Thousands stage anti-nuclear rally in Tokyo

Thousands have rallied in Japan’s capital Tokyo to demand an end to nuclear power, ahead of the third anniversary of the Fukushima disaster.

The protesters banged on drums and waved anti-nuclear flags as they marched towards the parliament.

“Today, there is no electricity flowing in Japan that is made at nuclear plants. If we continue this zero nuclear status and if we make efforts to promote renewable energy and invest in energy saving technology, I think it’s possible to live without nuclear,” Yasuro Kawai, a 66-year-old businessman and activist from Chiba prefecture quoted as saying.

The protest is one of the several rallies planned across Japan ahead of the March 11 anniversary of the 2011 nuclear disaster.

The government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has expressed interest in restarting some of the 48 reactors idled after the radioactive leak.
