Stop Reopening Japan Nuclear Plants Threatening Another Fukushima & Defend The Fukushima Children and Families

Despite the danger of another major earthquake in Japan the Abe government continues to push to reopen Japan’s nuclear power plants. Many of these plants are over 40 years old and increasingly dangerous. Even three past prime ministers are againt reopening these plants but the government and militarists not only want to open up the plants but develop nuclear weapons.

We urge all opponents of nuclear power and remilitarization of Japan and Asia to attend the rally and speak-out.
