Nagasaki mayor: shift from nuclear power needed

The mayor of Nagasaki City will for the first time call for a shift away from nuclear energy in his annual peace declaration on August 9th, amid the ongoing nuclear crisis in Fukushima.

Mayor Tomihisa Taue told reporters on Thursday that the people of his city do not want to see more "Hibakusha," as the victims of the 1945 atomic bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima are known. He said he will call for a move toward safer, renewable energy sources in this year's declaration, no matter how long it might take to achieve that shift.
