Rally Protest-Stop Release Of Radioactive Water From Fukushima
The SF Bay Area “No Nukes Action Committee” has been campaigning to protect the people of Fukushima and Japan, and to keep other Japanese nuclear plants closed. The Japanese government is now saying that they will release thousands of tons of radioactive water into the Pacifica because the tanks are full at Fukushima. We must stop this for all people in the Pacific rim. The Committee also opposes all nuclear plants, including the PG&E operated Diablo Canyon nuclear plant on the Pacific coast over earthquake faults and near San Louis Obispo. We have monthly rallies to speak-out at the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco on the 11th of every month at 3:00 pm. The consulate is located at 275 Battery St/California St., San Francisco, near the Embarcadero BART Station. Next action is on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 3:00 PM.

Miho Kim of Eclipse Rising will also report on the campaign against the revision of education textbooks in Japan to censor the history of "comfort women" and the 2nd WW.
The contamination of the people of Fukushima and Japan continues. Children and families are getting sick. There is a growing epidemic of thyroid cysts and surgeries. The statistics are being covered up by the Japanese government. Additionally, Shunichi Tanaka, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority is preparing to release thousands of tons of contaminated radioactive water into the Pacific ocean.

This will be lethal to life in the oceans! It will reach California and the entire Pacific rim. The Abe government in power is continuing to tell the Japanese people that they can "overcome" radiation, and that they can de-contaminate Fukushima. Chieko Shiina is an anti-nuclear activist in Fukushima who has been fighting to get emergency healthcare to the residents. They are organizing against the restart of Japan's remaining 50 nuclear plants, which the Abe government wants to restart with the support of the United States.
Miho Kim of Eclipse Rising will also give a report on the campaign against the revision of history on school books about the 2nd WW by the Japanese Abe government.
There will also be the screening of "Decontamination".
