Campaigners urged the government to reject "dangerous and expensive" nuclear power today as they marked the second anniversary of the Fukushima disaster in Japan.
Crowds took to the streets of London on Saturday to say no to nuclear power worldwide and to "wake the British public up" to what they call the government's lack of "courage and vision" on the issue.
The march took place to mark tomorrow's second anniversary of the quake and tsunami that sent the Fukushima nuclear power station into multiple meltdowns.
It was organised by the Sunflower Revolution, CND and Kick Nuclear to coincide with anti-nuclear marches across the world.
Demonstrators, including Japanese expats, wore sunflower garlands and carried an array of sunflower-covered flags and banners as they marched on London's streets.
Organisers said they aimed to send a clear message to those hoping for a sustainable future and warned that a lesson must be learned from "the thousands of people suffering in Japan" after the events of 2011.
CND general secretary Kate Hudson said: "We owe it to the victims and to ourselves to reject this dangerous and expensive energy form."
Kick Nuclear co-founder Camilla Berens added: "We need to wake the British public up to the fact that the government's line - that we need nuclear to keep the lights on - is completely untrue and unfounded. It's the last thing we need."
