This is the first ever appeal by Kick Nuclear to its supporters, since we are rapidly running out of money!
So, why should you support us?
Over the last three years plus we have carried out the following:
Ever since the beginning of August 2012 we have held a weekly picket outside both the Japanese Embassy and the nearby Company (TEPCO), in collaboration with Japanese Against Nuclear UK (JAN UK. ) This picket has given out hundreds of leaflets in both English and Japanese each week reminding passers-by of the Fukushima disaster and, in the light of the dangers this and previous nuclear disasters reveal, calling for an end to nuclear power in the UK.
The group also produces a quarterly update giving details of the continuing disaster at Fukushima, also both in English and Japanese, hundreds of which are also given out each week at the above pickets and also distributed at other events. In the past three years, again in collaboration with JAN UK and with the support of CND, we have organised events to mark the successive anniversaries of the Fukushima Disaster. In all cases these have consisted of three parts: a high-powered meeting in the House of Commons on the eve of the anniversary, with leading anti-nuclear scientists and eye-witnesses of the disaster or its aftermath; a vigil opposite the Japanese Embassy on the evening of the anniversary; and a march on Parliament on a neighbouring Saturday passing the Japanese Embassy and the TEPCO offices, followed by a rally with speakers and performers opposite Parliament.
Other actions we’ve organised include producing and distributing leaflets outside World Nuclear Association and other pro-nuclear Conferences and organising public meetings addressed by scientists. We have also supported and taken part in marches against climate change.
We hold monthly organising meetings and more frequent ones with JAN UK in the lead up to the annual Fukushima anniversary events.
We also liaise with other antinuclear groups – CND, South West Against Nuclear, Radiation Free Lakeland, Close Capengurst Campaign, Local Authorities against Nuclear, and the Nuclear Trains Action Group of London Region CND.
