A small protest against the TPP trade agreement (Trans- Pacific Partnership) took place outside the Ministry Of the Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in Kasumigaseki, Tokyo, Japan. on Friday February 5th 2016. The Trans Pacific Partnership, one of the biggest multinational trade deals ever made was signed by ministers from the 12 member nations, including Japan, in New Zealand on Thursday February 4th. Though this protest was small, many people on both the left and the right of politics in Japan are against the TPP agreement which they fear will affect Japanese agriculture and health industries, among others, by forcing American competition onto them.
