Anti nuclear protest in Suginami was started at East Koenji on Sunday afternoon.
I arrived in Koenji nearly at 4ish. It was already quiet Koenji area when I arrived there.
I realized protests already moved forward Minami Asagaya next of Koenji.
Minami Asagaya is only 10 minute cycling from Koenji. I rushed to join them.
I heard the huge sounds of protest gradually towards Minami Asagaya JR station.
At first I have seen the farmers from Namie village, Fukushima were making speech by the main street of there. I have seen his speech in Tokyo a several times thorough internet live streaming. His speech is very strong and appealing the current misery circumstances of the animals in no go zone in Fukushima. I remember that he gave up dairy by the on going nuclear disaster as well. Unfortunately not many people cared his speech much. Tokyo people seemed to do not want to remind it anymore.
I have seen massive protests after cross the JR bridge, and there were too many police as well. The area I joined them was just near ending point of today’s demonstration.
Still many people were hanging around. The clowns were provoking the police.
I was regret to arrive late. I thought it continue till night, but it was done around 5 o’clock.
Some already walked to JR station and some were looking for cafe to have a coffee after the event.
Anyway it was the biggest event in Suginami since the last spring.
Yes, it is already nearly for a year.
I am expecting the next event in Suginami.
Suginami is most remarkable area for protest in Tokyo.
