3rd Anniversary of 3.11 vigil/protest in front of the Japanese Embassy, London

Dear anti-nuclear power activists, supporters and friends,

It is the 3rd anniversary of our 3.11 leafleting vigil and protest on 7th August 2015. As it is a special occasion for all of us, we would like to organise our monthly READ-OUT of our
statement to the Japanese Prime Minister on this day instead of 31st July 2015.
.
In August in Japan it is reported that Kyushu Electric Power Company plans to apply to regulators for the final ‘applied safety inspection’ of Sendai nuclear power plant 1 on 3rd August. This check is expected to take one week, making 10th August a potential start-up date.
.
Another 20 reactors are behind Sendai in the restart process, which is expected to gradually speed up after the first few units are back in normal operation. The Japanese government envisages a return to using nuclear power for 20-22 % of electricity by 2030 as part of a plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 26% compared to fiscal year 2013.
.
Under such circumstances, it is very important that we keep up raising our voices to show our opposition to Nuclear Power in Japan.
 .
Himawari JAN UK, Kick Nuclear and CND are planning to organise the monthly READ-OUT of the protest statement to the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and send the protest statement to the President of TEPCO on Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant disasters since 11 March 2011.
 .
We will start our protest vigil from 10:00am and the statement read-out from 11:30 am on 7th August 2015 ( Friday ) in front of the Japanese Embassy.
 .
Anti-Nuclear Power speeches/songs/poems are also very welcome.
 .
The READ-OUT to TEPCO does not take place from this month as their office at Berkley House is moved to the unknown location last week. However, our protest statement will be sent to the TEPCO Head Office in Tokyo, Japan.
 .
Venue: In front of the Japanese Embassy.
Nearest station: Green Park ( Piccadilly Line, Zone 1 ), 3 minutes walk towards Hyde Park.
Date and Time : 7th August 2015 ( Friday ) from 10:00 am till 12:30 pm.
 .
8月10日に日本では川内原発の再稼動が予想されています。これに続いて、20基の原発が再稼動に入ると云われています。

  1. THIS IS IMPORTANT

    ACTION NEEDED:

    Are you aware that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering a rule change that would adopt HORMESIS as the radiation-exposure-model instead of the present “Linear No-Threshold” radiation model?

    HORMESIS is the idea that low-level radiation is “good for you.”

    The NRC is also considering other recommendations that would allow citizens to be exposed to as much radiation as a nuclear worker; and to allow children and pregnant woman to be exposed to that amount of radiation, too. (it is well known that children and fetuses/embryos are very sensitive to radiation)

    The NRC is requesting COMMENTS from the public on this until September 8th.

    Can you please raise public awareness about this?

    This really needs a strong vocal response against it and LOTS OF COMMENTS.

    Here is the link to submit comments, and it also explains it further —>

    https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/06/23/2015-15441/linear-no-threshold-model-and-standards-for-protection-against-radiation

    And here is a link for those who want to submit their comment ANONYMOUSLY —>

    http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NRC-2015-0057-0010

    There is also a good interview by LibbeHaLevy of Nuclear Hotseat who says:

    QUOTE:

    “Diane D’Arrigo of Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) on the current Petition in front of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to change radiation evaluation standards from current linear no-threshold to the false science of hormesis (no – whore-YOU-sis) which tries to fool people into believing that “radiation is GOOD for you!”

    Comments are needed before September 8 on the NRC website. HERE’S HOW YOU DO IT:
    •Go to: Rulemaking.Comments@nrc.gov
    •In the subject line, make certain to include the ID number:
    NRC-2015-0057-0010
    •OR – Go directly to: http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=NRC-2015-0057-0010
    •CLICK on the “Comment Now” button.

    Then give the NRC a piece of your mind. You don’t have to make it fancy; they count number of responses more than the content. MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD NOW!”

    END QUOTE

    I hope you will choose to not remain silent on this vital matter, and encourage everyone you know to say NO MORE RADIATION EXPOSURE!

    Thank you.

    ANYONE CAN COMMENT.
