The Party to Protect the People from NHK
The Party to Protect the People from NHK (Japanese: NHKから国民を守る党, NHK kara Kokumin wo Mamoru Tō), also known as N-Koku (NHKから国民を守る党, N国) is a Japanese political party founded on June 17, 2013 by activist Takashi Tachibana, a former employee of Japan's national broadcasting organization NHK and a member of the Funabashi city assembly in Chiba Prefecture. He resigned NHK's accounting position in 2005 after exposing internal corruption. Before long experiencing intimidating behaviour by NHK television license bill collectors, the party issues special stickers to chase off broadcast-reception bill collectors from citizens' properties. The party's slogan is "NHK o Bukkowasu!" (Japanese: NHKをぶっ壊す！, lit. Destroy NHK!).
