Purpose

On the one year anniversary of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, we hope you come down with friends, family and all loved ones in remembering this disaster and it's impact on not only the lives lost, but the toll this disaster will have on the future of humanity, and more to the point, our planet Earth.

All are invited as this is a peaceful gathering in remembrance and a chance to discuss changes that can be made to avert such disasters and what we can do to help with educating the public at large about nuclear energy, it's waste, and it's very real impact on our planet.

You are encouraged to bring a flower (sunflowers encouraged), candle, sign, flag, or just yourself. Let's gather together in peaceful solidarity for those affected by this horrendous disaster, after all, it will affect all of us.

“This is the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. Routine reporting of elevated radiation levels was suspended in the early days of the crisis,” says Dr. Tim Takaro, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. “Although information about Fukushima is largely absent from our news media, suggesting that the danger is over, we know that efforts to contain the four troubled reactors – at least three of which sustained explosions - continues. Without reliable data regarding the amount of radiation released into seawater and the atmosphere, and the resulting concentrations in our food chain, we are ill-equipped to predict the longterm consequences.”

We cannot just wash it away.

Look forward to seeing you there, thanks!
