Japan: World AIDS Day Series and the Red Walk

As a part of wAds (World Aids Day Series) [jp], the HIV/AIDS prevention and education campaign taking place between October and December, many people this year have again participated in the Red Walk in Tokyo. As blogger Koji describes at Koji no Shiiteki Nikki [Kojiの恣意的日記], on the 30th of November [jp], hundreds of young people dressed in red gathered in the morning at Yoyogi Park to walk around the whole Shibuya Ward until the afternoon, in order to stimulate public debate on the AIDS issue.
