Fukushima: two years on
Issued on: Modified:
Two years ago today, a massive earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, triggering a tsunami that killed as many as 19,000 people. It also led to the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and today, hundreds of thousands of people remain homeless. Tens of thousands of people protested in Tokyo at the weekend to urge the government to abandon nuclear power, but the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, says he wants to switch more nuclear plants back on. RFI spoke to Alishan Tumer, Greenpeace's international nuclear campaigner, about the ongoing impact of the Fukushima disaster.
