2000 ihmistä muisti Japanin uhreja Helsingissä / vigil in Helsinki

2000 ihmistä osallistui Japanin katastrofien uhreja muistavaan ja ydinvoimaa vastustavaan kulkueeseen eilen illalla. Tapahtumasta uutisoi mm. A-Studio: http://areena.yle.fi/video/1300306193363 ja Ajankohtainen Kakkonen: http://areena.yle.fi/video/1300219453440

Kesken mielenosoituksen utelias huuhkaja aiheutti kohahduksen mielenosoitusyleisössä lentämällä eduskuntatalon editse ja istuutumalla talon katon kulmalle tilannetta tarkastelemaan. Navajo-intiaanien keskuudessa pöllön asettuminen talon katolle merkitsee todella huonoa ennettä talon asukkaille. Eduskunta teki periaatepäätöksen luvan myöntämisestä kahdelle uudelle ydinreaktorille viime kesänä. Uudet vaalit ovat ensi kuussa.

Two thousand people remembered the victims of Japan’s catastrophies and demonstarted against nuclear power in a candle vigil yesterday in Helsinki. A great eagle owl joined in during the vigil by flying on front of the Finninsh house of parliament and by sitting on the corner of the roof to watch the crowd.

Navajo-people in North America believe that an owl sitting on a roof of a house is a very bad omen for the people living in the house. Last summer Finnish parliament decided to give permission for two more nuclear reactors. The new elections will be in April.

Olkiluotoblockade 2011 on Saturday August 20th!

Crowd of anti-nuclear citizens will gather this year on 20th of August on front of Olkiluoto nuclear power station to demonstrate for safer and more sustainable future. Few big companies share the profits made of nuclear power, but the consequences of the radioactive pollution are burdened on ordinary people all around the globe. When the decision-makers do not respect the good of people, people must take action. Join us!

The first Olkiluoto blockade action of 200 people took place 28th of August 2010. People were dancing, sitting, chatting, chaining, eating, singing and watching several performances on the roads on Olkiluoto. The event stopped the traffic in the main road leading to the power station for the whole day and also for shorter times the main highway nearby and smaller to the power station. Feel welcomed to join this year! There will be more information about the event and how to join soon in this blog.
