89 years old nun joined hunger strike to be against restarting Ooi nuclear plant

 

Following up this article..JP Prime minister confirmed the necessity of restarting Ooi nuclear plant

89 years old Buddhist nun / writer Setouchi Jakucho joined hunger strike to protest against restarting Ooi nuclear plant on 5/2/2012. Anti-nuclear organization has been holding hunger strike since 4/17, in front of Ministry of economy, trade and industry.

She becomes 90 years old on 5/15/2012. Her doctor warned her it could be fatal, but she joined without informing her doctor of it. She says, she can not die with leaving the country killing people with nuclear.

Her comments are like these below,

90年生きてきて今ほど悪い日本はありません。このままの日本を若者に渡せない。

Through these 90 years, Japan has not been this evil like now. I can not pass this country for young generation.

90のばあさんがここに座ったら、マスコミに取り上げられ、それを見た若者が張り切って行動してくれると思って。

I expected mass media to pick up that a 90 years old granny sat here so young people may be inspired and act.

(大手メディアに向けて)あなた達記者も、命をかけて報じなさい

(To mass media) You journalists, Report it for dear life.

広島や長崎で原爆の被害を受けた日本が唯々諾々と原発を使っているのは恥ずかしい。原発はなくさないといけない

It’s such a shame for Japan to reply on nuclear as it’s told even after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We must abandon nuclear.

誰かに任せてなんで(原発が)無くなるんですか。自分たちで戦って無くさなきゃいけないんです。人任せにしてどうして無くなりますか。自分が動かないとダメですよ。

How could you count on others to expect someone to fight against nuclear. You must fight yourself. Don’t count on anyone, do it yourself.

(原発の再稼働について)何を考えているのかと思った。これまでにないくらい日本の状態は悪くなっている。

(About restarting Ooi nuclear plant) I couldn’t understand it. Japan has become the most evil ever.

これまで生きてきて、福島の原発事故のような恐ろしいことは戦争以外に一度もなかった。政府は再稼働をどうして焦るのか。

In my life, nothing more scary than Fukushima has happened apart from WWW2. I wonder why Japanese government is in such a hurry to restart Ooi nuclear plant.

原発事故は人災であり、同じことを繰り返しては子どもや若い人たちがかわいそうだ。

Nuclear disaster is man-made disaster. I’m so sorry for children and young people to repeat the same thing.
