The National Nuclear Abolition Action Platform, which is organizing the march, announced Thursday that it will be held to mark the fifth anniversary of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster of 2011 and raise public awareness of the dangers of nuclear power and the pressing problem of nuclear waste management.The anti-nuclear activists will also demand that the government come up with solutions to the storage of highly radioactive nuclear waste and to the problem of environmental injustice in nuclear waste siting policies.

They are also seeking the establishment of a mechanism that will allow public participation in policy-making regarding nuclear waste management.
