It's Friday in Japan, and that means Ooi restart protests are on again in Tokyo and Osaka. The same time, the same places in Tokyo (at PM's Official Residence) and Osaka (KEPCO's headquarters).
From people at ".@TwitNoNukes":
Date: Friday, June 29, 2012
Time: from 6PM
Prime Minister's Official Residence [東京都千代田区永田町２丁目３−１ 2-3-1 Nagata-cho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, google map]
Kansai Electric Power Company headquarters [大阪市北区中之島3丁目6番16号 3-6-16 Nakanoshima, Kita-ku, Osaka City, google map]
Please refrain from carrying political signs not related to "anti-nuclear".
Please follow the general guidance from the organizers.
This Friday, someone (I think it is Yasumi Iwakami's outfit) is flying a helicopter to capture the scene from the air. Not just for dramatic effect but also for refuting people who have tried their best to snicker at the number claimed by organizers (total 45,000) and downplay the significance of the protests. They will analyze the visual images from the helicopter and estimate the crowd size, I hear.
For those of you who go, be safe. "Agents provocateurs" may be there, claiming to be anti-protest and pro-nuke right wing, talking trash, like this one last week.
