Activists oppose reactor restart

Protesters gathered outside the Japanese Prime Minister’s office in Tokyo today shortly after Yoshihiko Noda said Japan must restart two nuclear reactors …

Mr Noda had appealed to the nation to accept that two nuclear reactors that remained shuttered after the Fukushima disaster must be restarted to protect the economy and people’s livelihoods.

He claimed that the government has taken ample safety measures to ensure the two reactors in western Japan would not leak radiation if an earthquake or tsunami as severe as last year’s should strike them.

But the demonstrators disagreed, shouing slogans and waving placards proclaiming that the reactors must stay closed down.

All 50 of Japan’s workable reactors are offline for maintenance and safety concerns since the magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami swept into Fukushima in 2011 and sparked the world’s second-worst nuclear disaster.

The two reactors at the Ohi nuclear plant are said to be ready to resume generating power, but the public has shown great concern that government failures worsened last year’s crisis and may recur.
