Otaku Rally Against Racism in Akihabara

Protester declare "Otakudom Has No Borders!"

The anti-immigrant and anti-ethnic Korean demonstrations of Zaitokukai (short for Zainichi Tokken o Yurusanai Shimin no Kai - Association of Citizens against the Special Privileges of the Zainichi) have raised debates about hate speech and Japanese identity. And, this weekend, they raised the ire of otaku who organized to stage an anti-racism counter-demonstration in Akihabara this weekend.
