can’t get out of the subway station “Kokkaigijidomae (= in front of National Diet)”. Police shut down all the exits except for just one. It’s completely under control. but people are yelling against restart of nuclear plants underground.

It’s too huge to go to official residence! This is beyond the protest in front of official residence, but is the protest in the center of national center.

I’m in front of official residence. There are more than 100,000 people. Police blockaded the public street in front of Member of the House of Representatives meeting place to violate the right of petition.

At “Kokkaigijidomae (= in front of National Diet)” station. Police is blockading the exits for the reason that outside is too full. People are arguing with police.

<End>

Riot police made the “breakwater” in front of official residence by using 6 cars to prevent people from joining. However, people are yelling “No restart” like a storm. It’s started raining hard.

<End>

Police is shutting down the exits of subway station one after one, people are stuck underground to come late. They can’t get out, platform and ticket gates are full like Sushi, women are screaming. Cabinet of Noda is trying to oppress the voice of people. It was really dangerous today.

just back from in front of official residence. Today I got out of the exit No.4 of Kokkaigijidomae (= in front of National Diet) station (Only exit No4 was open.) but it was so full of people, took me so much time to get out. Police shut down other exits for security, people couldn’t get out to come late. From next time, maybe they should walk from further stations.

<End>

The streetlights were turned off, maybe it was for that reason? > Maybe government doesn’t want us to take the picture of “official residence surrounded by people” never again. It had that much impact.

I think a lot of people were irritated today. Subway exits were blockaded by police, the queue was made long, finally arrived at Kasumigaseki (government district) but kept on the corner of the sidewalk. However, people kept yelling “No restart”. It was raining hard but they didn’t stop.
