We Talk: British people say Japan should reconsider the decision on nuclear-contaminated water

Global Stringer


The release of a third batch of nuclear-contaminated wastewater from Japan's damaged Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean ended as planned on November 20, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), its operator, said. As in the first and second rounds, Japan diluted some 7,800 tonnes of the radioactive wastewater with a large amount of seawater before releasing it. More than 23,000 tonnes were dumped into the sea since the first release. A CGTN stringer took to the streets in London to collect British people's opinions on this matter. Some people said the move would definitely affect their lives and Japan made the decision without thinking about others.
