A Maverick Former Japanese Prime Minister Goes Antinuclear
The New York Times - 12/31/2016
“The average Japanese is not that interested in issues of energy,” said Daniel P. Aldrich, professor of political science at Northeastern University. “They are antinuclear, but they are not willing to vote the L.D.P. out of office because of its pronuclear stance.”
Sustained political protest is rare in Japan, but some analysts say that does not mean the antinuclear movement is doomed to wither.
