From Fukushima to the Four Corners:
Break the nuclear chain, from Japan to Arizona!
WHEN: SUNDAY, MARCH 9TH – 1P
WHERE: NW corner of 5th Street and Van Buren, Downtown Phoenix
Join us to learn more about the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the nuclear industry in the Southwest, to find out about different ways to get involved, and to connect with others who want to build a sustainable future beyond nuclear power/weapons.
On March 9th, in conjunction with anti-nuclear events being held in Japan and in other cities in Arizona, we will meet in front of Arizona Public Service (APS) in Downtown Phoenix, O’odham territory, to raise awareness about the destructive consequences of producing nuclear energy, and to show support for the communities being directly effected by the nuclear industry, in Japan and in the Southwest. APS is one of the main owners of the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant, which is only 45 miles West of Central Phoenix.
Community members, youth, activists, scientists, and many others will touch on all aspects of the nuclear chain, from mining, to mills, to power plants, Los Alamos, waste repositories, and the social and environmental consequences of pursuing nuclear.
All people who believe that nuclear power is not the answer are welcome to join and participate.
A portable PA and a megaphone will be provided. A table with letter writing materials, nuclear info, banner and sign making materials will be available.
