Demonstrators are seen at a Dec. 19, 2016 protest in front of the Diet building in Tokyo against security legislation allowing Japan Self-Defense Forces (SDF) peacekeepers to perform "rush and rescue" missions. Organizers say some 3,000 people turned out for the demonstration, chanting, "Absolutely against rush and rescue!"
