Fukushima Third Anniversary Event at the Steynberg Gallery – Photos

The culmination of the Peace Walk was a public event hosted by San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace, featuring the movie “Women of Fukushima” and speakers Umi Hagitani and Jerry B. Brown, Director of the Safe Energy Project at World Business Academy.

The World Business Academy recently released a report on the health status of residents living near Diablo Canyon. (Please see full report at: worldbusiness.org )

The event ended on a spiritual and hopeful note, with Jimmy Joe of the Santa Barbara Chumash peoples reminding us what his ancestors have understood for eons – that we are all connected in this world: the people, all living things, as well as the land, water and air – and Reverend Sawada Gyosen offering one last prayer.
