Abolish nuclear power plant now! 7000 join the “NO NUKES FESTA 2009”


With people being more aware of global warming, a gathering for“denuclearization” was held at Meiji Park in central Tokyo on October 3, 2009, demanding the shift in the current energy policies centered on the use of nuclear power. According to the organizer, about 7000 people participated in the event. The gathering, “NO NUKES FESTA 2009”, was planned for the shift to nuclear-free energy and filled with various booths of trade unions, NGOs and other groups. Senryu, or satirical haikus from the general public were also displayed and subjected to vote by the “LaborNet Senryu Team”. The first section consisted of talk and music sessions, and some congresspersons like Fukushima Mizuho, the leader of the Social Democratic Party, delivered speeches in the second one. After the gathering, the participants started demonstrating through the Aoyama Avenue and the Omote Sando district with rhythmical dances and drum sounds that draw attention of passers-by.
