Buddhist religious leaders join protest against nuclear reactor restart

Buddhist religious leaders have now joined other religious leaders with protests of plans to restart two of the idled reactors at the Oi nuclear power plant, which is operated by Kansai Electric Power Co. Rie Yamada of the Asahi Shimbun has reported on June 6, 2012 for The Buddhist Channel "Religious leaders call on higher power against nuclear reactor restart."

We all knew it was coming.Radioactive tuna has been caught off the coast of California. The fingerprint of cesium 137 is unmistakably from the exploded reactors at Fukushima.
But Fukushima's hot hands are also on a very welcome debate still stalemating China's plans to build more than 30 new reactors. Fierce No Nukes opposition continues to escalate in India. Reactor cancellations have spread throughout Europe.
