Remember Fukushima! Don’t restart nukes!: 32,000 joined anti-nuke action

Even three years have passed since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, 140,000 people are still forced to evacuate without being able to return home. On March 9, 2014, 32,000 participated in the “Joint Action for a Nuke-Free Society” hosted by three organizations including the Metropolitan Coalition Against Nukes. It was held at Hibiya Park in central Tokyo. There were desperate reports from Fukushima, Fukui and Ehime where there are nuclear power plants. SAKAMOTO Ryuichi, a world-renowned musician, introduced a memorial song he made after the Great East Japan Earthquake. After the rally, the participants marched to the parliament to hold another rally there. Jinta-ra Muta, a band of chindon-ya musical sandwichmen, sang “Unyielding People”, and KAN Naoto, former prime minister, and SHII Kazuo, the leader of the Japanese Communist Party, strongly criticized the pro-nuclear policies of the current Abe administration.

On March 8, another anti-nuke rally was held in the Kansai district, and the above action in Tokyo was followed by a subsequent one on March 15, which was joined by more than 5,000. Thus, various events were held to commemorate the third anniversary of the Fukushima disaster in all around Japan.
