I'm picking up from recent comments that there are probably too many images in the article, that it is a bit long, and too US-centric. I have addressed these three issues mainly using WP:SS. See what you think. Johnfos (talk) 07:23, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
@Johnfos: I've looked over your changes and I've a couple of questions. Firstly, you've reinserted the image of the fallout shelter sign. Do you mind sharing your rationale for including that image? Secondly, after your edits, there are still 18 pictures of people standing around holding banners. I understand that an article on a protest movement will require images of people protesting, but 18 is excessive. I'm sure readers will get the idea with fewer images. Can we remove some, please?

I've removed one more image, and hope this helps. But the remaining protest images are a diverse array and I honestly can't see scope for removing any of them. These images represent global activities over many decades. The two main areas of nuclear disarmament protests and opposition to nuclear power are covered. Many different countries and cultures are included. Different types of protests: sit-ins, human chain protests, concert protests, protests being quelled by the authorities, etc., are represented. This is what we need. Johnfos (talk) 02:52, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
@Johnfos:, thanks, it does help the article look a little cleaner. I'd grasped that the images are trying to convey the scale, history and diversity of the movement but I still can't see the need for so many of them. For example, I count about six images of protests in Germany, most of them recent. I can't see the need for so many pictures of disapproving Germans. Does a protest against nuclear weapons look different to a protest against nuclear power? I'm failing to see how myself, which makes me think that such concepts are better conveyed by the article text. Also, the image of the protest at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo is shown twice, both in the lead and in the section on 2011. There's certainly room to trim, from my perspective.

Have removed dup image, no problem. Unlike nuclear power, nuclear weapons protests often involve women's groups (see WFP image), and have religious undertones, (see NDE prayer vigil image). Regarding Germany, it is the country with the strongest anti-nuclear movement. The German images cover three main issues: nuclear power opposition, nuclear waste disposal protests about castor train transports from France, and some protests which turned violent, since the early 1970s. All good images I think, which complement the text. Johnfos (talk) 02:37, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Best not to delete any more images -- simply create an image gallery. Johnfos (talk) 02:31, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
I find it interesting that there are extensive public relations activities by the nuclear industry, which could misrepresent the risks associated with the industry to politicians and the public. -- Johnfos (talk) 02:25, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
We have many WP articles dealing with technical and economic issues of nuclear power. Perhaps the one of most relevance is Nuclear power debate. Much material added to this article already appears there, or should be moved there.
In contrast, this WP article deals mainly with underreported social and political issues, using many scholarly publications as references. Please see social movements for background information.
Also, a considerable amount of material has been deleted from this article. Deleting large portions of text really should be discussed on this Talk page first.
