» Fishermen protest with TEPCO over the leakage of contaminated water into sea

Representatives of Japan’s national fishermen’s federation visited Tokyo Electric Power Co. headquarters on July 25 to hand in a letter of protest over the recent leakage of radioactive water from Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean. “We are exasperated at the development, which is an act of treason to all fishing industry workers and to all members of the public in Japan,” read part of the letter addressed to Naomi Hirose, the corporate president.

The move came after the utility finally admitted on July 22nd that radioactive water has been leaking from the crippled nuclear reactor into the sea.

Tetsu Nozaki, head of the Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fisheries Cooperative Associations, also attended the meeting.He told reporters that the latest development on contaminated water leakage was the biggest scandal since the nuclear disaster 2011.
