The Japanese Abe administration continues to restart nuclear plants in Japan threatening the health and safety disaster for the people of Japan and the world. They are also demanding that the children and families return to Fukushima or face the loss of their subsidies. This comes on the heels of a mass rally of 120,000 people in early October against changing the Japanese constitution to allow war and also against nuclear power.
Tied to this is the effort to deny the role of the Japanese Imperial Army in using “comfort women” as sexual slaves during the 2nd WW. In San Francisco Japanese consulate officials visited every Supervisor to lobby against the establishment of a memorial for the “comfort women” and their supporters personally insulted Grandmother Yongsoo Lee at the Board Of Supervisor’s meeting.
This is tied to the effort of the government to repress teachers and sanitize school books to delete the history of the crimes of the 2nd WW.
The speak out at the Japanese consulate is a possible to stand up against the restart of nuclear plants, the defense of the people of Fukushima and against the drive toward war. This is also an opportunity to link up in solidarity with the Japanese people.
We urge to come and speak out and for your organization to join us to stand up against nukes and against militarization and war.
