The organizers of the September 19th rally against nuclear power were hoping to bring 50,000 people to participate in the rally, but it turned out more than 60,000 gathered at Meiji Park in Tokyo on Monday according to the organizers. The police says 25,000 but no surprise. Some TV stations reported the rally on their news programs, but NHK’s 7 o’clock news on the same day completely ignored it.
Anyway, here’s the news coverage by Australia’s ABC:
A photojournalist Takashi Morizumi published photos of the event on his blog:
