There has still been no resolution to the nuclear accident that occurred on March 2011. This includes a number of lingering problems, including the issue of evacuees. Despite this, the government is pushing ahead toward the completely irresponsible action of restarting the Sendai Nuclear Power Pant in Kagoshima Prefecture, which is riddled with problems such as risk of explosion and leakage, while an evacuation plan has yet to be created.

Since operation of the No. 4 reactor of the Oi Nuclear Power Plant in Fukui Prefecture, which was the only nuclear plant in action in Japan, was halted for routine inspection on September 15, 2013, there have been zero nuclear facilities online in Japan. The fact that it was possible to pass summer, when electricity usage is at its peak, without any nuclear power, proves that there is enough power in Japan without resorting to the use of nuclear plants. Despite this, the government has been trying to restart nuclear plants throughout Japan for the sole benefit of a few individuals and corporations.

There is no need whatsoever for us to be sacrificed just to protect the interests of a few people. Nuclear power can destroy the sanctity of life. Come along to the demonstration and make your voice heard!
