Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda visited Fukushima on the July 7, 2012 for the first time since the "3.11 accident" to investigate the recovery of infrastructure. As Noda went into the Fukushima prefectual government office, 20 people protested against the restart of Oi Nuclar Power Plant. There were also a few female protesters trying to talk to the Prime Minister. However, the riot police prevented them from coming into the office. Ruiko Muto, one of the protesters there and who called for criminal complaint against TEPCO and the government, said 'what did Prime Minister came here for? Seeing him escape into his office without hearing our voices, I feel like neglected so much. His decision to call for the restart of Oi Nuclear Power Plant is completely mad. He barely understands that the accident of Fukushima Daiich Nuclear Power Plant is awfully catastrophic and still ongoing. He gave his announcement for the restart as if the accident has never happened.'
