Anti Nuclear Protestor Sets Himself on Fire


An anti-nuclear protestor in Taiwan has lit himself outside the legislature buildings there to protest about a new nuclear power plant.

The man was prevented from being too badly burnt by onlookers who dowsed him in water. The man had written that the nuclear plant would harm future generations "for a thousand years."

The plant in question has been partially completed, but its future is unsure as the current government is not certain it wants the plant to be finished.
