Oi Given Restart By Noda, Large Protests Mostly Ignored

In many portions of the English speaking media, Noda is being praised for “doing the right thing” for Japan. At the same time an 11,000 people protest in the middle of a work day has been mostly  ignored by both the Japanese and foreign media.

Both EX-SKF and Fukushima Diary are reporting on the large Friday protest via citizen accounts and independent media.
