Photo Journal: Angry about Abe


Demonstrators walk through the streets of Tokyo's bustling Shibuya Ward in protest of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's administration, calling out slogans such as "Raise the minimum wage," "Don't dispatch the Self-Defense Forces overseas," and "Don't restart nuclear reactors." About 2,000 people came out for the march, according to organizers.

    At a pre-march rally in Yoyogi Park's Keyaki Namiki street, former economy ministry bureaucrat Shigeaki Koga said through a loudspeaker, "The export of nuclear reactors, the export of weapons, and aspirations to become a gambling hub is an evil economic growth strategy."

    Representatives from the opposition Democratic Party, Japanese Communist Party, the Social Democratic Party, and the Liberal Party called out to the crowd, "What should be changed is not our Constitution, but the Abe administration."
