aimed at expressing displeasure at the inauguration of Donald Trump as
Several hundred people, most of them expatriate Americans, held a
protest on Friday in the Japanese capital, Tokyo, against U.S.
President-elect Donald Trump, hours before his inauguration in
Washington. Some people held up electric candles and others carried
placards reading “Love Trumps Hate” and “Women’s Rights Are Human
Rights,” as they marched along a downtown street.
In the Philippines earlier on Friday, about 200 demonstrators from a
Philippine nationalist group rallied for about an hour against Trump
outside the U.S. embassy in Manila. Some held up signs demanding U.S.
troops leave the Philippines while others set fire to a paper U.S. flag
bearing a picture of Trump’s face. Trump’s presidency is being viewed
with caution in some parts of Asia. (Reuters)
