Morning Protest (Update)

by

Ate dinner at my favorite restaurant tonight. Watched the news with the owner and talked about the morning protest. Apparently this was the first time a court in the Tokai (東海) region has used the semi-jury system; hence the intense attention from protestors and news media. Estimated size of the group at the courthouse was 731 people. (Yes, that is a Japanese ‘estimate’.)

It should be interesting to see how things shake out at the courthouse, and longterm for this new system.
