Speak Out For The People Of Fukushima And Against Release Of Radioactive Water Into Pacific Ocean
275 Battery St./California
San Francisco, CA
Join the No Nukes Action Committee and other organizations and people on February 11, 2015 at 3:00 PM to protest the continued contamination of the people of Fukushima and Japan from the Fukushima meltdowns. The Japanese government is now demanding that the residents return to Fukushima saying that it is cleaned up and "safe". They are also covering up the growing cancer epidemic.
At the same time the government has announced that it will be releasing thousands of tons of radioactive water in tanks into the Pacifica ocean.
This is a direct threat no only on the people of Japan but all the people in the Pacific rim and the world.
We need to let the Abe government that no government should be allowed to release dangerous radioactive water into the Pacifica ocean where it will contaminate the entire Pacific.
The Abe government is also pushing toward militarization and changing the Japanese constitution to prepare for war. They have passed a "secrecy" law to repress journalists and others who are investigating government corporate corruption and the continuing crisis at Fukushima.
Also sign the international petition against releasing the radioactive water

Petition To Stop Release Of Radioactive Water From Fukushima Into Pacific Ocean
Briefly, there are 866 storage tanks at Fukushima Daiichi, each holding 1000 TONS of highly radioactive water, which has been used to cool the reactor cores. This makes a total of 866,000 TONS of water, with 350 tons added every day. In addition, there are 13,400 tons of highly contaminated water in Reactor 1, 15,800 tons in Reactor 2, 16,900 tons in Reactor 3 and no more fuel but 14,500 tons of water in Reactor 4, a total of 60,600 tons! The Japan NRA wants all this water to be discharged into the Pacific, as the site is running out of space to build more tanks.
Please sign and disseminate this new petition:
Even without dumping water from the tanks, there is lots of radioactive water contaminating the Pacific from Fukushima. The groundwater, which was NOT used to cool reactors by TEPCO, comes into contact with the molten cores which have broken through their containers. At least 350 TONS of this contaminated groundwater finds its way into the Pacific EVERY DAY, despite the efforts of TEPCO to catch it in trenchesand contain it with ice walls or cement- these efforts have failed. And the radioactivity in the groundwater keeps increasing.
Cs-134/137 and all β nuclides (including Sr-90) density showed the rapid increase in groundwater, according to Tepco. The sample was taken in the seaside of Reactor 2. Sampling date was 1/12/2015. Compared to the previous measurement of 1/8/2015, Cs-134/137 density rose up by 57 times, all β nuclides density also rose up by 57 times. This is the highest reading measured from this boring. Tepco hasn’t identified the reason. This boring is located outside of the underground wall to stop contaminated groundwater flowing to the sea.
For pumping water groundwater observation hole No.1-12 taken on January 12, cesium 134, cesium 137, cobalt 60 and total beta value is higher as compared with the previous value, the maximum value previously is detected.
• Cesium-134: 140 Bq/L [~7,500% above Jan. 5 level; new record high]
• Cesium-137: 470 Bq/L [~7,500% above Jan. 5 level; new record high]
• Cobalt-60: 1.9 Bq/L [Quadruple previous record high set in 2013]
• β (all beta): 15,000 Bq/L [~6,000% above Jan. 8 level; ~1,300% above previous record high]
Note that observation hole No. 1-12 is near the Unit 2 trench which is filled with thousands of tons of highly radioactive water. Tepco is attempting to seal the trench, but has failed to do so. According to page 2 of Tepco’s presentation to Japan’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority on Dec. 26, 2014 the only part of the trench that has been blocked is right next to No. 1-12 (see map on right).
Could all this radioactivity in the ocean explain massive dieoffs of birds and sickness in sea mammals?
Common murres and Cassin’s auklets dead on the beach in great numbers… Oregon is thecataclysm’s epicenter… He doesn’t expect the crush of deaths to let up any time soon… [It's] up to 100 times greater than normal annual death rates... Unfortunately the Cassins are the canary in the coalmine for us, so they’re telling us something is going on. To put it mildly, we’re still scrambling to figure out what’s going on with the ecosystem… Of course, everybody always wants to point the finger at climate change. The thing about climate change is it’s a very slow, steady change.
ABC Los Angeles, Jan 12, 2015: New at 5, a big increase in the number of stranded sea lions being rescued… Some of them very seriously ill… nearly a dozen sea lions at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. Facilities across California are reporting a massive increase in the number of sea lions needing to be rescued in 2015… Baby sea lions [are] in very bad shape.

The reactionary Japanese Abe government is demanding that children and families return to Fukushima or their compensation will be cut off. Radiation continues to leave the nuclear reactors which still are not contained
