Jan. 24, 2004, more than 100 people* gathered and demonstrated with rave
sound system in Shibuya, Tokyo, against deployment of Self Defense Force
(a.k.a. Japanese Army) to Iraq. It was the fifth time of the rave
demonstration which has been organizedby the Against Street Control. First two times were huge successes. Police
were so screwed up that they had no clue where the demo was going and
asked demonstrators where to go. And many people were joined from the
roadside. At this time, too many riot police was arranged. Even they
blocked thedemonstrators to go to the roadside to handout flyers or go to the
restroom. As you can see the following pictures, we are in wartime.
Someday of the next month, ASC will arrange the next rave demo!!

Pictures of this time:

The Against Street Control is composed of DJs, underground hip hop
rappers, music critics, and non-sect radicals like anarchists and
autonomists like ACAers (Anti-Capitalism Action) who have participated in
anti-war movements.Dozens of DJs who got bored with chanting style demonstrations throughout
the last year, and radicals who divagete from conventional leftist
regimental movements got together and started the rave style
demonstration.Streets have only one meaning in a society which has a part in war(s):
transportation route for keeping the daily lives which maintain the war
footing. The rave demonstraion started to recapture the original meaning
of streets. That is, streets are the places of expressing ourselves and
encountering with others.
