Hundreds Gather for Rally to Protest against Revising Constitution

More than 1,600 people came to a 5.3 rally in Tokyo on March 3, the Constitution Day.
People overflowed the Hibiya Open Air Music Hall with capacity of 1,900 and watched the procession on a large screen outside the hall. The event of this scale has been held for the past 10 years, and that by itself is proof that people would not allow revision of Constitution. The rally was extremely important as relocation of Futenma base was becoming more political and the government was trying to launch a constitution review committee on the day the law was to be enacted.
