Let's Demand the Government a Total Halt of Nuke Plants: Action Week for Denuclearization Called in September

The planning committee for "Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants: Actions by Ten Million People" issued an appeal on July 28 for participation in the Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants Action Week. The action week, planned for September 11-19, is to commemorate the sixth-month time since the Great East Japan Earthquake and the disaster of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant. In the appeal, the committee urges people's organizations working in citizen's rights, environment protection and labor issues to show their determinations to build the society free of nuclear power plants and demand the government to suspend the operation of nuclear power plants, take countermeasures against the radiation, and choose renewable energies for central sources of power, by organizing various events including rallies, parades, lectures and seminars. In Tokyo, two events have so far been planned for the week, i.e. the Be-in Tokyo 9.11 to be held in the Meiji Koen Park on September 11 and the Ten Million People's Action Parade also to be held in the Meiji Koen Park on September 19. The Goodbye to Nuclear Power Plants Ten Million Signatures, the signature campaign to achieve denuclearization and build a society that is powered mainly with natural energies, has also been kicked off.
