March 11 – Day of Remembrance and Warning

On March 11, 2011 the world's eyes were on Japan as the largest nuclear disaster in history began to unfold. Now, less then a year later, the world's eyes are on Georgia. On February 9,   the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, without reviewing new safety concerns resulting from the Fukushima disaster, approved plans for the first two nuclear reactors built in the U.S. in thirty years to be constructed at Plant Vogtle in Burke County, Georgia.



Join us on Sunday, March 11, 2012
Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church
1582 Ben Hatcher Road
Waynesboro, GA 30830

We'll hear the stories of Burke County residents and Japanese survivors. We'll hear music and poetry and we'll hold a short remembrance vigil. The event will take place from 2-6 pm Sunday, March 11 in Burke County, Georgia.
