Anti-Abe Protesters Clash With Police as Prime Minister Holds Final Election Rally

A rally held by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was met with protesters in Akihabara, Tokyo, on July 20, as the Liberal Democratic Party leader made a final plea to voters ahead of elections to the upper house of the National Diet on July 21. Anti-LDP demonstrators carried a multitude of signs which ranged in message, from depicting Abe alongside a swastika to demands for pensions to be returned. Videos from the scene show an anti-fascist flag being waved. Protesters clashed with police officers and a heavy security presence remained in place after Abe’s rally had ended, Nikkei’s live blog reported. Credit: Thoton via Storyful
