FUKUSHIMA FALL-OUT

Protesters link arms around the world to decry nuclear power:

PARIS — Tens of thousands of anti-nuclear protesters across the globe called for an end to nuclear power as they marked the first anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami at Japan's Fukushima power plant.

In Japan, tens of thousands rallied near the crippled plant, demanding an end to nuclear power as the nation held memorial ceremonies for a disaaster that claimed almost 20,000 lives.

Demonstrators in France's Rhone valley formed a human chain that organisers said stretched for 230 kilometres (140 miles) and consisted of about 60,000 people. The region has Europe's highest concentration of nuclear reactors, demonstrators said.

France's 58 nuclear reactors generate about 75 percent of the country's electricity, making it the world's most nuclear-dependent nation. Activists across Germany carried out similar protests, with organisers claiming as many as 50,000 people turned out across the country.
