Protest against the Japanese Prime Minister, Taro Aso, ends with lots of Police herding us away: Shinjuku, Tokyo

Walking back through Shinjuku tonight after shooting some pics earlier in the day and came across the start of a small protest against Prime Minister Aso. Within five minutes, 40 Police arrived and shut the megaphone off and herded us all away.

Seems if you are an ultranationalist you can drive a column of megaphone-laden vehicles all around the streets for hours, splitting people's eardrums. But if you criticise the incumbent PM, the Police arrive, shut off the megaphone and force you to leave the area.
