9.19 Nuclear Power Protests In Tokyo, Japan

Chanting "Sayonara nuclear power" and waving banners, 60,000 people marched in central Tokyo on September 19 to call on Japan's government to abandon atomic energy in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear accident.

 

The demonstration underscores how deeply a Japanese public long accustomed to nuclear power has been affected by the March 11 crisis, when a tsunami caused core meltdowns at three reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex.
