We will fold 1,000 origami cranes but we won’t fold on nuclear power
On Saturday, 26 March 2011 TheCompensators* will support the Germany-wide protests against nuclear power and for true climate protection. Recent events in Japan have once again shown the inherent risks of nuclear energy as well as how uncontrollable this technology is.
TheCompensators* don’t consider nuclear power to be a clean source of energy nor is it a solution in the fight against climate change, because it delays the development of renewable energies. These, however, are necessary in order to stem climate change. This is also the goal which TheCompensators* are aiming for with their involvement in emission trading.
Through our initiative at the protest on Saturday we would also like to express our sincere sympathies with the Japanese people. We will follow a Japanese tradition which states that the person who folds 1,000 origami cranes will be granted a wish.
It is our wish to stop the use of nuclear energy, to promote green technologies and to combat climate change effectively. That is why we will set up our stall at the concluding rally of the anti-nuclear march in Straße des 17. Juni in Berlin. There we will attempt to fold 1,000 emissions certificates into origami cranes – and we count on your help in this!
If you are not in Berlin, there are other places in Germany where you can participate in anti-nuclear protest marches. You will find more information here (in German).
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
