Via Chie Matsumoto, a reporter with LaborNet Japan:
We did it!! Revolution Hydrangea in Japan, where people say there never is a revolution. We figured nearly 100,000 were there.The Diet/PM's office area is the most restricted area for demonstrations, but we flooded onto the streets and started walking toward PM's office in hopes of getting our voices heard.Very peaceful demo. Respect to all who are determined to raise their voices until their fight is won and keep all power plants shut.
