Aki Okuda leader of the Students Emergency Action for Liberal Democracy (SEALDs) chants in front of the Japanese Diet building during a protest against new security legislation which comes into effect form today March 29, 2016, in Tokyo, Japan. Last Tuesday, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's Cabinet decided to give the green light to a change in the interpretation of the country's post war constitution that will allow Japan's Self-Defence Forces to fight alongside the US and other allies in overseas conflicts. The new legislation could also see Japanese Self-Defence Forces dispatched to United Nations peacekeeping operations. Many Japanese oppose the new legislation and fear that it could see their country being dragged into overseas conflicts. The Abe government in turn sees the change as a chance to become more actively involved in the international community. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
