This footage, from a recent meeting of indignant Japanese citizens and feckless Japanese government types should be a little shocking. Sadly, it's just more of the same—ineptitude and inaction. Buy denying the right to avoiding radiation? OK, shocking. The Tokyo meeting was meant to broach the push to expand the evacuation zone around Fukushima—a zone that's proven inadequately and dangerously narrow. One Fukushima resident asks, "As other people do, people in Fukushima have the right to avoid the radiation exposure and live a healthy life, too. Don't you think so?"
It's not only the expression on his face.

The expression the man has on his face isn't one of "I will not tell you" but one of "I won't tell you, because I can't tell you. I'm not allowed to.". It is really sad what they are doing there but I do not expect different from the Japanese government. They are very predictable
Someone more familiar with Japanese culture than I am can confirm this (or not), but isn't that what the video shows? The people rising up? But I don't know how much more rowdy they will get than that? My friend who lived there said Japan was a very ordered society, which gave me the impression that video would be considered pretty rowdy for Japan.
