大飯原発再稼働断固反対ハンスト&デモ in NY!
Convergence at Friday June 29 at 5PM
@Consulate of Japan in NY: 299 Park Avenue (at 48th Street) NYC [Map]
Japan announced that Kansai Electric (HQ:Osaka) will restart the Ooi Nuclear Power Plant in Fukui on July 1st. Japan has now been enjoying nuke-free time for the first time since 40 years ago. On May 5th (Children’s Day in Japan) this year, when all the nuclear reactors stopped, Japan was able to prove itself that nuclear energy isn’t about energy needs. It is, as it has always been, an enbodyment of economic and political interests. We have never needed it! So we can still stop the restart!
45,000 people gathered in front of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s residence in Tokyo last Friday to protest his decision to restart the two nuclear reactors. This Friday, there will be even more people on the streets throughout Japan. We are going to begin a hunger strike in solidarity and to stop the restart. Please join us, even if you don’t fast with us, come and raise your voice! -The Hydrangea Revolution has begun.
“We won’t pay for your crisis.” Once this phrase raced around the world. But now we should say: “We will pay for nothing.” For we ourselves are the crisis and catastrophe.
The Lehman Shock, the Greek crisis, the Fukushima nuclear disaster (…) – who will take charge of the outcomes of these catastrophes? The only thing that is certain is that in each calamity we have become more and more indebted to the IMF or global financial capital. Inasmuch as not only our homes and schools but also all institutions both public and private are relying on bank loans, all of our labor is directly channeled into the payment of debts.
