Japan protests against changes to pacifist constitution

Japanese demonstrators have taken to the street across the country to protest against the government's move in revising the constitution.

Tuesday is Japan's Constitution Day, a date to mark the enforcement of its postwar Constitution. The pacifist document was drafted by the US at the end of World War Two.

But the Japanese government passed a legislation months ago to lift a ban on its armed forces to fight overseas. It's the biggest shift in the constitution in decades. Protesters say the changes make Japan more likely to engage in foreign wars.
