“During WWW2,I was scared of the government like all the other people.We didn’t want to look like renegades against the nation,so a lot of Japanese went to the battle field and died.Now alternative war has started.Nuc is the weapon.We must never start it again.
During the WWW2,I deeply regretted.I don’t want to repeat that again,that’s why I’m here.”

“My own estimate was somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000. The police tried to delay the marchers so long that they would just go home. Hours standing in the hot sun trying to start the march. Some people did give up but most did not. And this time, the big difference from 11 June was that nearly all the ordinary people out in Aoyama, Omotesando and Shibuya were supporting the marchers. Waving and smiling and chanting in support. The next one we need 500,000.

Well, the police used their normal tactics: delay and disburse, and make the marchers march in a tiny lane on the left-hand side. They made us wait in the park between one and four hours. When we fianlly got onto the road, there were private cars dirving up and down taking up three out of four lanes on the back streets (not main roads) around Jingu Gaien. So it took us about two and a half hours to get to Aoyama Dori. And we were probably in the first third of marchers, so some people waited much longer. Anyway, there were tens of thousands of ordinary families and young and old people. People from all over Japan came for this rally. People sick of all the lies and criminal acts by the nucleocracy that owns and runs Japan. The media pretends it’s all over but more people are realizing the hell has only just begun. Very few non-marchers in the city for shopping or whatever were giving us strange looks. Nearly everyone smiled and waved their support. The organisers can be proud, and the participants. This is just the beginning.”(added 7:10  9/20/2011)



















  1. Why are people only thinking of MONEY, while the word has a far greater problem. Even in The Netherlands there was nothing on t.v. Only Greece.
    In Belgium there was also a demonstration. Nothing on t.v. there. Why!!
    The future of mij children and grandchildren is falling apart!

  2. It’s not going to save Tokyo but it’s good to see. It’s going to rattle the industry, but one country after another needs to phase it out.

  3. So good to see so many people demonstrating ! it seems japanese people are getting more and more aware and determined. I hope the politicians will listen to them. Fight for your rights !

  4. this is the best b’day gift i’ve ever had! great photos and coverage. it’s so empowering. i love the people in japan, keep up the good fight, the people in the world are with you, and you are the spark. praying for japan, praying for children’s evacuation. it’s a tough time and crazy people running the countries everywhere still. but we are the people who see the truth will prevail, and we are the people will take a charge. see what’s happening in the street corners of Wall Street:

    peace, love and joy.

  5. it would seem with such sweeping mainstream media blackouts regarding Japan’s ‘china syndrome” and the destruction of the gulf of mexico, that the american and the japanese governments are expecting people to quietly lie down and die either from cancer or poisoned gas in the air..I as a citizen have this gut level feeling that its not quite gonna play out that way..when the countless masses learn and really understand that these two governments have willfully initiated their death process out of greed and cruelty..the masses might well transform into an unstoppable force..what will they have to loose once they learn that the government has knowingly perpetrated this satanic act of genocide against the world..the gabriel record..pray without ceasing

  6. well done keep fighting the planet needs us all to keep up the fight.. We will win there is no other option, thank goodness for the internet.

  7. It was hell even getting out of the park to the street to march. It was all made complicated so people would give up and leave. Once we started marching, it was “go 20 steps and stop for a very long time in the heat.” Usual “delay and disburse” tactics, which I did not experience at demos in June and July, but which have become standard recently. One of our leaders ran up and down the line with a megaphone exhorting us “Akilamenaide!” (“Don’t give up.”) I saw no one leave, though some of us made runs to a nearby convenience store to get water for those who were flagging in the heat.

    What would have been an hour and a half walk, took nearly 4 hours because of the “delay and disburse” tactic. But we made it to Yoyogi Park as dusk settled in. The earlier waves that got there first had not disbursed and gone home. They stood and waited for the later waves to come in, cheering us and shouting “Otsukaresama!” (“Thanks for your efforts.”) My friends and I stayed in the area too once we were “done”, cheering and thanking the blocs that came in after us.

    Where is the world? I have been trying to find mention of us, the 60,000 who care about the future of Japan and our planet on the internet and………it just isn’t out there anywhere. Does anyone know the exact date the pro-nuclear lobby bought the so-called “free press?”

    Akilamenaide……Don’t Give Up….We will NOT lie down and die……

  8. Thank you so much for protesting and marching.

    You are doing it to protect your future and the future of Japan’s children.

    You are also doing it for everyone else on the planet.

    Much love and solidarity!

  9. It is a magnificent testament to the human spirit of this beautiful people, to make their feelings known in pubic mass rally. Only people power through love and determination will get anyone to take notice. I have started my own cease nuclear power campaign here in the UK, and people need to do the same things right across the globe, to make the nations leaders sit up and take notice. We do not want nuclear on our planet. We should rise up and do as this great people have done here. Sending Love and Great Admiration to you wonderful Japanese people from the UK. God Bless You All! Xx

  10. Here are my photos:

    We were all there: myself, the wife and our three kids. A lot of my Japanese family is from and still live in Fukushima. It’s my second home. And it’s been poisoned. And I am angry about that. I am not totally anti nuclear but I am against criminal incompetence and cover-up and that, by TEPCO in collusion with the govt and media, has what has been happening.It happens in hydro electric power too…. just two weeks ago JPower’s failure to ease water levels in their dam in Nara caused the river to flood and people lost their lives. Neighbouring Wakayama’s power company took the accepted safety procedures and lowered water levels. The river didnt flood.

    We need to get beyond executives being able to act so incompently and then, when found out, just be able to bow, apologize on national TV and walk away into a nice retirement with a big pension.

    10secs on NHK’s Monday evening news? For the biggest demo in almost 50 years, just 6months after the biggest nuclear accident in more than 20 years?

    That in itself says much about the way this country needs to wake up to how it is being run and misled…. and I am here for the long-haul, to try and do whatever I can to help the process. 🙂

  11. Bin begeistert über die klasse-Masse, wir werden mehr und mehr, Es gibt keine Friedliche Nutzung der Kernenergie,es gibt nur die Illusion,die die Atomspalter verkaufen,Physiker und Wissenschaftler: Macht Schluss mit euren Experimenten,die Zukunft oder WIR,die Erdlinge, werden euch hart bestrafen.

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.
