Prime Minister Noda also mentioned that meltdown would never be happening again whatever happens. How could he say it for sure? In fact Kepco hasn’t applied appropriate safe measures. There is no vent with radioactive filter attached, and there is no earthquake-proof building which could serve as a command centre in an emergency. Kepco says they will build these within four years and raise the breakwater within two years. Also several earthquake specialists have suggested that the area might be an active fault zone. Furthermore, no appropriate disaster-prevention measures have been applied to the area within a 30 – km radius of the plant.
Most of Japanese people are really having enough of those false safety statements. There have been demonstrations in front of the Prime Minister’s residential office in Tokyo on every Friday evening since March. It’s getting bigger and bigger - 11,000 people on 15/6 and 45,000 people on 22/6. Yet no major media and TV don’t report it except Tokyo newspaper, Akahata shimbun and one of late night Asahi news TV program. NHK which is equivalent to BBC never reports it because it’s sponsor, electric companies don’t want them to do. Kepco, the owner is restarting the Oi Nuclear power plants on this coming Sunday (1/7/12). So this coming Friday demonstration is set to be even bigger. Also similar style of demonstration is happening in front of Kepco in Osaka-city in the west of Japan as well.
