[Ajisai Revolution] Ex-PM Hatoyama will join the protest in front of official residence
Though there are a lot of former prime minister in Japan, former Japanese prime minister Hatoyama Yukio stated he is going to take part in the protest in front of (his former) official residence in the interview of Iwakami Yasumi on 7/18/2012.
The protest is planned to start in 15 minutes from now.
Hatoyama commented, most of the major media try to ignore the protest, but it started independently by using Twitter etc.
This is a historical event, if the government keeps ignoring it, that would become such a disaster for the government.
He admitted he is against the restart of Ohi nuclear plant.
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.
