We are asking that all of you contact your local representatives and President Obama and implore them to pressure the Japanese government to shut down Hamaoka and Tokai nuclear power plants. These plants are the two closest to Tokyo. We continue to have aftershocks that register from 4.0 to 7.0. We also are experiencing other quakes from epicenters close to and inside Tokyo. If these plants become affected it could be devastating for Japan as Tokyo has the largest concentration of our population. We would also request that the rest of the nuclear power plant facilities (all 55) be fully checked out for safety.

Contact them as soon as you can to help us.

Thank you ,

      Great progress! The PM of Japan has come out and said he wants Hamaoka Nuclear power plants shut down! Still there is more to do, as the PM cannot order the plant closed.

      President Obama: I feel so sad and horrified about the nuclear releases from the plants in Japan.

      I am imploring you to tell the Japanese government to shut down Hamaoka and Tokai nuclear plants now!

      In addition,the Japanese government needs to face the fact right now that these attempts to save the Fukushima plants are subjecting the workers, the entire city of Tokyo and beyond to additional radiation.

      All the Fukushima plants need to be entombed in concrete and recognized as lost. It is unconscionable to not do so now.

      What They're Coverning Up at Fukushima by Hirose Takashi

      Nuclear power is poison. Let's not make any more of it and let's stop spreading it all over the world.

      Diablo Canyon is NOT safe and that is well known. It needs to be shut down now.

      For our children's sake.

      Thank You

      I heard a Japanese citizen speak with the voice of Mother Earth. He said, "We have to choose to live in a nuclear free world."

      Please shut down the reactors until they can be checked for damage and we are all assured they can be operated without risk of damage from powerful aftershocks which continue. The Japanese people are strong. They can survive cold, blackouts, loss of their homes, but a permanently radioactive polluted homeland is not an option for you, or for your global neighbors. Holding you in the image of the highest and best good for all Japanese people at this tragic time.
