On June 7, 2012, about 70 women including 10 women from Fukushima did a “die-in” in front of the Prime Minister’s Official Residence to protest against the restart of Ooi Nuclear Power Plant. Before the die-in, 10 Fukushima women visited the Cabinet Office and met with officials to submit a letter of requests addressed to Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda.
This video clip shows the words from the Fukushima women and part of the Die-In.
On the very next day, June 8, 2012, Prime Minister Noda held a press conference and declared he would restart Ooi Nuclear Power Plant!!! Mr. Noda’s stance is a terrifying example of what one might call “industrial madness.” Societies afflicted with industrial madness regularly cause harm larger than they can imagine, recognize, acknowledge or take responsibility for.
