Japan: News in Japanese for Iran Election Protests

You can't get really the details of the Iran election protests from the Japanese newspapers and TV stations, but the situation is updated by the minute on Twitter.” – Hiroto Kobayashi set up iranelection, a Digg-style news aggregator specifically for this topic, where users are submitting links to content in any language with a short intro in Japanese.

  • I’m glad to see the Japanese caring about the situation in Iran. I’m sorry the media isn’t covering it. I would love to have any my original articles posted on this site. Since it’s in Japanese, I really can’t submit. You can see my site #IranElection at http://trending.zachshouse.org
