Protesters take part in an anti-nuclear demonstration demanding a stop to the resumption of nuclear power operations in Tokyo via AlertNet

Protesters take part in an anti-nuclear demonstration demanding a stop to the resumption of nuclear power operations, in front of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s official residence in Tokyo June 29, 2012. More than 15,000 anti-nuclear protesters blocked streets outside the Japanese prime minister’s office on Friday, beating drums and chanting slogans against the planned restart of reactors nearly sixteen months after the world’s worst nuclear disaster in 25 years. The gathering crowd quickly blocked off a six-lane road and adjoining streets leading to the Prime Minister Noda’s official residence in central Tokyo, forcing police to constantly shift barricades as at least four helicopters circled overhead.

    This gathering was big. Even though I was there in the thick of it, I didn’t grasp just how big it was until I got home and viewed the aerial footage via the Iwakamiyasumi2 Ustream channel which looked to me like a lot more than 15000.
