Thanks for sending stories, photos, and/or videos of your own local Fukushima Fallouts. We hope more of you will share, so we can all see one anothers' actions and can share our experience with folks who want to organize Fallouts and with the people of Japan.   
Please do write us and send your stories and images to BEST(at)MATRR(dot)org.
Thanks to all who have participated in this show of solidarity with the people of Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, and to all who oppose the financial and environmental debt nuclear power leaves as a legacy to the future, and who believe we have a right to oppose the suffering nuclear power is causing people in our world now.

1st Anniversary of the Fukushima Disaster

"The disaster at the
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
released 168 times the amount of radiation
that was released by the atomic blast
on Hiroshima in 1945 . . ."

March 12, 2012

About 18 people gathered at Big Springs Park downtown for the 1st Anniversary of Fukushima. We talked about the people of Japan and about nuclear power issues at Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant,  just 28 miles from where we were, which is the same flawed GE Mark I nuclear plant design as the Fukushima Daiichi plant.  A lady from Fukushima, whose family was from Fukushima prefecture, was there to speak about the situation, and how difficult it is for the Japanese people to get news about the plant and the radiation they are being exposed to. The Fallouts were spearheaded and the Fallouts.org website created by Mothers Against Tennessee River Radiation (MATRR.org)
