The reality is that the Abe-led LDP Party has largely ignored popular demand for no nuclear power and has backed away from the previous “zero-nuclear” policy proposed by the Democratic Party of Japan administration while clarifying its desire to restart nuclear facilities in its energy action plan. In addition, seismologist Kunihiko Shimazaki, who has been trying to hold nuclear plant operators accountable, will retire as a Nuclear Regulation Authority commissioner. As a result efforts are being made to force through a replacement who is part of Japan’s Nuclear Power Village. It seems that very little has been learned from the Fukushima catastrophe of March 11, 2011 with a return to the same policies that existed prior to the disaster and an apparent abandoning of victims.
At present, no nuclear power plants are in operation, and there is enough electricity in Japan. Despite this and the fact that adequate evacuation plans have not been formulated, authorities are trying to engineer the restart of nuclear facilities throughout Japan, prioritizing the re-firing of the Sendai nuclear power plant in Kagoshima Prefecture. The Sendai facility has a high risk of explosion and should not be restarted under any circumstances. The key focus of efforts going forward will be to prevent the restart of this facility.
Recently, a landmark ruling was made by the Fukui District Court ordering Kansai Electric Power Co. not to restart the No. 3 and No. 4 reactors of the Oi nuclear power plant. This decision can be attributed to the hard work of the plaintiff group and legal team as well as the continued efforts of everyone involved in the anti-nuclear movement.
The assembly and protest march on June 28 aims to halt the restart of the Sendai nuclear power plant and will be held jointly by the Metropolitan Coalition Against Nukes, Sayonara Genpatsu 10 Million People’s Action, and Genpatsu o Nakusu Zenkoku Renrakukai.
