What does the police in Tokyo protect?
As the news of the Finance Ministry's public document-tampering, thousands of people gathered in front of the Prime Minister's official residence in Tokyo on the evening of March 16th to ask for resignation of the cabinet .
Anyway many policemen surrounded the people and forced them not be able to move. The police generated dangerous situation and several people were injured as results.
The police blocked not only the sidewalks but also the crosswalks.
The police blocked the entrances of the subway. Unbelievable.
The police also hindered getting off from taxis.
Japanese media do not report this situation. It means that democracy in Japan is on the brink of dying today.
I hope many international media will report.
Another gathering is planned on 23rd March.
