Restart of nuclear power plants is bogus! Broadcasting from the Anti-Nuke Tent

On July 5, 2013, YANAGIDA Makoto (center in the photo) of Tampopo-sha Anti-Nuke Plaza said in front of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, “In Germany, demonstrations of more than 300,000 people led to the total phase-out of nuclear power. Japan also needs to build such a large movement as in Germany”. He also referred to the issue of applications for the restart of nuclear power plants in Japan. “The Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) approved the restart of the Oi Nuclear Power Plant that was never supposed to be allowed to restart. Oi has no seawall, quake-proof building or road for evacuation. The only thing the plant has is an active fault. This shows how untrustworthy the safety regulations of the NRA are. On July 8, four electric power companies in Japan applied the restart of six nuclear power plants they operate, but residents living near the plants will come to Tokyo to protest. Make our voice be heard to the NRA”, said Yanagida. (M)
