The protest should be covered in japan's prime time news on all major networks. Japanese people are being cheated. The media sells it, they live the role.

Good on these people. It's a shame they would have a better chance of being heard in China, despite trying to emulate it.

Pretty soon, some media expert is going to come up with a CCP's version of Godwin's law.

And no. In China, an organized protest must be approved by the central government and if not, the consequences are that of Tianamen Square in 1989.

" media is loath to go against a sitting PM and his policies "

It certainly is the case with Abe but not always, they sure hounded DPJ and especially Kan and his ministers when he was in charge, about even the.smallest thing. Media seem to be in the LDP pocket and many are stacked with LDP blessed amakudari management puppets.

Nothing but respect to these people. And not just any rain, in the middle of a typhoon.

As much as I keep seeing and reading about these protests here on JT, I rarely see it being covered on TV news.

You wont because the media is loath to go against a sitting PM and his policies. They dont want to be kicked out of the "club" of lapdogs that run around the Diet fighting for scraps of information to report.

For how often and for such large numbers that are gathering for this important matter, it's a real shame this isn't being put into peoples living rooms more often.

A nice picture to symbolize the resistance against Abe's policies.
