Tens of thousands of people protested against nuclear power outside Japan’s parliament on Sunday
On the main avenue leading to the assembly, the crowd broke through the barriers and spilled onto the streets, forcing the police to bring in reinforcements and deploy armoured buses to buttress the main parliament gate.
Thousands of people have been protesting against nuclear power outside Japan’s parliament in Tokyo.
All of the country’s atomic reactors were shut down after last year’s Fukushima disaster but two plants were controversially restarted this month.
“We won’t allow any more reactors to restart,” said one of the protest leaders. “We want to hammer this demand home to the government.”
