Japanese Consulate 50 Fremont St./Mission St.
San Francisco

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 prevent public outrage and activism about 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.

Both the Japanese government and TEPCO were warned in 2004 in the Japan Times article by Leuren Moret that there would be a massive disaster due to the location of these 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.
These conditions are also present in the US within the nuclear industry including the PG&E San Louis Obispo plant and the Obama administration continues to support tax
subsidies and licensing of new plants. They have also covered up the release of toxics at the locked out Honeywell nuclear processing plant in Metropolis, Illinois. The government has allowed scabs to be brought in by manipulating the testing and this plant is a danger to the workers and the public.

Obama and the nuclear industry with the support of the AFL-CIO continues to push "safe" nuclear power. 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 nuclear power. This is also the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl where children, the people and the environment are still suffering from contamination from the meltdown.
The use of nuclear plants, nuclear weapons including depleted uranium bombs must be eliminated and only the people can make this happen.

The Japanese government in collusion with TEPCO is now raising the regulatory limits of the intake of radiation in order to convince the people everything is fine and people will not be harmed.
