Fukui, Japan, April 14, 2012: Greenpeace activists greet Japanese Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yukio Edano outside the Fukui Prefecture Government offices with a banner reading EDA*NO* (no nuclear), slamming the Governments push to bring two reactors at the Ohi nuclear power plant back online against public opinion and the recommendations of numerous experts, and despite essential safety and emergency upgrades not being completed. Japan currently has only one nuclear reactor out of 54 online, and will potentially be completely nuclear-free within one month. Greenpeace is calling on the Japanese government to leave its nuclear plants offline to ensure safety following the March 11, 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and to rapidly increase its renewable energy capacity.
