Fair use license rationale:
This picture documents a unique historic event, and is itself the subject of considerable historic interest (Pulitzer Prize, 1960 World Press Photo of the year). This incident, and the fact of its being photographed and videotaped, is one of the most notable facts of Asanuma's life and also of Yamaguchi's. As such it is non-replaceable by a free image and legitimate fair-use.
