SF Speak Out At Japan Consulate To Stop Restarting of Japanese NUKE Plants, Defense of Fukushima Children and Families And Against Abe Gov Cover-up
Monday February 11, 2019 3:00 PM
275 Battery St near California St.
Join No Nukes Action when we have our monthly action at the San Francisco Japanese Consulate to opposed the restarting of Japan’s nuclear plants. The Abe government has claimed that it has “decontaminated" Fukushima and is coercing the refugees and their children and families to return to the area or lose their housing subsidies. The facts are that the melted nuclear rods are still highly dangerous and hot requiring thousands of tons of water. The government wants to release this radioactive water which is in hundreds of tanks surround the plants into the Pacifica ocean despite the opposition of fisherman and the community.
In order to get the 2020 Olympics the Abe government claimed that Fukushima problem had been solved and that it was “decontaminated”. This is was an overt brazen lie and falsification of the real situation and show the real political charter of the Abe government.
At the same time, there is an increase in the amount of cesium in the waters around Fukushima nearly eight years after the explosion of the nuclear plants and contamination of Fukushima, Japan and the world. The Abe government is also pushing for militarization and removal of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution that prevents military interventions outside Japan. They are also pushing for a new US military base in Okinawa despite the opposition of the mass of Okinawan people and the governor. This base would also have US nuclear ships and weapons which is presently against the US Japan Security Agreement. The US has already violated this agreement many times and used Okinawa as a base for illegal wars around the world.
The majority of Japanese people are opposed to restarting Japan’s nuclear plants including the previous 3 prime ministers who are worried that Japan would be destroyed with another disaster like Fukushima. Again this shows that the Abe government has contempt for the people it supposedly represents. Join the rally and speak out.
Defend the people of Fukushima, Japan and the world.

The continued dangers of more major earthquakes in Japan threaten another Fukushima yet the government continues to re-open more nuclear power plants. Many have been operating for over 30 to 40 years and are creating dangerous threats to the people of Japan and the world.
