“Kanteimae” (=in front of the official residence of Japanese prime minister)demonstration was held on 6/22/2012. According to the organizer, 45,000 people joined, mass media reported it was 40,000 people. Metropolitan Police Department reported it to be 11,000 people.
The line of people reached 700m.
Mr. Higashihara, a Salaryman from Tsuchiura Ibaraki commented he knew the schedule of the demonstration on facebook. They haven’t even decided the way of processing nuclear waste, can’t understand why they have to restart Ohi nuclear plant. He thought he should say something.
They are planning to collect 100,000 people for the next Friday.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
