Anti-nuclear protestors chant, “No more Hiroshima, no more Fukushima” and other slogans as they march through the streets of Tokyo, ending with a rally in front of the national parliament (Diet) building. Initially police did not let protestors into the square in front of the building; then crowds surged through the barricades and filled the square for about 40 minutes until the rally ended peacefully. In Japan, where public protest is rare, weekly protests have been the largest demonstrations since the 1960s. Audio: Chifumi Sugano, a Tokyo housewife who became an activist after the disaster, explains a protest chant.<br />
