European-style demonstration? 750 join anti-nuke “Drumming Demonstration”

750 participants in an anti-nuke “Drumming Demonstration”, which was held in the Shibuya district, central Tokyo on October 9, 2011, demanded the abolition of nuclear power plants and denuclearization by drumming and playing various instruments. One of the demonstrators, a 30-year old woman living in Tokyo, said, “I was a little nervous about participating in today’s march as many demonstrators were unlawfully arrested in the previous demonstrations. But I was able to express my feelings happily today without intimidation from the police”. Another demonstrator, a man in his 50s who was actively playing the flute, said, “I think we succeeded in expressing our wishes thanks to a small number of policemen, probably because of no loud music, so I suppose this march was similar to that in Europe”.

10月9日東京・渋谷で行われた「怒りのドラムデモ」には、打楽器を中心にチャルメラ、ギター、指笛と、750人がそれぞれ思い思いのサウンドで、原発廃止や脱原発を訴えた。デモ後に参加者に話を聞いてみた。目黒区在住の30歳の女性は、「9月11日や23日に警察官によりたくさんの人が不当逮捕されたので、今日のデモに参加するのには少しの勇気が必要だった。ところが、警察官がほとんどいなく、嫌がらせもなく、楽しくアピールすることができた」。チャルメラを吹きっぱなしで疲れたと言っていた50歳代の男性は、「今日はずいぶんとアピールできたと思います。サウンドカーやアンプがなく、また市民参加型ということで、警察の警備も少なかったのでしょう。ヨーロッパのデモに近かったのではないでしょうか」と語っていた。(ジョニーH)・動画(YouTube)  *写真=ムキンポさん

In the spring of 1928, Disney asked Ub Iwerks to start drawing up new character ideas. Iwerks tried sketches of various animals, such as dogs and cats, but none of these appealed to Disney. A female cow and male horse were also rejected. They would later turn up as Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar.A male frog, also rejected, would later show up in Iwerks' own Flip the Frog series. Walt Disney got the inspiration for Mickey Mouse from his old pet mouse he used to have on his farm
