TOKYO — Thousands of Japanese people marched against nuclear power Saturday, amid growing worries about the restarting of reactors idled after the March 11 meltdown disaster in northeastern Japan.
Holding “No Nukes” signs, people gathered at Yoyogi Park in Tokyo for a rally Saturday, including Nobel Prize-winning writer Kenzaburo Oe.
Thousands joined the march against nuclear power as worries grow about the restarting of reactors idled after the March 11, 2011 disaster in northeastern Japan. A sign in the center written in Japanese reads: “Good bye, nuclear power stations.”
The protesters then marched peacefully through the streets demanding Japan abandon atomic power.
“I’m worried there could be more nuclear accidents,” said Misako Terada, a 54-year-old housewife.
