You should have seen the anti-Abe anti-war rally today outside of Shinjuku Station. It was huge, and I've never seen anything on that scale in my 35 years living in Shinjuku from the time I was born. THERE IS HOPE!!!

Top center guy is from The Little Teapot Party.

The hand on hip, ganbaro! gesture is as camp as a row of tents.

Ah yes, the curiously named Liberal Democratic that is neither Liberal nor Democratic. Headed by a wannabe dictator.

They are showing the "Nuclear Go" sign with the fist in the air. =Put the decrepit plants back online and lets start emitting some particles. Since they will be leaking anyway -at least get some energy out of them. Abe is showing good form here and has obviously practiced in the mirror some. Probably a whole summer of "Nuclear Go" ahead = Nuclear media propaganda almost every day.

Notice: No crazy USA-style neoLib protesters trying to instigate chaos.

They look like getting all pumped up and excited having never been more ready.

I'm clasping my hands together and praying real hard. If that nutsack gets reelected you can change this nation's name from Japan to Inferno, and change the Welcome to Japan signs in the airports to Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.

@Gokai: there's not hope until Japan is forced to do whatever the US want.
