5,000 protest in Shibuya against nuclear power generation (JAPAN)


About 5,000 citizens rallied against nuclear power in Shibuya on April 24, reflecting the increasing concerns about the energy source following the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant accident.

Many of the demonstrators said they participated in a demonstration for the first time, as they urged the government to switch from nuclear power to natural and renewable energy sources.

Asked why she was participating in the rally, a 33-year-old part-time worker from Tokyo's Kita Ward, said, "I was worried nuclear plant accidents could affect my children's or grandchildren's generations."

1. ''Bye Bye Genpatsu'' Goodbye Nuclear Power
I think it's thrilling that the Japanese Green movement is grabbing the moment.

Someone might really listen to them this time!
