclear plants. Despite these public warnings, the Japanese government, TEPCO executives and US corporations profiting from these plants ignored these warnings, and continued to operate the plants including Fukushima, putting the Japanese people and the people of the world in danger. This was a man made disaster for greater profits driven by both Japanese and US corporations.
As we now know from this world disaster at Fukushima, there is no “safe” nuclear power and we must shift to safe alternative energy such as wind, solar and more efficiency in the use of energy. The use of nuclear plants, nuclear weapons including depleted uranium bombs must be end, and only the people can make this happen.
