200,000anti nuclear protestors surround Japanese Parliament
PHOTOS and VIDEOS Sunday Protest 200,000 Surround Diet Building http://www.simplyinfo.org/?p=6962 July 29th, 2012Protests started at 3pm JST and went on into the night with marches to TEPCO, METI and a candlelight protest back at the Diet. Two were arrested for obstructing the police and there were periodic scuffles with police. Organizers estimate about 200,000 attended.
People who showed up were spread around the diet building crowded on sidewalks making it hard to obtain a visual of everyone. News media did sent out a helicopter, a few aerial shots can be seen in various videos. Protests as many previous ones included a broad cross section of people participating in the protests. PM Noda is still hinting that he wants 15% nuclear power in Japan, something that would require restarting most of the reactors and would be highly unpopular with the public.
Most media outlets in Japan did cover this protest unlike other large ones that went without media attention. Embedded videos can be found at these links.
