Net citizens in Japan are planning for large demonstrations in front of the Prime Minister's Official Residence in Tokyo and in front of the Kansai Electric Power Company (KEPCO) headquarters in Osaka on Friday June 15, 2012.
If you are in the area (whether you live in Japan or are traveling in Japan), stop by and take in the atmosphere, and feel free to report your experience here in the comment section. (As someone commented in one of the posts about Ooi Nuke Plant restart, the Japanese media do pay a bit more attention if they see people who don't look like native Japanese.)
Last Friday, 4,000 people of all walks of life gathered in front of the Prime Minister's Official Residence to protest the then-ongoing press conference by Noda in which he said he would restart Ooi Nuke Plant to "protect the people's living". The organizers are hoping to have 10,000 people or larger this Friday.
I've been asked if I could spread the information to the foreign residents in Japan by writing a post, so here it is.
Information from a @twitnonukes on the demonstrations is as follows, from their website (I added the addresses):
Date: June 15, 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.
Probably by Friday, PM Noda is expected to make his final decision (foregone conclusion, as we all know). And then he's off to Mexico, I hear, to attend G20 meeting.
