Headline only in Oita Press (5/22/2012):
Residents who oppose the acceptance of disaster debris to Kitakyushu City blocked the trucks that carry the debris from Ishinomaki City in Miyagi Prefecture to the Waste Collection Depot in the city.
Apparently, all it took was about 30 residents.
And the police to the rescue of the trucks. (Photo from Mr. Kenichi Hirose, who seems to be right there at the location.)
Yasumi Iwakami's IWJ has a mobile live feed:

They are saying 20-plus trucks are still waiting across the channel.
Snippets from the live video:
A reporter from Kahoku Shinpo (local newspaper in Fukushima): "As long as the air radiation levels are the same, it will be OK." (He is immediately lectured by the IWJ staff.)
A middle-aged woman to a city employee: "It is the matter of how you live as a human being. I want you to think as a parent, as a human being. Are you going to be on the side of human beings, or on the side of your position in the government?"
It looks the city employees, guards, and the media people are inside the gate. Protesters and the truck are outside the gate.
