Demonstration in Berlin: In Solidarity with Japanese Movement
Berlin, July, 29th, a demonstration counting round about 200 activists took place. The demonstration was organized by AntiAtomBerlin as a means to clearly express our solidarity with the Japanese anti nuclear movement. Two weeks ago in Tokio, the anti nuclear movement reached a huge participation rate of up to 170 000 protesters after the Prime Minister had agreed to restart nuclear power plants in Japan. The demonstration in Berlin took place at the Brandenburger Tor with a march to the Embassy of Japan. Parallel to the demonstration taking place in Berlin, a human chain was created by anti nuclear activists in in the government district of Tokyo. It was a great come together of anti nuclear activists from different nationalities throughout the world.
There were various speaches concerning the political situation and treatment of the topic in Japan, but also the German politics were highly criticized because the energy turnaround is heavily blocked and there are still too strong voices that want to maintain nuclear power plants. "Sayonara Genpatsu = Good bye nuclear power" und "Saikado hantai = We are agianst restarts ". Also in Frankfurt (Main) a demonstration took place at which a livestream from the Japanese demonstration was shown.
