About 200 people protested in front of Shibuya Police station in Tokyo on Saturday  in support of Kurdish residents' claims that "the police brutally tackled a 33 year old resident recently, injuring his neck in the streets of Shibuya district, central Tokyo."

Kurdish people of Turkish origin and their supporters gathered to protest the police after a video spread across the Internet showing a person being held to the ground by 2 Japanese police officers.



Activists shouted "Do not discriminate against foreigners," in front of the Shibuya police station. They also denounced the Minneapolis incident of American Police killing George Floyd, an African American citizen.

The Kurdish man came from Turkey to Japan 15 years ago, got a permanent resident visa, and works at a restaurant.
