The Taiwanese government should demolish the construction of the fourth nuclear power plant lest an insensitive president should reactivate it in the future, Taiwanese novelist turned antinuclear activist Liu Li-er said on Tuesday during a discussion with New Power Party legislators.
Liu had a talk with NPP legislators Huang Kuo-chang, Hsu Yung-ming, Hung Tzu-yung and Kawlo Iyun Pacidal at the Legislature on Tuesday noon.
She thanked the NPP for putting the issues of complete denuclearization and disposal of nuclear wastes under the spotlight.
The government should announce demolition of the fourth nuclear plant so that no presidents in the future can unpack it, Liu said, adding that the potential danger of the plant has become public knowledge.
The fourth plant is located in northern New Taipei City. A great many Taiwanese people are concerned about the safety of such facilities in earthquake-prone regions of Taiwan following the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan. [FULL STORY]
