Shinjuku Station "destroyed" in 1968?![edit]

Under the "Criminal incidents", it states "On October 21, 1968, groups of extremist students celebrating 'International Antiwar Day' occupied and destroyed Shinjuku Station in Tokyo." In support of this claim, there is a footnote to a book. However, on the Shinjuku Station WP entry, under "History", it reads "The station was a major site for student protests in 1968 and 1969, the height of civil unrest in postwar Japan." There's a bit of a difference between being "a major site for protests" and being "destroyed". Can anyone explain the extent of damage that was actually done to the station in '68 by the student group? Bricology (talk) 20:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I wrote that part but "destroyed" might not be a good choice of word. Actual situation was like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnrgvmxEkdQ. Well, "rampaged"? --Sushiya (talk) 22:30, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Changed it to "vandalized," for the time being. --Sushiya (talk) 14:52, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
