An Australian National day of Action Against Uranium is planned for March 11 to commemorate the commencement of the ongoing Fukushima crisis.
Friends of the earth Australia has also released an important paper by Dr Jim Green outlining the scandals and failures that led to the disaster: "Japan's Nuclear Scandals and the Fukushima Disaster" [here]
Radioactivity has been detected in the food and water supply and severe restrictions now apply to foodstuff grown in Japan.
The Japanese government and electricty company TEPCO were complicit in hiding the extent of the problem from the affected people and have been slow to offer compensation.
There is reason to believe that it was Australian uranium that fuelled the reactors that melted down in Fukushima.
An Australia-wide commemoration and National Day of Action Against Uranium will be held on March 11.
BRISBANE: A working bee and brainstorm for the March 11 action will be held on March 7 at 10am, FoE Brisbane office, 20 Burke St, Woolloongabba.
