We can’t celebrate the New Year! Women from Fukushima protest in front of TEPCO main office


On December 28, traditionally the last business day of the year, 40 women from Fukushima came to Tokyo on a bus to protest against TEPCO and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The action was dubbed “The Year-end Closing Action by Women”. More than 300 supporters gathered in front of the TEPCO main office. “Our lives and the environment were totally destroyed by the Fukushima crisis, yet TEPCO and the government are not held accountable for it. Moreover, they are now trying to restart the nuclear power plants and to export them. We can’t celebrate the New Year in such a mood! TEPCO should not close for a holiday!” With these convictions in our hearts, we demanded a meeting with the power company, but the company received us at the gate, leaving us standing in the cold. There were cries of anger: “Shame on TEPCO!”
The group moved to METI for the protest action and then to Ginza for a publicity action.They finally headed back to Fukushima at 4 p.m.

こんな気持ちじゃ年を越せない!~福島の女たち 東電前で抗議アクション

12月28日、福島の女たち40人がバスで上京し、東電・経産省に対して抗議アクションを行った。名付けて「女たちの御用納め行動!!」。支援者もあわせて300人以上が集まり、東電前は一杯になった。「人生・生活・環境をめちゃくちゃに破壊 しておいて、東電および政府への責任追及も十分には行われず、その上、原発の再稼働や輸出といった信じ難い暴挙が行われようとしている。『こんな気持ちじゃ、とても年を越せない!』『東電にも、仕事納めなんかさせない!』」という吹き上がる怒りにあふれたアクションになった。要請に対して東電は、玄関前の寒いところで対応するなど冷たい対応。「ひどい」「東電の態度は悪すぎる」と怒りの声が渦巻いた。一行は、その後経産省への抗議、そして銀座でのアピールを行い、16時過ぎにバスで福島に戻った。(西中誠一郎) 写真報告・動画(宮城南部参加者の声)・動画(撮影 黒鉄好) *写真=東電前で横断幕を掲げる福島の女たち
