TOKYO, June 2 (Itar-Tass) - Thousands protesters marched along Tokyo’s central streets on Sunday against use of nuclear energy. They circled the country’s parliament.
The participants scanned: “Let us stop the nuclear energy!” and “Let us protect our children.” They also called on the country’s mass media to pay more attention to the nuclear energy. Additional forces of the municipal police were attracted to the site.
After the accident at Fukushima-1 in March of 2011, the anti-nuclear rhetoric in Japan has grown. Protests against the peaceful use of nuclear energy take place regularly both in the capital and in other cities throughout the country. Organisers collect signatures in support of a referendum on further use of this kind of energy.
Polls demonstrate that over 70 percent of the nation are against the nuclear energy. The country’s former government leaded by the Democratic party adopted a programme to ban the peaceful use of nuclear energy by 2030, but in December of the past year the Liberal-Democratic party replaced the cabinet as it won the national election. The party’s leader, Japan’s new Prime Minister Sinzo Abe said many times the authorities planned to revise the approaches used by the former government and promised to make a “balanced decision” on use of nuclear energy, thus having caused criticism from the anti-nuclear activists.
