The Occupy Tokyo anti-nuclear protest outside the METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) buildings in Tokyo was invigorated on Friday June 29th as the many of the women who originally started the protest returned to campaign against Prime Minister Noda's plans to reactivate Japan's nuclear generation power-station in Oi, Fukui Prefecture. Japan's nuclear generation capabilities have been stalled since the March 11th 2001 earthquake and tsunami caused meltdowns and radiation leaks at Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant.
The protest started at 1pm at the "Keisanshoumae Tent-Hiroba' (tent village) that has been growing outside the METI offices since September 2011. This was followed by a short march to a meeting with female politicians in the Member's Office Building of the House of Councillors. About 300 to 350 participants took part in this meeting.

After this many of the women took apart in the large protest against the restarting of the nuclear programme that took place in front of the Prime Minister's Official Residence from 6pm to 8pm.
