Monju-kun says Oi-kun is against the resuming of reactors
Monju-kun is a character born out of the fast-breeder-reactor, Monju. He explains about abolishing nuclear reactors on Twitter for everyone to easily understand.
Oi-kun is a cute nickname for the Oi nuclear power plant.
「Oi-kun is also against resuming of his nuclear reactors.」
I’m furious. On the Friday night of June 15, I felt as if my sodium was going react with my tears and explode while watching the live-stream video of roughly 11,000 people who gathered in front of the Prime Minister’s official residence to protest against the resuming of the Oi nuclear power plant.
Everyone there were regular folks; there were many children and stylish young women among the crowd as well as young mothers with babies, even elderly people. Stereotyped as docile and polite Japanese citizens voluntarily gathered there after work on Friday night; 11,000 of them! without anyone or any organization prompting them to do so. They all politely protested saying, “We’re against resuming of the Oi plant!” and “Protect our children [from radiation]!”
[Our government] ignoring these strong and sincere protesting voices made me wonder that Japan wasn’t a democratic nation after all… If we don’t have a democratic nation, we’re just going to have to get it back on our own.
Oi-kun says, “I don’t have emergency vents or base-isolated buildings for earthquakes. Please don’t restart me.”
I’m not going to let it [the government’s decision on resuming the Oi nuke plant] discourage me, and I’m going to keep my voice up to prevent other nuke plants from resuming.
