While being random in Tokyo, playing football, drums, hackysack and hanging out. We came by a demontration against the war in Iraq. There were shit lots of police and not that many participants in the demonstration. My friend Nei Kodama told me about the Extremely right-winged Japanese government and the few who dared to stand up and go against it. We were looking at some of the few… -his bandana says UNITE Shortly after the police started to drag people out of the demonstration. Some ended on the ground with violence, some got arrested. Nei was quickly on his feet to help the demonstration I came after. We were now in the middle of an in-fight between Japanese Police and angry “peace lovers”. I lost Nei in the middle and now only had my camera and common sense to stick with. I must say that the Adrenalin was pumping around as Japanese Police forces started to push me and yell in Japanese. There was a lot of old people in the demo. And the fight stopped quickly after. I had the taste of Japanese Police rod. Not as a Punch just as an aggressive direction guidance… the demonstration continued peacefully from there and we ended up playing some drums and had a great time! Here we are hanging out playing drums in a park, just before the demonstration took place Tomorrow we will b leaving for Nagano. I am looking forward to see the country side of Japan.
