News: Massive anti-nuclear demonstration in Fukuoka 11/12/11

(Nika here, writing this post)

The awesome William Milberry, who creates important and intelligent videos on life in Japan and partiularly with respect to the Fukushima nuclear disaster, shared a video yesterday of a large anti-nuke protest in Fukuoka, Japan.

He says in the description of the above video:

There were over 10,000 people. Everyone assembled in a large park several hours before the demonstration and there were talks given on stage, a taiko drum performance, and various booths both selling things and with information. It was really huge and organized. Then everyone took to the streets and through Tenjin, a major center of the city of Fukuoka. It was all peaceful and organized and very impressive. It was probably one of the largest anti-nuclear demonstrations in Japan to date.

I send out love, solidarity, and encouragement to the amazing every day people of Japan who I admire very much.
