Japan: Protests in Tokyo as Trump golfs with Abe

Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Tokyo on Sunday in occasion of the 20th National Worker’s Meeting, to protest against the policies of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the visit of US President Donald Trump. Protesters contested Abe’s economic plans in the realm of company privatisation, the country’s nuclear power policies and the US troops’ presence in Japan among other... Еще things. A salient moment of the demonstration saw two impersonations of Abe and Trump laying down blocks of ‘war,’ ‘poverty,’ and ‘karoshi’ [the Japanese term for death by overwork], before being ‘arrested’ by protesters. Trump and Abe shared a round of golf on Sunday, a prelude to more formal talks on Monday. Japan is expected to seek reassurance from Trump of US commitment to security in the Asia-Pacific region and a united front against North Korea.
