Japanese citizens standing up to nuclear power

We're shaken up about the earthquake and nuclear crisis in Japan. A little over a year ago, we got off a container ship to spend a month in Japan, where we documented part of the No Nukes Festa, a huge event protesting Japan's use of nuclear power. Sponsors included groups like the Citizen's Nuclear Information Center, which warned of earthquake and tsunami risks.

In light of the nuclear accidents of the past several days, we thought we would share some of our photos of Japanese citizens standing up for environmental health and against nuclear energy policy. (Can't see the images? Click here.)
