Fukushima Remembered At Japan Anti-Nuke Protest

Hundreds gathered in Tokyo on Saturday calling for an end to nuclear power as the second anniversary of the disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility in northeastern Japan.

Hundreds of people rallied in a Tokyo park on Saturday, demanding an end to atomic power nearly two years (Monday is the 2 year anniversary) after the disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility in northeastern Japan.

March 11, 2011, when the magnitude 9.0 earthquake -- the strongest recorded in Japan's history -- struck off the coast, followed by the tsunami left nearly 19,000 people dead or missing and more than 300,000 people still displaced.

Japan has struggled to clean up radiation from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, whose reactors melted down after its cooling systems were disabled by the tsunami, and rebuild lost communities along the coast. A new government elected in December has vowed faster action, but has yet to devise a post-disaster energy strategy -- a central issue for its struggling economy.
