A steady diet of Corporatism.

"About 40 people took part in a boisterous protest Tuesday afternoon criticizing the government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and its attempt to railroad the bill through the Diet."

"Kumiko Inoue, 65, a regular participant in the protests, said she is worried that the bill’s vague phraseology will essentially allow the government to choose at will what it wants to deem state secrets."

“The bill perhaps wouldn’t affect your life if you’re just going to spend your days watching TV or something,” she said. “But suppose you’ve suddenly become a vaccine victim and want to protest the way the government handles your claim. Chances are it will say your protest activity is equal to terrorism and quash it.”

"Teens hurt or disabled by cervical cancer vaccines have waged a campaign to halt the state-subsidized immunization program."
