10 years have passed since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. During this time, the Japanese government continued to promote nuclear power, and former Prime Minister Abe made false statements in order to attract the Olympics, saying, “The nuclear accident is under control.” However, the accident has not been
settled successfully, and the government continues to do things that are not allowed, such as considering the release of radioactive contaminated water into the ocean. Furthermore, there are still many people who cannot return to their hometowns due to radioactive contamination, and it was foolish and sad to name the Tokyo Olympics “reconstruction Olympics” even though the reconstruction of the entire Tohoku region
is only halfway there.

It is time for humanity to realize that we cannot coexist with nuclear facilities and that they cannot be used for peaceful purposes. We must end the threat of nuclear facilities. In fact, since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, renewable energy has become the mainstream overseas, and it is well known that
the nuclear power industry is economically unviable. What we should move to now is the “era of decommissioning nuclear power plants”. Decommissioning can take more than 30 years, and advancing a shift in energy policy as soon as possible is within the “scope of our responsibility” as adults for the next generation.

Electricity is essential to the lives of people in modern society. However, it is quite natural to use safe electricity such as renewable energy rather than dangerous nuclear power plants that harm the environment and lives. The “natural” must not be spoiled by a small number of vested interests and politicians who aspire to acquire nuclear arms. Overwhelming public opinion is for denuclearization, and we cannot be called a democratic nation unless those in power accept the will of the people. It will be the first step toward a better and new society to start moving toward “denuclearization”. NO NUKES in the world!
