(UPDATE 3) Germany's Tagesschau broadcasted the protest at Ooi Nuke plant, here. (German readers, care to translate for the rest of us?)
(UPDATE 2) Another rumor that the US's ABC and Germany's ZDF are in Ooi-cho.
The sound of drums is deafening. (I hate drums.)
(UPDATE) Journalist Ryusaku Tanaka just tweeted that the employees at the nuclear plant, since the only road to the plant is blocked by the protesters and the police, arrived to work from the ocean, using a ferry boat. Tanaka says he heard it from a taxi driver who drove them to the ferry.
Further, someone else tweeted that the riot police who suddenly showed up had climbed the mountain to get there, because the only road to the plant is still blocked.
Both pieces of information are unconfirmed.
It looks like Mr. Iwakami is on the way to the scene, bringing in supplies and rain jackets to his staff at the scene who have been netcasting the protest all night on IWJ's USTREAM Channel. Iwakami is at JR Fukui Station. Right now, it is 10 AM on July 1, 2012 in Japan.
A cleaner photo taken by someone at the scene:
There's a rumor that more riot police on the way.
