Tokyo: Around 20 angry single men came out in Tokyo on Saturday to protest what they call the commercialization of the yuletide spirit, which apparently also “discriminates” against singletons.

The group of about 20 men, believed to be part of a leftist group that frequently lashes out at Western holidays, was seen marching under angry banners reading “Smash Christmas!” in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, known as a place for holiday shopping and dating.

Around 20 angry single men came out in Tokyo on Saturday to protest what they call the commercialization of the yuletide spirit, which apparently also “discriminates” against singletons.

The group of about 20 men, believed to be part of a leftist group that frequently lashes out at Western holidays, was seen marching under angry banners reading “Smash Christmas!” in Tokyo’s Shibuya district, known as a place for holiday shopping and dating.

Another activist nicknamed Mark Water told the agency that the rally was also organized to support unengaged men. “Unpopular men, who don’t have a girlfriend or are not married, are overly discriminated [against]. We want to break this barrier,” he said.

The rally ended peacefully, with no unrest reported.

In Japan, as in some Asian countries, Christmas is not an official holiday, but celebrated informally by many couples as a romantic event.
