LONDON - Anti-nuclear campaigners will mark the 7th anniversary of the Fukushima disaster on Sunday outside the Japanese Embassy in London before marching to a rally opposite Parliament.
Kate Hudson, CND general secretary, said:
"Seven years on since the Fukushima disaster, the Japanese government remains unable to contain one of the worst nuclear accidents in the history of nuclear power. Thousands of people are still unable to return to their homes because of radioactive leaks.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
