TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Hundreds of Japanese demonstrators poured to the streets of Osaka on Friday to protest against the 14th meeting of the Group of Twenty (G20) in the city.
The protest was reportedly organized as part of the so-called ‘G20 Osaka No! Action Week.’
Demonstrators marched through the streets, carrying banners reading “G20 no welcome” and “No G20,” among others, RT reported.
The G20 is an international forum where governments and central bank governors from 20 major economies meet to share their opinions on the global situation.
The 2019 G20 summit will be held on June 28 and 29 at Osaka’s International Exhibition Centre. Security measures have been ramped up in Osaka this week, with some 32,000 police officers deployed to the city for the summit.
