Stand with Japan

Greenpeace supporters will be holding over 100 Stand With Japan vigils across the United States on March 28th.

Thanks to everyone who has planned one. In the coming days, we will be going out to our members to get more events planned and more people attending as a sign of respect for the people of Japan who continue to struggle with the fallout from the massive earthquake that hit their country 13 days ago.
