Japan: 1000s Protest Before Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Anniversary

"Thousands of anti-nuclear protesters have gathered across Japan. The rallies come on the eve of the two-year anniversary of an earthquake and tsunami that caused the Fukushima disaster."

"Tens of thousands of people converged on central Tokyo's Hibiya Park Sunday in opposition to nuclear power. Activists and scholars gave talks and musicians performed before sign-carrying crowds that marched through the government district of Kasumigaseki to parliament.

'I think it is adults' responsibility to achieve zero nuclear power, before we die,' said one of the banners held by protesters."
