On April 11, community and environmental activists will rally and speak out at the Japanese consulate in San Francisco to oppose the restart of the 50 Japanese nuclear plants, for the evacuation of the children and families from Fukushima and against the secrecy law recently passed by the Abe government.
The Japanese government with he support of the US government wants to say that you can "decontaminate" Fukushima and that the people can overcome radiation.
The government has also repressed anti-nuclear activists who have been organizing and leafletting against the burning of nuclear rubble in Osaka and other prefectures in Japan.
The Japanese government which is also now running TEPCO is allowing the Yakuza and subcontractors to hire out day laborers and other workers who are brought into the plant without proper training and being radiated. Many are not even registered so that if they get cancer they will receive no healthcare and compensation.
Alongside the secrecy law are also efforts to militarize Japan by eliminating article 9 in the Japanese constitution which prohibits Japan from using the military in other countries and expanding the military. The US government including politicians like Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi is supporting the remilitarization of Japan.
The No Nukes Action Committee NNA has been having monthly rallies against the restart of the nuclear plants and also for the elimination of nuclear power in Japan and the US.
Rally starts at 3:00 PM at 275 Battery St. near the Embarcadero BART station

Nuclear plant workers are being radiated and many of them are temporary workers with no training or protection.
