An annual parade launched by a coalition of more than 60 groups opposed to
nuclear power was held in Taipei yesterday.
Noting the anniversary on Friday of Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear disaster, the National Nuclear Abolition Action Platform said many people in Japan have been forced to move away from their homes due to radioactive contamination, and it does not want a similar situation in Taiwan.
The theme for the parade was “farewell nuclear power and facing nuclear waste,” with activists demanding a nuclear-free nation and a fair solution to nuclear waste disposal.
Other anti-nuclear protests were also held across the nation yesterday. [FULL STORY]
