Dear Anti-Nuclear Power activists/supporters and friends,

On 20 June, about 30 members from London Region CND including 4 Japanese supporters from JAN UK (Japanese Against Nuclear) and Nipponzan Myohoji participated in the MAD Hatters Tea Party to protest against Nuclear Weapons. This was organized at the entrance to the Burghfield AWE (Atomic Weapon Establishment) where the UK Nuclear Bombs are assembled.

On the same day in Japan the Nuclear Regulation Authority ( NRA ) said that No.1 and No.2 reactors at Kansai Electric’s Takahama plant can extend operation for up to 20 years because they meet safety guidelines. This decision was quickly denounced by Greenpeace, which said the move goes far beyond regulatory failure.

With strong solidarity with the Japanese Anti-Nuclear movements including every Friday evening Anti-Nuclear Power demo in front of Prime Minister’s official residence and the Diet in Tokyo, we, JAN-UK, KickNuclear and CND are planning to organise another monthly protest vigil and the statement read-out to the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and TEPCO on 24 June 2016.

Our Friday vigil will start from 10.00 AM and the statement read-out from 11.30 AM. We will then move on to the TEPCO office ( 14-18 Holborn near Chancery Lane station ). There we will have a vigil and hand in the statement to TEPCO from 13.00 to 13.30 PM.

Anyone is welcome to join in with Anti-Nuclear/Peace messages, songs, poems, etc.
