Press Release-November 11, 2012 Rally March Starting At Japanese Consulate To Stop Reopening Of Nuclear Plants In Japan

Event: Rally Speakout To Stop Reopening Of Japan's 50 Nuclear Plants

Place: 50 Fremont St. San Francisco

Time: 3:00 PM


Japanese, Japanese Americans and community labor activists will rally and march on November 11, 2012 at the San Francisco Japanese
Consulate to protest the plans of the Japanese government and utility industry to reopen the closed nuclear plants in Japan.
Despite continued contamination at the Fukushima plant and failure to secure it from a further earthquake the Japanese government
and major political parties continue to push to reopen the remaining 50 plants.
The government has now admitted that the Oih nuclear plant which was recently reopened despite massive protests has an active nuclear
fault directly under the plant.

Speakers will report on the continuing plans to "decontaminate" the Fukushima area and force the residents to move back to the plant
as close as 4 miles. The government with the collaboration of the International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA has proclaimed that the area
and region around the plant can be reclaimed through "scrubbing homes" and removing the topsoil of schools in the Fukushima region.

There has been an epidemic of thyroid cysts in children in the region and the continuing contamination of the region and world is a serious
health problem despite the proclamations from the government, utilities and nuclear industry that this catastrophe can be contained
and overcome.

There will be a rally and march to the PG&E building which is seeking to use sonar in the ocean around the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant
to allow it's continued operation. In California, PG&E as well as the Southern California Edison Company which operates the San Onofre
nuclear plant continue to demand that the ratepayers pay for the operation of the plant. The dangerous San Onofre has had leaks in its tubes
and it is presently shutdown and has cost the people of California over $300 million yet the California Public Utilities Commission Chair
Michael Peevey and the CPUC board are refusing to permanently close the plant. Instead they want the ratepayers and people of California
to pay for the continued operation of these dangerous plants.

This rally and march has been initiated by the No Nukes Action Committee which is part of the Nuclear Free California Network.

In some surveys 30% of the children of Fukushima have thyroid cysts and the government of Japan has refused to fund the evacuation of the children and families of the area unless they were within 13 miles of the nuclear plant.
