The Party to Protect the People from NHK (Japanese: NHKから国民を守る党, NHK kara Kokumin o Mamoru Tō), also known as N-Koku (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 continuing of intimidating behavior 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. "Crash NHK!").
The official English name has not been announced yet, but it was written as "Guard the national from NHK" on its own leaflet in 2016.
