On June 16th, a demonstration against militarism took place in Tokyo, with reportedly 60.000 people participating.

"...60,000 people marched against militarism by Japan on June 16. But you wouldn't know it by looking at the mainstream media. Most of the media was entirely silent..."

Hm, I wasn't able to find any hint on that event.

Hehe, I apologize for my sarcasm, but in times of global polarization and "war against terrorism" critical anti-estblishmentarian voices are not too popular. Main stream press is reluctant to pick up such topics.

soccer was too important at the time ;)

Or were the uryokudan inolved? If so, they don't make news that much like they used to do in the 70's. Besides, they're noise polution.
