On October 13, 2013, thousands of people marched down the streets of Tokyo to protest against nuclear power. In a rally dubbed Goodbye Genpatsu [ja], Japanese people demanded the end of nuclear power plants and the use of more environmentally friendly sources of energy.
Kenzaburo Oe, winner of the 1994 Nobel Prize in Literature, spoke [ja] in front of a 2000-strong crowd gathered in Hibiya Public Hall.
After the earthquake on March 11, 2011, Japanese people have strived to diminish nuclear power plants. However, no politicians have the determination today. Through nuclear power, we have made a very uncomfortable place for our children to live in the future. We have to admit responsibility for that and go back to a world where humans can live essentially [naturally].
