`Japanese Prosecutors drop charges over the `Fukushima’ and Protestor’s rally in Tokyo over Decision’

#AceWorldNews says hundreds of protestors rallied in Tokyo on Saturday at the decision by Japanese prosecutors to drop charges over the Fukushima nuclear crisis, which some have argued was a “man-made” disaster.

In March 2011 a huge tsunami, triggered by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, crashed into the Fukushima nuclear plant, causing a meltdown that spewed radiation into the surrounding area, forcing tens of thousands of people to evacuate their homes.

A parliamentary report concluded that Fukushima was caused by Japan’s culture of “reflexive obedience” and not just the tsunami.

Campaigners have said that they will appeal the decision and continue to try and prosecute officials at the plant’s operator TEPCO for their role in the disaster.
