Stop Restart Of Japan Nuclear Plants

People concerned about the growing threat that Japanese nuclear plants will be restarted after the Fukushima disaster will be speaking out at the San Francisco Japanese consulate. The regular monthly action is for people concerned about the protection of children and families of Fukushima as well as the thousands of workers who have become contaminated by the Fukushima meltdown and continuing release of radioactive material.
The Abe government continues to state that it has overcome radiation at the site despite the opposite evidence and that it can decontaminate the Fukushima area. It is also ordering residents to return despite the high levels of radioactive material.
The press conference and rally is sponsored by the No Nukes Action Committee

Nuclear Power, Health and Safety, Labor and Fight in a Court - International Educational Conference
July 18(Saturday) 10:00 - 3:00 PM (Free) ILWU 34 Hall - 801 2nd St. next to AT&T ball park
Nuclear Power, Health and Safety, Labor and Fight in a Court - International Educational Conference
There are hundreds of aging nuclear plants in the US and around the world that are becoming increasingly dangerous. The Fukushima plant in Japan continues to release thousands of tons of radioactive water into the Pacific and a growing epidemic of thyroid cancer of children and people is developing in Japan. At the same time, the Japan’s Abe government is seeking to restart the remaining nuclear plants and also export nuclear plants throughout the world. There are also lawsuits against the manufacturers of nuclear plants and a successful lawsuit against a Korean nuclear plant where a woman got cancer from that plant. The Korean lawsuit’s success is an important step in protecting the communities near nuclear plants not only in Korea but throughout the world. This international education conference will discuss the growing dangers in the nuclear industry, problems facing nuclear whistleblowers and their efforts to protect the workers, public and communities that live around nuclear plants.
Speakers include:
Lee Ji Seop : Filed a successful lawsuit against the Korean nuclear power plant on behalf of his wife who had thyroid cancer
Choi Seung-koo : founder of the law suit against the Japanese and international nuclear reactor makers
Rev. Lee, Dae-soo
Dr. Robert Gould : President SF-Bay Area Physicians For Social Responsibility
Dr. Larry Rose : Former Medical Director of Cal-OSHA
Bob Rowen : Nuclear power plant whistleblower, former Humboldt PG&E nuclear plant worker and member of IBEW 1245
Donna Gilmore : Founder, San Onofre Safety
