‘Let’s not contain our anger, raise our voices!”---7.9 Protest against restart of Sendai nuclear power plant

“10 million people’s action to say goodbye to nuclear power plants” held an emergency rally in Tokyo’s Yoyogi Park on July 9. It was because on the same day the Nuclear Regulatory Agency was expected to give its report on the safety screening results for the Sendai nuclear power plant. Although the turnout was smaller--at about 300--than usual due to the short notice and the rain, they marched through the streets of Shibuya to protest against resumption of the plant. OCHIAI Keiko called out to the people, “Don’t withhold your anger but refuel your anger and never give up.”  UEHARA Kimiko, former mayor of Kunitachi City in Tokyo, made a strong appeal, “Let us live! Let’s overcome political differences and rise together against the government!” (By Shinya)
