Meanwhile, Liu said the banners are not only of interest to Taiwanese.

Some have sent banners to their friends overseas, in places such as Germany, Japan and Hong Kong, Liu said, adding that the friends have uploaded pictures of themselves with the banners so that they can participate in an anti-nuclear photo album event.

The event was launched by the association on Feb. 25, when 25 volunteers held banners outside the Executive Yuan and submitted a copy of the album to signify their resolution to oppose the installation of fuel rods at the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant.

Liu said the association plans to camp out on Ketagalan Boulevard tomorrow night and then raise the banner at dawn on Sunday in front of the Presidential Office.

The association plans to continue producing the banners after the protest to maintain the momentum of the anti-nuclear movement, Liu said.
