200,000 people besiege Prime Minister's palace in Tokyo against nuclear restart

As I forecast last Friday, Japan is reaching a Tahrir moment of sorts. The usually conformist Japanese People is finally founding their strength, angry at the nuclear mismanagement and systematic corruption and power abuse at the expense of their very lives. 

At least 200,000 people rallied at Prime Minister Noda's official residence in Tokyo. However, unlike in previous demonstrations, in this case people got really angry and took over the palace, overwhelming the police forces, apparently.
