This is a critical time to contact the government in Japan. Please. On Sunday they are scheduled to re-start the first nuclear power plant since the Fukushima meltdown. We need a huge outcry internationally. Here is the URL for sending an email to the Prime Minister of Japan.
All over Japan, reactors were slowly shutdown (for regular yearly inspections--something which is not done in the US, fyi ), following the tsunami, until not a single one was operating. Today there were protests of 100,000 (more or less, depending on your news source) in Tokyo, against the re-starting of the reactors. Go to the address above to send a comment to the Prime Minister of Japan.
The NY Times article about the protest is here.
