A Moving Video by a Protester via FukushimaVoice

There was a huge demonstration in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence in Tokyo by ordinary citizens, on June 15, 2012, against the restart of nuclear power plants in Japan, all of which have been stopped for routine inspections since May 5, 2012.

The Japanese government is on the verge of approving the restart of Oi nuclear power plant in Fukui prefecture.

People have actually been protesting in front of the PDespite the greatest-ever turnout of 11,000 protesters, the demonstration was not broadcast on TV, shielding the rest of the country from learning what was going on.

What is so moving about this short video is that you can hear the person who took the video crying.  You feel like you are in the crowd with her, sharing the emotion of people who gathered there, desperately wanting to change the future of Japan, not only for the sake of their children, grandchildren and future generation, but also for the sake of the planet Earth.

You hear the crowd shouting in unison, “Saikado hantai! (再稼動反対!) meaning “We oppose the restart!”
