Fukushima three years after from Reuters

I mentioned the third anniversary of the earthquake, tsunami, and meltdown last month in Fukushima radiation being monitored in U.S. kelp beds, but now the occasion is upon us.  Reuters has covered the event with three videos so far.  First, Candlelight vigil and protest ahead of Fukushima three-year anniversary.
