It was a rainy day in Tokyo on July 6th 2012. Yet, the Anti-Nuclear protesters still came out at the Japanese PM’s official office to again attempt to get his ear. Although, this time was different. The police were ready for it. Access was very limited. As you can see in this video, they were not letting people pass into the area. I was not allowed to get any closer than what you saw in this video. After getting this footage, I started tweeting the event and posting pics.
At 5:30 in
[Police are] not allowing anyone to get near it. Not allowing anyone to join. They’ve clamped down on protesting here… we’re not allowed to get anywhere near it.
