International Events Listing for 3.11 Third Anniversary March 2014
The meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station occurred three years ago on March 11, 2011 (and the next few days thereafter). For three years TEPCO has been bungling the remediation effort while the life and health of everyone on this planet has been seriously threatened by the uncontained release of radiation, especially in Japan. And it's going to go on for decades, if not centuries more. Right now Daiichi is in a state of collapse from every angle: infrastructure weakened, manpower shortages, cooling systems deteriorating, lethally radioactive water storage leaks, contaminated groundwater rising to the surface, electrical systems highly vulnerable, all of this at risk of a major earthquake taking it out entirely.

In spite of all this, the PM is energetically pushing nuclear technology to India, Korea, Turkey and Vietnam. Japan's new Secrecy Law could make it a crime to investigate nuclear issues; and the harassment and jailing of Japanese anti-nuclear activists must stop!

Tepco's poisoning of the Pacific is studied the world over except for the U.S. and Japan. Most of us have no illusion that the water is safe and that the marine products are safe. We're giving up fish- BUT WE'RE NOT GIVING UP THE FIGHT TO FIX FUKUSHIMA and EVACUATE THE CHILDREN!!

We are taking to the streets to demand action. Not weak assurances of safety or outright lies. We want results. Here are a selection of events planned for 3.11 2014 that will bring your voice to the fore, that will let your concerns be heard, that will strengthen your heart, and your resolve. There's no turning back; Fukushima is Here.

March 11, 2014 is important; for one day we become one with Japan.

Forgive me if your event is not listed here, just send me the info at: info@fukushimaresponsebayarea so I can add it.



No Nukes Action, San Francisco Consulate
JAPAN CONSULATE ACTIONS

We are asking everyone all over the world to assemble in front of your nearest Japanese Consulate to protest the ongoing denial of responsibility by TEPCO and Japan's government. We also ask you to write a letter to the Japanese Prime Minister, His Excellency Shinzo Abe. It should also be addressed to the General Consul of the city you are in, and it must end with the name and address of the (a) writer, in order to be delivered to Tokyo. If these conditions are met, they are required to deliver it to the PM in Tokyo. Only one name is needed on the letter, which means you can carry out a one-person action if you can't find anyone else to go with you! If any Japanese are involved in these actions, we ask them to please translate the letter into Japanese as well; if it's not possible, an English letter will do. It would be best to have two copies of each letter (and of course a copy for the world; send them here!), one for the PM and one for the General Consul. For those of you in the U.S., here's a map of all the Japan Consulate locations: http://www.us.emb-japan.go.jp/visa/map.htm

It's best to call ahead of the day of protest to request that the Consul (or his/her deputy) come down to meet you and receive the letter. Read the letter out loud to the Consul and make sure to videotape and/or photograph it. Try to get a sign indicating the location (Consulate) in your photos; they won't allow you to photograph inside the building front doors.

No Nukes Action will seek to link these events up with live streaming on the Independent Web Journal (IWJ) (They've live-streamed the Tokyo demos and the Oi anti-restart protests, among many other things). We are going to archive all letters and videos if you send us copies, but in any case spread them far and wide. And definitely let the people of Japan know what you're doing!

Flagstaff, AZ

From Fukushima to the Four Corners
WHEN: Friday, March 7th – 6:00 PM
WHERE: County Courthouse Lawn – San Francisco St. & Birch St. (map)
WHAT: Candle light Vigil & Procession
WHAT TO BRING: Candles, Banners, & Letter of Solidarity

Please join us for a vigil and procession to show solidarity with all people affected by nuclear radiation. There will be a talking circle at 6 PM and a candle light vigil at sundown. We will then have a procession through downtown Flagstaff during Art Walk.

We will also be collecting letters of Solidarity with the people of Japan to send to Japanese Prime Minister Abe. These letters should, in your own words, focus on the dangers of nuclear power and urge the Prime Minister to fully decommission all of the nuclear reactors in Japan (they are all currently shut down). It would also be great to include explanations that link their use of nuclear power to the devastating effects uranium mining and milling have had on the Four Corners region and how we are all affected locally by their use of nuclear power.

We call on the Japanese government: The consistent nuclear phase-out: no re-commissioned nuclear power plants, no construction of new nuclear power plants nor any export of nuclear technology; The accelerated expansion of renewable energy and energy efficiency investments; Responsible and effective measures to prevent further contamination in and around FUKUSHIMA, in particular to stop the further influx of radioactivity into the sea at last; The evacuation of people, especially children, from the contaminated area; Adequate compensation / support for the FUKUSHIMA affected; Treatment and storage of nuclear waste appropriate to its dangerousness, including the excavated contaminated earth masses; A transparent information policy and the withdrawal of the secrecy law.We ask for your support! A clear and loud voice from Germany encourages the anti-nuclear activists in Japan who are in a tough fight. Let's show the Japanese government that FUKUSHIMA is an international affair. Let the people both in Germany and in Japan remember that FUKUSHIMA is not long gone!
