Triggered by the disaster in March 2011, a wave of protests sparked in Japan, directed primarily against the Government, the Nuclear Regulation Authorities and the energy company TEPCO. Street protests were previously considered a rare sight, but the activists of the "uprising of the amateurs organised themselves for nearly a month after the disaster, the largest demonstration in Japan since the '70s. 15,000 people demonstrated against nuclear power, and for most it was about more than just stopping the nuclear phase. The documentary Radioactivists accompanies the protest movement and lets the criticisms about poor working and living conditions and the lack of freedom for personal development be ever louder heard. Radioactivists shows a completely new, previously unknown and exciting view of Japan.
