Tens of thousands of trade unionists, citizens, and several hundreds of evacuees from Fukushima partcipated in the event

The initiative of "good bye nuclear plant" rally was took by pro-SDP trade union leadership. But nearly 5,000 activists of the JCP-led trade union federation "Zenrohren" and several far left groups also joined the sucessful rally and demonstration.
