As the one year anniversary of the Fukushima approaches, citizens from around the world have been sending in their messages. We take these messages to the summit of Fuji, while cities like Hong Kong tell their government to end nuclear energy.

A multinational Greenpeace alpine team delivers messages of support and hope for the victims of the nuclear disaster to the summit of Mt Fuji. Collected from thousands of people in Japan and all over the world, the environmental organisation hopes that the messages will help unite the people of Japan in opposition to nuclear power, and encourage the Japanese authorities to listen to them. The climbing team is comprised of eleven alpinists from Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA scaled the mountain.
