Do not restart Sendai Nuclear Plant!
Some 16,000 people came to “Farewell to Nuclear Plants” rally at a Tokyo park on Sept. 23, carrying a slogan, “Do not restart Sendai Nuclear Plant. We will not forget Fukushima.” “The Abe administration is putting many ill policies into effect,” KAMATA Satoshi, reportage writer, said at the event. “His cabinet is dead as TANAKA Shozo said. Abe does not listen to people’s voices and tries to make profit for nuclear reactor manufacturers and utilities by restarting nuclear plants.” Kamata also pointed out misreporting by the Asahi Shimbun on the interview with YOSHIDA Masao, Fukushima Daiichi chief. “Yoshida simply did not have a grasp of all his employees after they moved. Nuclear pushers are beautifying how well they persisted. We will never give up. We have a good grasp of our future. Let’s take action for our future.” (By Y) Photo＝Fukushima farmers raise flags made of straw.
