HAVANA TIMES — Tens of thousands of people marched in Tokyo on Monday in Japan’s largest protest against nuclear power since last year’s Fukushima disaster.

Japan halted nuclear production earlier this year for the first time since the 1970s but recently resumed operations by bringing a shuttered plant back online.

Organizers say up to 170,000 people took part in Monday’s protest.
