Experiments with Truth: News

Tens of thousands rally in Tokyo to say: ‘no nukes!’

An estimated 40,000 people rallied in Tokyo on Sunday to say “We oppose nuclear power” and urge the country to not restart any of the nation’s 50 nuclear reactors currently offline.

At the demonstration, which was organized by three anti-nuclear power groups, protesters marched past government offices as well as the head office of Fukushima plant operator TEPCO.

“We need to win back a world where our future children can live,” said Nobel Prize-winning author Kenzaburo Oe at the rally.

Takanori Teraoka, a Tokyo worker and father, said, “Something that could leave future generations with irreparable damage must not be done.”
