- Sheila Parks, convener of the weekly vigil, ON BEHALF OF PLANET EARTH, at the Japanese Consulate in Boston writes that they will be doing a special vigil to remember the 3rd anniversary of Fukushima. We will have special signs and/or banners and we will leaflet. We will invite a large range of people and groups. This special vigil will be on Thursday, March 13th, 8:15AM - 9:15AM, which is the regular day and time of our weekly vigil and we will be at our regular place. Please, join us, at 600 Atlantic Ave, corner of Summer Street, at South Station (take the Red Line). The Consulate is on the 22nd floor of the Federal Reserve Building.
As for the rally itself, a big thanks to Matsumoto san and the rest of the organizers. The police made us change routes before trying to shut us down. But the rally progressed despite a few arrests and a couple of scuffles with authorities.
The following week, September 19th 2011, in Meiji Park, we were 60 000 strong. On that day, Ruiko Muto and Taro Yamamoto inspired us, supported by hundreds of Fukushima victims that came down to Tokyo specifically for that rally.
These are the two best rallies I have ever attended to.
— at Shinjuku koen.
