Melbourne based Japanese for Peace is hosting a memorial event to mark the anniversary of the Tohoku Major Earthquake in Japan and the beginning of the ongoing nuclear disaster in Fukushima.

We will also appeal to the Australian community that Australian uranium has been fuelling Fukushima, and we must stop the mining and export of this unsustainable and dangerous resource so that Australia will not fuel any more future nuclear disasters.

All concerned people are invited to participate and express our solidarity with people in Japan who are still suffering from the ongoing nuclear disaster.

The event includes a number of speakers and performers, such as a Japanese wadaiko drum group and an indigenous acoustic singer. The rally will be followed by a march through the CBD area led by a Japanese drum group.

Please bring along banners, boards, music instruments or anything to express your creativity. The event will be broadcast live via the internet to show our action to people in Japan who are also organising nation wide events later on the same day.
