A Weekend Of Fukushima & Nuclear Protests In Japan

workerprotestMarch2014Workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster site took to the streets in Tokyo to demand fair treatment and safer working conditions. About 100 workers gathered in front of TEPCO headquarters on Friday.

The continued problems of contractor graft and theft of disaster pay has frustrated the process along with constant corner cutting at the plant putting the workers are unnecessary risk while they try to deal with the ongoing disaster.

In Kagoshima near the Sendai nuclear plant 6000 people protested the planned restart. Earlier in the week the Japanese government and NRA said they would concentrate on trying to get the Sendai plant back online first if it can pass safety screening.

The plant is a major employer in the region but not everyone supports restarting this plant.
