People, some holding kids, gathered in a demonstration in front of the Diet building in Tokyo on July 13, 2012, to protest the recent restart of a reactor at the Oi nuclear power station in Fukui Prefecture.

The rally was part of a demonstration held every Friday evening in front of the nearby prime minister's official residence.
