Approximately 200 members of the Diet, including former Prime Minister Naoto Kan, and union members participated in the in-house meeting. ……
The Seikatsu Club Business Federation Consumers’ Co-operative Union (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Chairman: Shoichi Murakami, hereinafter referred to as Seikatsu Club) held an in-house meeting at the House of Representatives Second Member Building on February 6, 2024. When the Basic Energy Plan is scheduled to be revised in 2024, union members will sign a petition calling for 80% elimination of nuclear power, decarbonization, and renewable energy (hereinafter referred to as “renewable energy”) in order to realize a sustainable society. We collected 112,957 brushstrokes. We have submitted this signature to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Ministry of the Environment. Approximately 200 people, including Seikatsu Club members and related organizations, attended the meeting. Ten members of the Diet, including former Prime Minister Naoto Kan, attended, and we received powerful comments such as, “I am convinced that all electricity can be supplied with renewable energy even without nuclear power plants,” and “I want to do my best together with everyone.” After the rally, a standing action was held outside the venue.

-Messages from the speakers-
■Nobuto Hosaka, Mayor of Setagaya Ward
We give classes on climate change at elementary schools, and children also participate in adult meetings at the Setagaya Children’s Climate Conference. The children particularly reacted to the statement “Children are not immature adults” in the “Setagaya Ward
Educational Guidelines,” and the discussion became lively. Although the ward is promoting inter-municipal cooperation in renewable energy, there are many misconceptions that hinder the transition to renewable energy. I would like to see a thorough discussion about how dangerous nuclear power plants are in Japan, a country prone to earthquakes, and how unsustainable they are.

We must fundamentally change our infrastructure, our society’s dependence on thermal power and automobiles, and our sources of high emissions, such as coal, gas, steel, and cement. Rather than an environmental problem, this is a system/economic, or indeed political, problem. Let’s become agents of system change, speak out loud in support of renewable energy, and build connections in the communities where we live. Let’s look forward and work towards making this a reality.

I try to live as plastic-free as possible, but I felt angry that I was the only one making efforts to reduce plastic. That’s why I think it’s wonderful to have friends who can raise their voices together. I am active in the hope that when people I care about are affected by climate change, I don’t want to regret it, thinking, “I wish I had spoken up back then.” There are some things that can only be done through politics, so I have high hopes for all the members of Congress who came here to promote the elimination of nuclear power and renewable energy.

Energy Policy Proposal Campaign Executive Committee Chair Megumi Sano (Seikatsu Club Kanagawa Vice-Chairman)
In 2023, it will be extremely hot, and we can no longer ignore climate change, which is becoming more serious year by year. Now is the time to accelerate the transition to renewable energy. The Noto Peninsula earthquake once again reminded us that Japan is a country prone to earthquakes. I think this is a warning from nature, telling us to take nuclear power seriously this time. I believe that the realization of a sustainable society will become a reality if each of us independently moves, connects, and engages in activities.

After the in-hospital assembly, a standing action was held outside the venue, with 40 volunteers participating.
They chanted the original call created by the executive committee, “Let’s change, let’s change energy, let’s change our future with electricity, let’s change, let’s change with renewable energy, let’s change and stop the climate crisis,” and expressed our thoughts.
