Ajisai protest on every Friday has been interrupted by the blockade of hundreds of police and riot.
145 lawyers following Mr. Utsunomiya, the ex-chairman of Japan Federation of Bar Associations offered the Metropolitan Police Department to remove the barricade of the roadway in front of official residence.
They handed the protest note to the Metropolitan Police Department under the joint signatures of 145 lawyers. They state, it restricts the freedom of expression and it makes it more dangerous.
On 7/29/2012, a protestor witnessed police remove the barricade by themselves however.
This is today’s (7/29/2012) protest to surround National Diet. Around 19:30, this is the moment when the barricade was collapsed in front of the entrance street, but this is because police took away the barricade by themselves because of too much people.
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.
