Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 10:45 am to 12:15 pm | Cost: FREE*
*Free to participate, but RSVP is requested

Ocean Beach Parking Lot | Great Highway and Lincoln Ave., San Francisco, CA


Join nearly 1,000 people to lend your voice (actually, your body) to a massive human mural on the beach with 100-foot-tall letters that will be photographed by helicopter. It’s like a flashmob, but with a great purpose.

This action will let the world know that radioactive contamination from the Japanese nuclear disaster at Fukushima which is reaching our shores on the West Coast.

What to Expect:
On October 19th, hundreds of people will align their bodies to create a human mural spelling out “FUKUSHIMA IS HERE” and then be photographed from the air by helicopter.  Please arrive in the vicinity by 10:45 a.m. Helicopter overhead at noon sharp. Event finished by approx 12:15.

Site Location:
The message will be centered approximately 200 yards north of the intersection of Fulton and the Great Highway, halfway between the Cliff House and the Beach Chalet restaurant (public bathroom in the Beach Chalet’s public lobby). A concrete sea wall runs along the beach, with short, numbered stairways leading down to the sand. The event will be centered near Stairway 12, and will stretch out from there, both north and south.

Participants get a postcard 
One image from the event will be made into a large-sized postcard. If you would like one of these postcards mailed to you, you MUST print your address onto a mailing label (provided at the event) and drop it into one of the POSTCARD ADDRESSES buckets that volunteers will be holding.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
