6/10 SF Action: STOP NUKES And End The Cover-Up Of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Catastrophe
Close All Nuclear Plants In Japan, US And the World

Rally Japan Consulate Mission and 50 Fremont St. San Francisco With March to Bechtel Corporation 50 Beale St. San Francisco
The nuclear melt down and environmental catastrophe in Fushima, Japan continues unabated. The nuclear workers, the communities and their children in the Fukushima area continue to be contaminated. The Tokyo Electric Power Company TEPCO along with the government have withheld information about this disaster to the, workers, people and their families and have changed the regulations protecting people from radioactive dangers.
At the same time, this radioactive leaking and contamination is spreading to the US and around the world and the California nuclear power plants at San Louis Obispo and San Onofre have been built right on faults as well. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has also admitted that they have no plans for a regional environmental catastrophe like the earthquake in the Sendai/Tohoku area.

This means similar events can happen right here in the US. We will also be demanding that all US nuclear plants be closed and that there be no US tax dollars used to subsidize
the nuclear industry. Funds should be used for solar/clean energy and the building of a public/community controlled energy system along with a mass public transportation system that is energy efficient and not based to support the profit of these industries.
Today, even in California for example in Fresno, efforts are still being made to build nuclear plants

The US government in collaboration with GE, Westinghouse, Babcock-Wilcox, Bechtel and other corporations are pushing
nuclear power plants and industry for profits despite the deadly dangers for humanity. It is time to call a halt
to this nightmare.
Join with us to call for action to close these plants now.

The Japanese people are beginning to rise up against the Fukushima disaster and the cover-up by TEPCO and the Japanese government. The US government and US corporations as well have pushed for nuclear power in Japan for decades despite the great dangers.
