2) 9/11 SF Rally-Speak Out On 9/11! , Sunday, September 11, 2016, at 3:00 p.m. Japanese Consulate, 275 Battery St./California St., San Francisco
Update From Japan By No Nukes Action Leader Chizu Yamada

On Sunday September  11 at 3:00 PM , people will speak out at the San Francisco Japanese consulate to demand the closure of all nuclear plants in Japan and the evacuation of the children and families in Fukushima. While Americans remember 9/11 another deadly man made disaster like Fukushima could take place at any moment as more nuclear plants open up five years after the Fukushima man made disaster. It was a "dirty" nuclear bomb that blew up and contaminated people in Japan and around the world.
With US support the  Japanese Abe government is re-opening more and more nuclear plants despite the dangers of another Fukushima happening that could even destroy the entire country. Even former Japanese prime minister Koizumi has called Abe a liar for telling the Olympic committee that the Fukushima meltdowns had been solved in order to get the Olympics. In fact the government is telling the people that they can "overcome radiation" and also that Fukushima has been "decontaminated". These lies and propaganda points are simply to get people to even think about the growing dangers to themselves and their families.
At the same time, no US Congress person has even challenged these actions despite the dangers to people in California and the west coast of another meltdown in Japan. Secretary Hillary Clinton and Obama are also supporting the militarization of Japan and also spending billions on modernizing US nuclear power and US nuclear weapons. The militarization of Japan and Asia is also leading to another world war. The Abe government has passed a secrecy law that prevents information coming out about the growing cancer epidemic and it is pushing to remove the peace clause in their constitution prohibiting imperial war. The US again  is supporting the further militarization of Asia which will lead to another world war.  The government has also removed tents near the prime minister's office to stop any further regular public activity against the restarting of the nuclear power plants.
Another Fukushima could not only destroy Japan but also further contaminate the Asian rim with radioactive waste. The Fukushima radioactive contamination continues to flow into the Pacific ocean and this contamination is threatening  the health and safety of our hemispheres and world.
US sailors that were in the area at the time of Fukushima  have also been contaminated and are now getting serious cases of cancer and other diseases. They are also suing TEPCO for damages.
We must continue to speak out against the danger of Fukushima and other nuclear plants to the people of Japan and the world of these dangerous nuclear plants and call for the closure of all nuclear plants around the world.

3) Take Back Gandhi's 9/11, Sunday, September 11, 2016, 5:30 p.m.- 7:00 p.m.
At the Gandhi Statue, in the Ferry Plaza, behind the Ferry Building at the end of Market Street, 141 Embarcadero, San Francisco (Following the monthly Fukushima Protest 3:30 Rally at the Japanese Consulate, 275 Battery, San Francisco)
Take Back Gandhi's 9/11. Satyagraha - Truth Force was born when people gathered together, in their struggle against empire and racism in South Africa. On September 11, 1906, at a public meeting attended by 3000 people where Gandhi spoke, Sheth haji Habib, an old Muslim resident of South Africa, was inspired to consciously speak out and state his decision to act in defiance of an unjust law, that targeted the Indian population of South Africa. Habib declared his willingness to suffer the consequences in a spiritually-endowed fight for justice in the name of God. The theory of satyagraha sees means and ends as inseparable. The means used to obtain an end are wrapped up in and attached to that end. Therefore, it is contradictory to try to use unjust means to obtain justice or to try to use violence to obtain peace. Satyagraha is a synthesis of the Sanskrit words satya (meaning "truth") and Agraha ("pursuit of"). Gandhi believed that life itself is a the pursuit of truth. For Gandhi, satyagraha became strength in practicing non-violent methods, or in his words "the Force which is born of Truth and Love or non-violence."
On September 11, 2006, there were efforts to rekindle the strength of Gandhi's vision for peace. The award winning film, Gandhi was rereleased and shown in 64 venues, and a short film Satyagraha - 100 Years of Nonviolence See- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVdVBHvAs2A debuted, followed a year later by a Choose Peace campaign.
On September 11, 2010 in San Francisco, the poet/activist/writer Arnie Passman began the Take Back Gandhi's 9/11 as a worldwide celebration of Peace and Love recognizing Gandhi's adherence to satyagraha. Arnie noted that his favorite definition of satyagraha was Martin Luther King Jr.'s description of it as "Love in Action." 
Arnie Passman has been a peace activist for over 50 years. For the past ten years, he has been organizing poetry readings at the San Francisco Gandhi statue on the mahatma's birthday (october 2). Contact Arnie at 510) 845-5481 or pazmaux1@gmail.com
