During the meeting against the restarting of nuclear power that happens every friday, the police separated the sidewalk from the roadway with iron fences after having considered it was dangerous that people overflow on the roadway (It happened at the meeting last week and two weeks ago). The jurisdiction, Enforcement Division of Kôjimachi Police station explained in a phone interview: “It’s for the security of the crowd”. But isn’t it the same thing than to surround palestinian people saying that It’s to avoid terrorism? As I went to report about the wall of Palestine since the process of its plan, I couldn’t help comparing it.

The movement against the policy of Noda’s regime to promote nuclear power spreads. They don’t want people to have this image. It seems that their worries are increasing much stronger because the snap general election will be hold soon. Their plant scheme succeeded at first glance.

The iron fence is the last resort of PM Noda’s regime and of the Police and has a very bad reputation among the protesters.
