 Shareholders of Japan’s electricity companies voted on Wednesday to reboot nuclear power in Japan. 200,000 people hit the streets yesterday to protest this.

The people of Japan are outraged over the continued push for nuclear reactor restarts in Japan. They protested at the door of the residence of Japanese Prime Minister, Yoshihiko Noda, yesterday.

In the brief video clip above, protesters are chanting, “No to the restarts!”

Despite widespread public opposition, Noda approved the restart of two reactors at Kansai Electric’s Oi plant in Fukui Prefecture on June 16. Since then there have been regular protests outside of his residence.

However, according to Japan Times, Friday’s protest was probably the biggest yet, as organizers estimated the turnout to be over 200,000 people.
