Protest Against Expected Passage of Security Bill; Tokyo, Japan, Aug 2015

The above photo features protesters demonstrating against the expected passage of a security bill allowing Japanese troops to fight abroad. Organisers said about 120,000 people took part in the rally in the government district of Tokyo, outside the parliament, or Diet. Similar demonstrations were held across the nation.

In July, the lower house passed the bills that allow the army, or Self-Defense Forces, to engage in combat when allies come under attack even when Japan itself is not.
The upper house is currently debating the bills and is expected to pass them by late September, making it law.
