Efforts in Japan started out slow but have gained speed recently as groups get organized to help people be safe, find safe food and resist commercial nuclear power.
Cities throughout Shizuoka prefecture are passing resolutions demanded Hamaoka nuclear power plant be permanently shut down and decommissioned. Hamaoka has been declared one of the most dangerous nuclear plants on earth as it sits on multiple fault lines at a low elevation near the sea.
The Hakodate City mayor has asked that construction on the Oma nuclear plant by permanently stopped.
Even government officials have begun to crack. A high ranking official at the Ministry of the Environment admitted people do not trust the government’s radiation readings. NISA officials are admitting that the RPV (reactor vessel) at one of the reactors cracked in the earthquake. The unified government front of “everything is fine” is continuing to crack.
A group of 300 fashion models turned mothers that promotes education activities for young mothers trained on nuclear safety. The group learned how to select safer food and other ways parents can protect their children to add this knowledge into their program.
CRMS has added a radiation monitoring lab in Setagaya. CRMS was one of the first outside efforts to help people in Japan deal with radiation food risk. CRMS began in France as a citizen response to food contamination in Europe after Chernobyl.
Two huge efforts to get voter referendums on nuclear power in Osaka and Tokyo are getting considerable support. The campaigns seem well organized and have many celebrities putting their names behind the campaigns. The referendums need 300,000 signatures in Tokyo and 60,000 in Osaka, these numbers include extra signatures for cushion. Civic groups began collecting signatures at places like Shibuya Station to expedite the process.
People are fighting back, they are actively trying to do something in large numbers.
