"Japan, I am angry!" "Keep our Pacific nuclear-free!"

On Aug 25, hundreds of Fijians marched on the streets of their capital Suva, raising their voices strongly against Japan's dumping of nuclear-contaminated wastewater into the Pacific Ocean.

The protesters, led by Fijian NGO Coalition on Human Rights, called for international action to halt Tokyo's move and to protect the ocean and future generations.
