About 70 Myanmarese activists and their supporters marched through central Tokyo on March 13 to protest the Japanese government’s recent decision to resume yen loans to Myanmar’s military regime.

Some of the protesters, dressed in National League for Democracy uniforms, paraded the streets with a picture of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, as they made their way from Mikawadai Park in Roppongi to the Foreign Ministry. The activists shouted slogans, urging Japan to cancel its decision to provide official development assistance to the military junta and support talks with Suu Kyi.
