Fukushima Anniversary Event

As the 4th Anniversary of the March 11, 2011 earthquake, Tsunami and meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan approaches, communities around the country, including the Bay Area recognize the tragedy, the ongoing problems, and the warning for the future. Despite opposition by many in Japan and around the world, Prime Minister Abe and his administration has stated its intent to restart nuclear reactors all over the country. Recently TEPCO, the company that operated the Fukushima Daiichi plant and is still decommissioning the plant, announced that it has been concealing an ongoing radiation leak at Fukushima for months. Additionally, huge challenges remain in the cleanup of the contaminated region.

You can join an action in front of the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco on March 11, 2015 from 3-4:30pm to deliver a letter to Prime Minister Abe. Additionally activists will be asking PG&E to shutdown California's Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant.

Location: Location will be 275 Battery Street, Suite 2100, San Francisco.

Good Friday Action

People concerned about the continuing development of nuclear weapons will come to the corner of Vasco Road and Patterson Pass Road, outside the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Laboratory, for an interfaith prayer service followed by nonviolent acts of witness. Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech given on April 4, 1967, the theme of the gathering will be "Beyond Nuclear Weapons, Beyond Empire, Beyond Racism".

Speaker, David Hartsough, is a leader in nonviolent efforts to end war and injustice. A Quaker, David Hartsough is Executive Director of Peaceworkers in San Francisco and co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce. Hartsough met Martin Luther King during the Montgomery bus boycott in 1956 and has been active in civil rights and the anti-nuclear movement since the 1950s. He is author of the newly published book, Waging Peace: Global Adventures of a Lifelong Activist.

A community gathering at Asbury United Methodist Church follows at about 10:00 am. Light refreshments will be served. This is a chance to share our work and actions.
