Protesters dumped something on the door step of the KMT political party headquarters during the same evening. The running theme has been that you can’t burn nuclear waste, it never goes away. The KMT party has been the main supporter of nuclear power in Taiwan. We explain here why nuclear power in Taiwan is so dangerous. The focus of much of the current effort in Taiwan is to prevent the problem plagued number 4 nuclear plant from going into operation.
