the videos that describe the last evening's anti-nuclear protest well

I think no one can tell how many people actually turned out, but this footage well describes how the last evening's protest went and its euphoria. It's historic.

Nice photos by Jim Grisanzio.

Hiroko Tabuchi's contribution to The New York Times.

An independent journalist Ryan, aka The Ghost Letter Reports, reports the protest with his English commentary. He says, "I bring you another special report from Tokyo. The Ghost Letter Reports was on the scene for a Anti-Nuclear protest in central Tokyo which quickly grew from 60,000 to well over 150,000 people in a matter of several minutes. This is the first of several videos which GLR will upload on this event. Please spread far and wide. Break the media blackout." He mentions that the street is totally blocked by the protesters. If you know the usual protests in Japan, you can see the significance of this.
