Surfrider Foundation Japan submitted 30,000 petitions opposing the full operation of Rokkasho Nuclear Waste Reprocessing Plant on Monday, Jan. 28th. Click here for a detailed explanation on Rokkasho and why we are protesting.

Over 30,000 written and 400 online petitions were submitted to the federal government in a formal ceremony.

Prior to the submission of the petition, Surfrider organized a huge event with a few other NGOs to raise awareness about Rokkasho. More than 2000 people showed up!

Surfrider will continue with the petition so please sign it if you haven't already done so.
