− Letter to Japanese P.M. Shinzo Abe −



中東では、2014年8月から2017年3月まで米軍主導有志連合による空爆回数がイラクに11,178回と、シリアに7,487回に達しています(英国「BBC NEWS」による)。
日本は1954年以来、米国の「要請(=Atoms for Peace)」を受けて原発建設に踏み切り、54基にも上るその稼働を通じて核技術開発を進め、「潜在的核兵器保有国」を実現するに至りました。今や日本の自衛隊も、核武装した米軍の指揮の下に「集団的自衛権」に基づく海外派兵も実現しています。

Mr. Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan

We demand, “Do not play with the nuclear!”
The United States is the only country that used indiscriminate mass murder weapons,Nuclear Bombs, in an actual warfare. We should not forget a war crime committed by the United States 72 years ago: dropping two nuclear bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki which instantaneously robbed the lives of over 200,000 civilians and caused slow and painful deaths of as many as 600,000 people. Moreover, to this day the United States, along with Russia, still holds 7,000 nuclear bombs, and it continues to threaten the world.
The BBC News reported that in the Middle East, from August 2014 to March 2017, the number of air strikes by the U.S. Army-led coalition reached 11,178 in Iraq and 7,487 in Syria.

On the Korean Peninsula, the United States has sent two aircraft carriers, the Carl Vinson and Ronald Reagan, and the U.S. and its allies, Japan and Korea, are building up a military tension which in a moment could very easily turn into a full-blown war with the Republic of North Korea and China.
Since 1954, at the urging of the United States, so-called “Atoms for Peace,” Japan has initiated the construction of nuclear power plants, which has resulted in the operation of 54 nuclear reactors all over Japan. Under the disguise of peacetime uses of atomic energy, Japan has developed nuclear technology and has become a nation which could readily develop nuclear weapons at a moment’s notice. The Japanese government nowadays is exercising its right to collective self-defense by allowing its Self Defense Forces to be deployed overseas under the command of the US military armed with nuclear weapons.
The two major conflicts currently underway in the world, one in the Middle East and Europe (Syria, Iraq and Russia vs. the United States and NATO) and the other surrounding Korean Peninsula (North Korea and China vs. the United States, South Korea and Japan) are both motivated by the nuclear arms race. They may lead to serious consequences and should not be taken lightly. Threatening with indiscriminate mass murder weapons called nuclear weapons inevitably invites a third world war. The present and future of all human race is being held hostage.
The Government of Japan should return to the spirit of the preamble and Article 9 of the Constitution, abandon the nuclear technology development, stop participating in the preparation of war, and demand United Nations and governments around the world abandon all military power including nuclear weapons. We will continue to call out to people of the world, including the United States and Japan, to stand with us in the fight for the world without nuclear, without war.

Sincerely Yours,

For Los Angeles Anti-Nukes, Anti-War, Nikkei Community Roundtable
Sam Kanno
