FUNABASHI, Chiba Prefecture–Hundreds of people rallied in Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s constituency here June 24 to protest against his decision to reactivate two reactors at the Oi nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture.

The demonstration was organized by several citizens groups calling for a nuclear-free Japan.

Organizers called for supporters to march through the streets of Funabashi to protest Noda’s decision on June 16 to bring the two reactors back online.

A website announcing the planned demonstration said, “Let’s convey our opinions to the prime minister’s hometown.”

Organizers estimated that more than 2,000 people took part, some carrying placards which read, “Saikado wa Damena Noda” (It is not good to restart reactors). The last word is a pun on the prime minister’s surname.




About this site

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.
