See also the 10 minute video of the Anpo crisis (in Japanese, just watch for images and scale) that includes the sit in by the JSP (Japanese Socialist Party), the massive protests outside, and the cancellation of Eisenhower’s visit after his secretary, James Haggerty, is forced to flee by helicopter.
