Wylfa B protesters make their voices heard in Japan via North Wales Chronicle

PROTESTERS who are against plans for a nuclear plant on Anglesey are visiting Japan for a week of campaigning.

Robat Idris, Linda Rogers and Meilyr Tomos, members of PAWB – People Against Wylfa B – have been invited by Friends of the Earth Japan.

PAWB announced its partnership with Friends of the Earth Japan last year.

They have joined forces to oppose Hitachi’s plans to build two nuclear reactors at Wylfa on Anglesey.

Ayumi Fukakusa, from Friends of the Earth Japan, visited Anglesey and Gwynedd in November.


They will also visit the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster site, and meet the women of Fukushima, political campaigners, the press and public.

They will also spend a day in meetings with Japanese government ministers and will take part in seminars in Tokyo and Osaka. They will also meet with the state owned Japan Bank for International Co-operation.

The group are also set to meet the ex-Prime Minister of Japan, Naoto Kan and his Constitutional Democratic Party, and the bipartisan Nuclear Zero Committee.

On behalf of the deputation Robat Idris said: “We look forward greatly to campaigning with all our friends in Japan.

“All the meetings and lobbying which we will take part in will give us the chance to emphasise that nuclear power is yesterday’s technology and a very expensive yesterday in Japan’s case following the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi in 2011.
