Indonesia. Greenpeace activists don radiation suits and parade through some of Jakarta's most crowded locations to highlight the inherent dangers of nuclear energy, before assembling in front of Indonesia's Ministry of Research and Technology. During the Global Day of action to commemorate the first anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Greenpeace is urging the Indonesian government to drop their plans for nuclear energy and instead concentrate on enabling the rapid uptake of this region's abundant clean, safe, renewable energy resources. Greenpeace is calling on the ASEAN to divert from the nuclear path it laid down in the Treaty of Bangkok and repeal the nuclear development provision in the ASEAN Energy Cooperation Plan for 2010-2015. It is also calling on the Japanese government to not restart any nuclear plants, and for a global phase out of inherently dangerous nuclear reactors.03/05/2012
