Anti-nuclear protests signal new activism in Japan

Published: 08.26.12, 13:49 / Israel News

This is Japan's summer of discontent. Tens of thousands of protesters, the largest demonstrations the country has seen in decades _ descend on Tokyo every Friday evening to shout anti-nuclear slogans at the prime minister's office. Many have never protested publicly before.

"I used to complain about this to my family but I realized that doesn't do any good," said Takeshi Tamura, a 67-year-old retired office worker. "So I came here to say this to his office. I don't know if we can make a difference but I had to do something, and at least it's a start." (AP)
