International Events Listing for 3.11 Third Anniversary March 2014

Buddhist March for PeaceTo see the complete listing of international events visit 3.11 Third Anniversary of Fukushima Nuclear Accident Events and Actions Worldwide.

The meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station occurred three years ago on March 11, 2011. The ongoing nuclear catastrophe continues to this day.  For three years TEPCO has been bungling the remediation effort while the life and health of everyone on this planet has been seriously threatened by the uncontained release of radiation, especially in Japan.

It’s going to go on for decades, if not centuries more.  Right now Daiichi is in a state of collapse from every angle: infrastructure weakened, manpower shortages, cooling systems deteriorating, lethally radioactive water storage leaks, contaminated groundwater rising to the surface, electrical systems highly vulnerable, all of this at risk of a major earthquake taking it out entirely.

In spite of all this, the PM is energetically pushing nuclear technology to India, Korea, Turkey and Vietnam. Japan’s new Secrecy Law could make it a crime to investigate nuclear issues; and the harassment and jailing of Japanese anti-nuclear activists must stop!

Tepco’s poisoning of the Pacific is studied the world over except for the U.S. and Japan. Most of us have no illusion that the water is safe and that the marine products are safe. We’re giving up fish- BUT WE’RE NOT GIVING UP THE FIGHT TO FIX FUKUSHIMA and EVACUATE THE CHILDREN!!

We are taking to the streets to demand action. Not weak assurances of safety or outright lies. We want results. Here are a selection of events planned for 3.11 2014 that will bring your voice to the fore, that will let your concerns be heard, that will strengthen your heart, and your resolve.  There’s no turning back; Fukushima is Here.

March 11, 2014 is important; for one day we become one with Japan.

If you would like your event listed here, send the event info to info@fukushimaresponsebayarea,  so it can added.

March 11th 2014 marks the third year anniversary since the beginning of Fukushima Nuclear Disaster in March 2011. This disaster was caused by not only the massive earthquake and tsunami, but the human error and irresponsibility of the state, nuclear industry and their supporters who prioritize profit over people. Countless issues remain unresolved at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, as well as in the surrounding areas with high levels of radioactivity. The radiation from the coast of Fukushima is also contaminating the Pacific Ocean, reminding us that we are all connected by the sea. Fukushima leaves us an overwhelming question; are there any safe places, food or water left for us, or for future generations?

We New Yorkers also live next to Indian Point Energy Center’s two nuclear reactors, sitting right on Hudson River, 25 miles north of NYC. The utility owner Entergy is still operating the power plant, which releases radioactivity 24/7. Indian Point is on an earthquake fault line and one of the reactor’s operating license has just expired in 2013. At any nuclear power plants, danger is inherent and accidents will happen. While we observe an increasing number of natural disasters affecting our city, it’s no longer a question of if, but when Indian Point suffers an accident. And what about the massive amounts of radioactive waste? United States currently has no long-term solution for the highly radioactive nuclear waste being generated every day at over 100 nuclear reactors throughout the country.

We will not forget Fukushima.

Let’s connect and stand with the people in Japan and elsewhere struggling with the consequence of nuclear production.
Join us & Take action!

Organized by the members of: Brooklyn for Peace, Eco-Logic (WBAI-FM), Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition (IPSEC), Shut Down Indian Point Now!, The Manhattan Project, Todos Somos Japon
