Anti-nuclear activists will hold a “Day of Remembrance & Warning” on Sunday in Burke County to recognize the one-year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that led to a nuclear meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima power plant.

The event, organized by Georgia Women’s Action for New Directions, will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. at Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church, 1582 Ben Hatcher Road, just a few miles from the Plant Vogtle nuclear plant that is undergoing an expansion.

Featured speakers are Japanese author-activist Shoji Kihara, Three Mile Island witness Pat Carter and Annie Laura Stephens, a resident of Shell Bluff. There will also be music and refreshments.
