can’t get out of the subway station “Kokkaigijidomae (= in front of National Diet)”. Police shut down all the exits except for just one. It’s completely under control. but people are yelling against restart of nuclear plants underground.
I’m in front of official residence. There are more than 100,000 people. Police blockaded the public street in front of Member of the House of Representatives meeting place to violate the right of petition.
Police is shutting down the exits of subway station one after one, people are stuck underground to come late. They can’t get out, platform and ticket gates are full like Sushi, women are screaming. Cabinet of Noda is trying to oppress the voice of people. It was really dangerous today.
just back from in front of official residence. Today I got out of the exit No.4 of Kokkaigijidomae (= in front of National Diet) station (Only exit No4 was open.) but it was so full of people, took me so much time to get out. Police shut down other exits for security, people couldn’t get out to come late. From next time, maybe they should walk from further stations.
The streetlights were turned off, maybe it was for that reason? > Maybe government doesn’t want us to take the picture of “official residence surrounded by people” never again. It had that much impact.
I think a lot of people were irritated today. Subway exits were blockaded by police, the queue was made long, finally arrived at Kasumigaseki (government district) but kept on the corner of the sidewalk. However, people kept yelling “No restart”. It was raining hard but they didn’t stop.
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.
