Antinuke hunger strike in Tokyo

May 3, 2012



Setouchi joins antinuclear hunger strike



Authors Jakucho Setouchi and Hisae Sawachi joined a hunger strike Wednesday to express their opposition to the possible resumption of two reactors at a nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture.

A citizens group is holding the hunger strike in front of the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry in Tokyo.

"Many Japanese died in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki," Setouchi, 89, said after she arrived at the site at about 9:30 a.m. in a wheelchair. "I feel ashamed that we have submissively used power generated by nuclear reactors. We should get rid of them."

Sawachi, 81, said the government should promise to eliminate Japan's nuclear power plants. "I worry about the future lives of Japanese," she said.

Setouchi and Sawachi took part in the hunger strike until sunset.

The group is protesting against the plan to restart two suspended reactors at Kansai Electric Power Co.'s Oi power plant.
