The Japanese Women As They Complete Their Sit-In In Tokyo



Aileen Mioko Smith sent me this photograph of the final moments of the protest this week in Tokyo.


Alieen writes that the people in the photo above are saying:

Women Don't Need Nuclear Power!
女は原発いらないぞ~う!
Women Will Protect the Children!
女は子どもを守るぞ~う!
Women Will Change the World!
女は世界を変えるぞ~う!

The wool ball at in the center of the circle was woven by Fukushima women. It got so
long they encircled METI with it. Then women from all of Japan
continued to weave it until it became a huge ball. On the last day it was
changed into the earth and was born at 10:30am, Saturday, November 5th, 2011.
It is now traveling around Japan and will circle
the entire earth.

In addition: please sign the petition to save the children of Fukushima.  The mothers want the Japanese government to evacuate the children from dangerous areas of Fukushima city.  Please help them by signing on.
