The growing dangers and systemic health and safety problems at nuclear plants in the US, Japan and around the world are a threat to the workers and communities. On March 9, 2012 there will be a national conference in San Francisco to focus on the issue of health and safety at nuclear plants and the systemic retaliation against nuclear plant whistleblowers. If the 1% stops whistleblowers from reporting on the dangers of nuclear plants, it’s only a matter of time till we’ll be having Fukushima in California.

It will also look at the failure of government agencies to do proper
oversight of the retaliation of whistleblowers at these nuclear plants and how this failure to protect these health and safety whistleblowers needs to be addressed. It will also look at how the communities have been affected including Fukushima and California where San Onofre and Diablo Canyon nuclear plants continue to threaten the environment and nuclear plant workers.

Speakers will include nuclear plant whistleblowers, health and safety experts and advocates and others who are seeking justice, transparency and accountability.

Initial Speakers:
Dale Bridenbaugh, nuclear whistleblower who visited Fukushima
Paul Garner, Lawyer for injured service people from Japan who were
involved in Tomadachi
And USS Reagan Sailor contaminated by Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown
Dr. Larry Rose, Former Medical Officer in Charge of Medical Unit Ca-Osha
David Bear, Nuclear Whistleblower Three Mile Island
Video From Fukushima Mothers

We the Tree People are trying to educate people by starting a movement of when ordering Coffee by saying "No room for Fukashima" meaning no room for Milk as there is cesium is in the Dairy products. Thus we are able to help spread information about the dangers in the Dairy products through ordering coffee both to patrons but workers too.
