the first thing that i do in the morning is, (i hate routines but oh well) switch on my monitor and check my emails. i hate checking my emails cos i know there will be more things for me to do on top of the things that i am already struggling to finish! these things are usually not as exciting as the things i that i would like to do.
this one interesting email awaited me in my inbox. the subject was typed all in caps. you know it is serious business when it is all in caps.
APRIL 10th “NO MORE FUKUSHIMA”: GLOBAL CALL FOR SOLIDARITY ACTIONS AGAINST NUCLEAR PLANTS
i have been reading and also reading to others about the nuclear catastrophe that has struck japan. i guess the worst article which i read was either yesterday or two days ago about the atomic samurai. the atomic samurais who have been hailed as heroes are the folks who are on a suicide mission to clean the nuclear plant. these 180 men are prepared to die. i just read an article which reported two men have died and the cause of death has not been disclosed. (well, i would like to say that these two men were killed/murdered by the state and really, do we really need the state to produce a report to state the obvious?) in my head i am just like, “where are the CEOs and whoever at tepco who have been making money out this plant? i dont see them cleaning anything.”
these 180 men are victims of the state’s greed and pride to come out as champions of this catastrophe. the state is orchestrating a suicide mission and i dont know how many more people have to die because for this.
it is also interesting to read that email this morning cos only yesterday i was reading about the protest in klang against the nuclear plant that the state wants to build there. isnt it amazing how nothing goes through the state administrators thick skulls? you are bombarded with so many things thats happening in japan with this nuclear plant almost everyday and yet you wanna build one here?
this April 10 will be the day of global action in solidarity with the people in japan to shut down the nuclear power plants. i urge you and your friends to come together in solidarity to stand up with the people in japan.
