Japanese Call for End to Nuclear Power

Thousands of Japanese people have taken to the streets in Tokyo, calling for a change in the government's energy policy and an end to nuclear power.

On Saturday, thousands of demonstrators rallied in Tokyo, carrying banners that read "Nuclear is old!" and "We want a shift in energy policy!" one day after Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan called for the shutdown of Hamaoka nuclear power plant in Honshu island.

Seismology experts forecast there is a 90-percent chance of a major quake in 30 years hitting the Chubu region, the central area of the country's largest island, Honshu, which encompasses the Hamaoka nuclear power plant.'
