The San Francisco Peace and Freedom Party endorses this event.
The disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan continues despite the efforts to keep the real threats secret from the people of Japan and the world.
Children and the residents continue to be contaminated and the plant number 4 could still collapse in another major earthquake with thousands of used nuclear rods giving off even greater contamination.
The closure of all the nuclear plants in Japan was a result of anger by the Japanese people and the growing knowledge that they cannot afford another Fukushima disaster.
Despite these horrific dangers that threaten the very existence of Japan, Prime Minister Noda and both major political parties are pushing for the restarting of two nuclear reactors in the town of Ohi which is in the Fukushima prefecture in the Western part of Japan.
This is not only an issue for the Japanese people and environment. The Pacifica ocean has now become polluted with cesium and other nuclear materials which are still pouring into the Pacific ocean from the rivers of Fukushima. Tuna caught off the coast of California have been found to contain radiation from Fukushima.
The Japanese government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company have also been completely silent about their responsibility for the nuclear contamination of the entire Asia Pacifica region.
At the same time, the government of Japan has refused to even evacuate even the children of Fukushima despite the continued radioactive contamination and a likely cancer epidemic.
This event is part of an International Day of Action and a simultaneous action will take place in Los Angeles at the Consulate there. It has been initiated by Green Action Japan. It is endorsed by
