======== VIGIL IN SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE OF FUKUSHIMA =========================

*When:* Thursday, March 13, 2014, 8:15 am to 9:15 am *Where: *Japanese  
Consulate • Atlantic Ave and Summer Street, Boston • South Station T
Dear friends,
You could really make a big difference in the lives of the ordinary people of  
Japan, people like you and us, who have been suffering immeasurably for three  
years from Fukushima. SIMPLY BY SHOWING UP. 
The Japanese people have asked people worldwide to stand in solidarity with  
them on the third anniversary of Fukushima.  The exact anniversary date is  
March 11, 2011, and there are events all over the world throughout the week,  
starting on March 9 in many places in   
Europe. http://fukushimathirdanniversaryevents.blogspot.com/ [1] 
On Thursday, March 13, here in Boston, we will be standing at the Japanese  
Consulate in solidarity with the people of Japan. We ask you to join  
us*, this one single morning*, to get up really early, dress very warmly and  
come and stand *for one hour* on a very cold (most likely) corner, hold a  
banner, make your own sign, tweet, livestream, donate money to help pay for  
our new banners for this event and ongoing and to copy these letters and hand  
them out that day, bring a friend or two, bring your children, bring your  
grandchildren, write a letter to the Prime Minister of Japan - Shinzo Abe -   
and the Japanese Consul General here in Boston - Akira Muto -  (one letter  
addressed to both). Each person will read aloud to the Consul General their  
letter that morning before they get sent off to Abe in Tokyo by the Consul  
General.  *If you are going to write and read your letter, you must include  
your name and full address.
*The vigil is 8:15AM - 9:15AM, at the corner of Atlantic Ave and Summer  
Street, in front of the Federal Reserve Bldg at South Station (take the red  
line or commuter rail). The Japanese Consulate is on the 22nd floor. We will  
be outside the building.
*/Don't you want to tell your children, grandchildren and all the children of  
the world that you did everything you possibly could to stop the global  
tragedy, catastrophe and nightmare of Fukushima/*.?
Please, email and/or call with any questions.
Kindest regards,
 From all of us who vigil weekly ON BEHALF OF PLANET EARTH
