FUKUSHIMA IS HEREAdded to the calendar on Thursday Oct 3rd, 2013 3:14 AM
its radiation is in our air, our soil,
and our ocean, Mother of all life
WE ARE HERE to tell the world
that we, and the ocean, are not
going down—not without a fight
In March 2011 three reactors at the Fukushima Nuclear Station melted down completely, the location of their molten cores a mystery. For 2.5 years they've been flooding the Pacific with contaminated water and the jetstream with radioactive particles.
There's been no attempt to contain the disaster, only day to day crisis management, more and more water poured into the reactors, only to leak out into the ocean. We need to stand up and demand that our leaders act in concert to save our ocean from total destruction, before it's too late. Without an international effort, all marine life will be damaged by Tritium, and other highly lethal radioisotopes. Tepco's actions have only made things worse; their underground walls to retain the water are turning the site into a swamp, and increasing the chance of a building collapse and another meltdown in a spent fuel pool.
BE HERE with us, at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, October 19, 2013 from 11 AM to 12, to create a human mural with our bodies, spelling "FUKUSHIMA IS HERE"
