On June 15, 2012, we will do demonstrations in front of the prime minister’s official residence and the Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) headquarter.

Fukui Prefecture Nuclear Safety Commission ratified the government’s judgment about the Oi nuclear power plant reactors #3 and #4 being “safe” and submitted the report to Governor Nishikawa of Fukui prefecture.  At this rate Governor Nishikawa will listen to the prefectural assembly and Mayor Tokioka of Oi-cho, and he will end up agreeing to the restart.  Along the line, as early as by the end of next week, the government will make a final decision on the restart.  Right now, the situation to prevent the restart of Oi nuclear power plant is at the critical moment.

Ever since the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident after 311, there has been a large build-up of anti-nuclear movements nationwide, and the public opinions against the restart have become overwhelming.  In addition, “Osaka Restoration Association” headed by Osaka Mayor Hashimoto, who has his eyes set on the next national election, politicized the restart issue, resulting in the uncertain prospects for the restart of nuclear power plants which were stopped for routine inspections one after another.  On May 5, 2012, no nuclear power plant was in operation in Japan.

However, just merely one month after all nuclear power plants were stopped, while the Fukushima nuclear accident has not even settled, a hasty restart of Oi nuclear power plant is about to go underway after all, despite the overwhelming public opposition.  Yet we must raise our voices to protest against it.  Allowing the restart to proceed will be a huge turning point for the survival of all life forms in the entire world.

Time:  Friday, June 15, 2012, 6 to 8 pm.
Location: In front of the prime minister’s official residence. (In front of Kokkai Kisha Kaikan, right outside #3 exit at Kokkaigijidomae station.)
Organizer: The Metropolitan area anti nuclear power plant alliance members.

Time: Friday, June 15, 2012, 6 to 8 pm.
Location: In front of Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) headquarter. (6-16 Sancho-me, Nakanoshima, Kita-ku, Osaka-city, Osaka Prefecture)

6月15日 首相官邸前、関電本社前で抗議を行います。

福井県の原子力安全専門委員会が 大飯原発3,4号機を「安全」とした政府判断を追認し、報告書を西川知事に提出。このままいけば、西川知事は県議会と時岡町長の判断を聞き、再稼動に同意 してしまいます。その流れを受けて、早ければ来週中にも、政府は再稼動について最終判断を下してしまいます。今、大飯原発の再稼動阻止を巡る情勢はまさに 瀬戸際です。

311の福島第一原発の事故以来、全国的に大きな盛り上がりを見せた反原発運動や、再稼働反対の世論が圧倒的に なってきたこと、さらに次の国政選挙を見据えた橋下大阪市長率いる「維新の会」が、再稼働問題を政局化させたことにより、定期検査入りで次々と停止した原 発の再稼働の目処は立たず、5月5日には国内で稼働中の原発はついに0基となりました。

しかし、 原発全基停止からわずか1ヵ月が経過した今、福島第一原発の事故の収束もままならないまま、世論の大多数が反対している大飯原発の拙速な再稼働がついに進 められようとしています。それでも、私達には、まだ抗議の声を上げる必要があります。ここで再稼働を許すかは、世界中の生命にとっての大きな岐路です。
