The event “My Future – Aiming for 100% renewable energy and a fair society” was held at Yoyogi Park in Tokyo on the 18th, calling for the realization of a world that does not rely on nuclear power or fossil fuels. The anti-nuclear rally, which had been held at the park until last fall, has been expanded to include efforts to prevent climate change. After the event, there was a parade around the park, with a total of 8,000 participants.

On the talk show, report writer Kei Kamata touched on the release of treated water into the ocean from the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, saying, “The government has thrown away the Fukushima Prefectural Fisheries Federation’s promise not to dispose of it until they understand better. “Being ridiculed is the reward for not asserting our opposition. We must once again create a culture in which we speak out.” Ayako Kawasaki of “Fridays For Future Tokyo,” one of the co-sponsor organizations that calls for the climate crisis, said, “Just like the nuclear power plant accident, an increasing number of people around the world are being forced to flee their homes due to climate disasters. “I want this to be a movement that brings together the voices of many different people, without being limited by this.”
