Asthma sufferers picket Nissan

nissanAsthma sufferers gathered outside Nissan Motor's Tokyo headquarters, demanding compensation for their suffering which, they claim, was caused by diesel gas fumes.

That according to an Agence France-Presse story, which counted about 100 protesters.

Japan began restricting diesel-fueled vehicles in 2003, and since then, asthma action groups have reached settlements with Toyota, Isuzu, Mazda and Mitsubishi. A letter from attorney Takao Nishimura accused Nissan of meeting regulations but being indifferent to the suffering caused before they were enacted.
