Taiwan nuclear protesters visit Australia

In Taiwan on April 27 more than one hundred NGOs acted in unison and held the second anti-nuclear rally of this year. Anti-nuclear activists came together holding all-night sit-ins, staging mass rallies, and fighting riot police and water cannon on the street. Their immediate goal was to demand that the government halt the construction of the accident-ridden Lungmen nuclear plant. In the long term the goal is to close down the nuclear power industry in Taiwan. To find out more about the anti-nuclear movement in Taiwan, Des Lawrence spoke to Shi Ting of the Green Citizens’ Action Alliance who is currently visiting Australia.
