Nous manifestons à Aomori tous les vendredis. Cette année, dans un froid hivernale de -7 ℃, ça a commencé hier. Alors que cette nouvelle année commence juste, la suppression du droit à la parole commence aussi.
La police a placardé cette note dans le parking en face de la gare. La police d’Aomori : “Agir pour provoquer ou créer toute autre confusion est interdit”.

La police d'Aomori placarde des avis contre les manifestations au nom de la prévention des nuisances

Ces actes vont contre la loi de prévention des nuisances.
Tout acte ou parole les provoquant ou provoquant toute autre confusion.
Faire peur aux gens avec des outils dangereux.
Choquer les gens par des actes et des discours obscènes.
Inquiéter les gens en se déplaçant ou se rassemblant en large groupes.

  1. This reminds me of ‘Occupy Wall St.’ in the U.S., which was promptly stamped out by FBI infiltration and brutal police tactics. I wonder what will happen in these people continue on as they were?

    1. it was easy to see this comming

      So true Vysel, what will happen
      first, the protesters (domestic terrorist)
      will be forced to leave public land
      If they return they will be beaten, and arrested.

      The usa,
      once the land of the free was an example that japan seemed to follow
      In the last 10 years a new example many nations, japan included folllow that disagreement with govt, is a threat and will be swiftly delt with.

      When the govt fears the people, there is liberty
      When the people fear the govt, there is tyrany.

  2. so much for the constitution of Japan, Article 11, 16 and 21.

    Article 11:

    The people shall not be prevented from enjoying any of the fundamental human rights. These fundamental human rights guaranteed to the people by this Constitution shall be conferred upon the people of this and future generations as eternal and inviolate rights.

    Article 16:

    Every person shall have the right of peaceful petition for the redress of damage, for the removal of public officials, for the enactment, repeal or amendment of laws, ordinances or regulations and for other matters; nor shall any person be in any way discriminated against for sponsoring such a petition.

    Article 21:

    Freedom of assembly and association as well as speech, press and all other forms of expression are guaranteed. 2) No censorship shall be maintained, nor shall the secrecy of any means of communication be violated.

    of course given Abe wants to rewrite article 9 to allow for war, so why would he respect anything else.

  3. I hope they find the guts to still protest and challenge the police. Not sure if this was city or police initiated. I’m sure it wouldn’t stand up in court if challanged.

  4. Very dry humor :

    This post ” Making people feel anxious by moving and staying in large groups ” also means that the Police is not allowed to gather in groups because it Does make people anxious 😛 , we need a benevolent Lawyer to march in the front line of each demonstration and explain the Facts to the police , live …

  5. I fear the first sharp bullet from a police-gun. It may happen in Japan or, as you may be unaware of, here in AREVA-country any day soon.

    I’ve never been in Japan and have no feeling for the way the Japanese express “mood-swings”. But I know France. The French, too, took the example of the american war of independence.., way back in 1789. But compare their way of “sorting out things” to yours. They are sleeping. There may be a government in France, there may be corruption and an industrial Mafia like everywhere else. But they are only tolerated by a population of individuals.

    If you want to see a revolution, forget Internet. Watch the french manifest for no matter which cause. And the number of causes and manifestations increases. And I am afraid of the first bullet shot by the CRS.

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.
