Anti-war protesters gathered outside the national parliament in Tokyo, Monday, to demonstrate against measures to expand the role of the country's military. The demonstrators rallied in opposition to new "security laws" passed one month ago in the Japanese parliament by the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that have increased the role of Japan's military. The legislation is aimed at boosting Japan's military presence in the Pacific region as part of an alliance with the US to contain growing Chinese interests in the area. The reforms have proven controversial in a society historically wedded to pacifism in the wake of the destruction of World War II. Protesters say the new legislation undermines Article 9 of Japan's post-war constitution which outlaws the use of war to settle international disputes.
