Huge protest is held every Friday in Tokyo against the restart of Ohi nuclear plant.
Government is trying to control it by having police and riot police blockade the streets, but they haven’t found the solution yet.

An executive of police revealed that official residence planned to ban subway from stopping at the near station.
Most of the people join the protest by using subway.

The executive talks “Official from official residence have asked me if we can ban subway from stopping at the near subway station so protestors can’t gather. They were serious about that idea. I was shocked.”

Noda planned to meet the organizers of the protest on 8/8/2012, but it was postponed until 8/10/2012 because No-confidence resolution in the Cabinet was submit by opposition party. [Link]

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.
