Protest in Funabashi, Chiba (PM Noda's Hometown) Again, June 30 from 2PM, Demanding Halt of Ooi Restart and Noda Resignation

Sorry for the last minute notice for the readers in Japan.

Inspired by the fun and successful protest march through the city of Funabashi in Chiba on June 24 organized by a anti-nuclear group in Suginami-ku, Tokyo, a different group is doing the protest in the hometown of Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda.

(For June 24 Funabashi protest, see my post here, here and here.)

The organizers say they will be protesting against the restart of Ooi Nuclear Power Plant and demanding PM Noda to resign.

The protest will be at the JR Funabashi Station, from 2PM to 4PM.

Apparently Mr. Noda is very much dismayed at the protests happening in his hometown.

If you're not going, you can still view the USTREAM netcast at Yasumi Iwakami's channel, here:

People are already gathering.

I wonder if the pubs and restaurants and coffee shops in Funabashi City are offering "demo discount" again...

After volunteering in Japan last summer on the coast north of Sendai cleaning up debris, I'm still shocked with how poor the reporting is here in the U.S. and how ignorant the politicians and the nuclear industry believe the citizens in both countries are. I'm happy to see citizens in Japan protesting on a massive scale for the safety and health of all Japanese. GREAT JOB!

I'm wondering if this is going to become an every-Saturday event.
By the way, has anyone found out whether and where Noda's mother lives?
Perhaps she can teach her son some empathy.
