Antinuclear Protest - Harajuku 7.5.11

It was a throwback to the seventies, witnessing an antinuclear protest in Harajuku that rainy day on 7 th May 2011. Inching along Meiji Dori, the peaceful procession was led by a band in an open van belting out Led Zeppelins' 'Gotta a whole lotta love'.

True to form, law enforcement impeded the advancement of the protest. In Japan, bodily contact with law enforcement, intentional or otherwise, leads to arrest and a couple of guys copped it so to speak.

Those were the days my friend . . .
