Tomioka seeks decommissioning of Fukushima Daini
The assembly of Tomioka Town in Fukushima Prefecture has approved a petition calling for the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daini nuclear plant.
The plant, some 10 kilometers from the Fukushima Daiichi plant, has been off-line since the meltdown.
Number 3 and 4 reactors of the Daini plant fall within the boundaries of Tomioka Town.
The petition adopted by a majority vote on Wednesday says it's highly unlikely the community will accept the plant's restart now the national nuclear policy has been called into question.
Fukushima Prefecture has already adopted petitions calling for scrapping all nuclear reactors in the prefecture.
But this is the first time such a petition has been approved by a township assembly in Fukushima.
