There is an anti-nuclear group in Japan who set up and has maintained a tent before the office building of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Tokyo.
First the Japanese police tried to drive them out, but the lot where they set up the tent was not part of public street. The police could not apply the traffic law. The place is within the premises of the Ministry's building.
Then the Ministry tried to oust them from the corner in the premises in vain. Protesters have never troubled business of the Ministry. No obstruction has been made to workers and visitors to the Ministry. Staff of the Ministry handed warning notices to the anti-nuclear protesters in several times but they didn't leave the site.
So, now the Ministry has taken the case to a Tokyo court.
Japanese people have a right to made a demonstration. The society supports anti-nuclear demonstrations. So, as long as they do not interfere with business of the Ministry, they are essentially entitled to use a public space to appeal to the government for their anti-nuclear cause.
There are always several demonstrators in the tent of a size of an RV car 24 hours a day, every day since September 2011.
It is said those demonstrators are mostly ex-students of the anti-Vietnam War era of late 1960s and early 1970s.
