According to the Asia Times Newspaper, a man drank highly flammable Petrol and then proceeded to set himself on fire.  The man was taking a stance against and protesting The Japanese Military's announcement that they will begin to deport Military Personnel Overseas.

Traditionally, Japan has always taken a "passive" attitude with respect to having their military pursue interests outside of their Country...however that RULE just changed with The Government vowing to send Military Overseas if ever necessary.

This lone protester was obviously very adamant about opposing the decision of the government and proceeded to set himself on fire as a means of protest....as shown below.
