299 municipal assemblies object to N-power

July 16,2011
As of July 15, 299 municipal assemblies nationwide have adopted resolutions calling for a withdrawal from nuclear power generation, the establishment of tougher safety measures, and a shift to renewable energy sources.

Most statements argue that the government bring to an end the Fukushima crisis at the earliest possible date, prevent the spread of radiation contamination, and reconsider the present nuclear safety standards as well as the disaster prevention schemes in regard to nuclear accidents.

Tokyo’s Kiyose City Assembly urges the government to “create a policy with a clear timetable to reach the non-use of nuclear power generation.”

Hokkaido’s Oshamanbe Town Assembly demands that the government “clearly declare to the public Japan’s withdrawal from nuclear power generation and move towards a systematic shift to renewable energy.”
