Political parties perplexed over anti-nuclear protests
[link to mainichi.jp]
 Quoting: Waterbug



The Process of Demonstrations here
in Japan is really very unique,
before the Friday Demonstrations we had only the Two bigger once but now all are unified under (N-) one Banner and i welcome this!

Already is the first Weeks after 03/11 i said that we can't reach the
masses of People with the Communists (as a Organizer) because of the dislike of the majority of the People here,
now we have a "unpolitical Protest"
and this works for Japan very well!

Some People don't like is and call for a stronger Protest but imo the
Time is not ripe for Barricades
and when the Government is smart
we can avoid this but they (the Government) need to learn that it is up to us, the Citizens, to create Laws and Realities!

what is your true motivation for posting, the way I see you is to garner sypathy for your posts, and then lean toward appologetic postings for Tepco and the Gubnerment and statements that water down the efftects from Fuku... mis-information at the very least.... I for one am not scared to call you out and have a seperate web archive of all of your comments and derogatory filth that you slander others with in various posts.....

Three peace activists — including an 82-year-old nun — infiltrated the highest-security area of the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant in a predawn protest today, reportedly evading guards and cutting through three or four fences in order to spray-paint messages, hang banners and pour human blood at the site where warhead parts are manufactured and the nation's stockpile of bomb-grade uranium is stored.

NISA OKs aging Japanese reactor
[link to www.upiasia.com]

[snip]

The Genkai plant in the Saga Prefecture is currently offline for regular inspections and nuclear experts have expressed concern over its aging No. 1 reactor, which began operating in 1975, The Asahi Shimbun reported Saturday.

"I just don't understand yet why the transition temperature is so high," said Hiromitsu Ino, professor emeritus of metal materials science at the University of Tokyo. "I have doubts about the (pressure vessel's) safety. The No. 1 reactor should not be put back in operation."

Fukushima probes leave questions
Two blame tsunami for meltdowns but one still points to quake factor

The IC is an emergency cooling system.

Shortly after the quake hit the plant, engineers used the IC to cool the reactor core and turned it on and off for three times.

"It seems Tepco does not admit that the workers turned off the IC to check the leakage because it will bring up the unfavorable matter of the possibility of quake damage," said the Diet panel, adding that it is also conceivable that the pipeline for the IC might have been damaged by the quake.

The Diet panel asked Tepco if it could send investigators inside the reactor 1 building to view the quake damage as much as possible.
But Tepco declined because the utility did not want its employees to be exposed with more radiation more than was necessary.

Fukushima festival fully resumes after two years
Armored horse riders fought to capture sacred flags hurled into the air at a summer festival in the disaster-hit Soma region of Fukushima Prefecture on Sunday.

The annual festival was first held more than 1,000 years ago to train warriors and is designated as an important intangible ethnic heritage of Japan.

The 2 main events were canceled last year due to the disaster and the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Anti-nuclear protesters surround Diet building
TOKYO — Thousands of demonstrators, some wearing gas masks, marched on the Diet building on Sunday. In the evening, they formed a candlelit human chain to protest the use of nuclear power after the Fukushima crisis.

Starting at about 3:30 p.m., they marched through Tokyo chanting “we don’t need nuclear power” and “stop operating nuclear plants,” in the latest demonstration since a recent decision to resume using nuclear power in Japan following a total shutdown.

AFP journalists estimated there were at least 10,000 demonstrators

Gov't may have overlooked quake risk at Shika nuclear plant site
Geological data from the 1980s that recently led the nuclear safety agency to order a reinvestigation of a possible active fault beneath a nuclear power plant in central Japan came from two surveys conducted before the government approved the plant's construction, power company and government officials said Sunday.

Hokuriku Electric Power Co. dug a few trenches in the surveys conducted by July 1988 to check the fault at the planned site of the No. 1 reactor at its Shika nuclear power plant in Ishikawa Prefecture, but the results were not reflected in the government's safety review process through August 1988, suggesting the possibility of the fault triggering an earthquake may have been overlooked.

Large anti-nuclear rally held in Tokyo
A large rally has been held in Tokyo to protest the restart of a nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture.

The demonstrators gathered in Hibiya Park in central Tokyo on Sunday. They were protesting the recent resumption of the No.3 and No.4 reactors at the Ohi nuclear plant on the Sea of Japan coast.

They included elderly people and women with children.

They beat drums and held up placards and banners demanding the closure of the Ohi plant and scrapping the policy of nuclear power generation.

They later marched to the headquarters of Tokyo Electric Power Company and the ministry in charge of nuclear energy policies.

The organizer said 200,000 people took part. Police said the figure was 14,000.

DOE seeks input on Mox fuel

The Department of Energy and the Tennessee Valley Authority on Friday started a public input process on the proposed recycling of nuclear weapons into nuclear power plant fuel, and already there are objections.

The National Nuclear Security Administration, a part of the DOE, posted notice on the Federal Register that DOE will hold a 60-day public comment period on its Draft Surplus Plutonium Disposition Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. The document analyzes the potential environmental impacts of different methods of disposing of plutonium from nuclear weapons.

Anti-nuclear candidate loses Yamaguchi governor election

TOKYO — A candidate who ran on a rare anti-nuclear platform lost Sunday’s election for Yamaguchi governor, even as thousands of people formed “a human chain” around Japan’s Diet building complex to demand the government abandon nuclear power.

In the closely watched election, anti-nuclear candidate Tetsunari Iida trailed former bureaucrat Shigetaro Yamamoto with 185,654 votes to 252,461 votes, the prefecture said Monday. Two other independent candidates also ran. Voter turnout was 45%.

The election highlights the gap between deep anti-nuclear sentiments, evident in Sunday’s and other recent protests in Tokyo, and the reaction in distant rural areas, where the plants are located, that tends to be more accepting of their presence.

Tokyo Electric Power Company has held a large-scale drill on the assumption that a major earthquake occurred under central Tokyo.

About 300 people, including TEPCO's new management, took part in the drill on Monday.

The exercise was based on a scenario that a magnitude 7.3 quake had struck beneath Koto Ward near Tokyo Bay. That equals 6 plus on the Japanese seismic scale from 0 to 7. Under the scenario, power transmission lines and substations in the Tokyo metropolitan area were damaged.

Nuclear-power production in the U.S. is at the lowest seasonal levels in nine years as drought and heat force reactors from Ohio to Vermont to slow output.

Generation for the 104 plants in the U.S. fell 0.4 percent from yesterday to 94,171 megawatts, or 93 percent of capacity, the lowest level for this time of year since 2003, according to reports from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and data compiled by Bloomberg. The total is down 2.6 percent from the five-year average for today of 96,725 megawatts.

GE Chief: Nuclear 'hard to justify'

Nuclear power is so expensive compared with other forms of energy that it has become "really hard" to justify, according to the chief executive of General Electric, one of the world's largest suppliers of atomic equipment.


"It's really a gas and wind world today," said Jeff Immelt, referring to two sources of electricity he said most countries are shifting towards as natural gas becomes "permanently cheap".

"When I talk to the guys who run the oil companies they say look, they're finding more gas all the time. It's just hard to justify nuclear, really hard. Gas is so cheap and at some point, really, economics rule," Mr Immelt told the Financial Times in an interview in London at the weekend. "So I think some combination of gas, and either wind or solar ... that's where we see most countries around the world going."

Palisades and nuclear safety
We can never become complacent about nuclear power. The Michigan Department of Community Health has given us a jolting reminder.

The health department this month urged residents living near the plant to have potassium iodide pills on hand. "With the recent maintenance of the plant to ensure its safety, now is a good opportunity for residents and businesses to read the safety information in the booklet as well," the release said.

The state offers the iodine for free to residents within an immediate 10-mile zone where risk is highest in a potential radiation release. The purpose of the pills is to flood the thyroid gland with safe iodine, reducing its ability to absorb radioactive substance.

Automatic shutdown at S. Korea nuclear reactor
SEOUL, South Korea – A South Korean nuclear reactor went into automatic shutdown on Monday apparently after a malfunction, plant operators said, while ruling out a possible radiation leak.

The 1,000-megawatt reactor at Yeonggwang some 260 kilometres (156 miles) south of Seoul halted operations after warning signals around 3:00 pm (0600 GMT), the state-run Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power said.

An investigation was under way to determine the cause of the shutdown, it said, adding there was no danger of a radiation leak.
