On Abefs dangerous move towards constitutional revision: JCP Shii on Constitution Day

JCP Chair Shii said, gWe should not underestimate the danger. This move, however, is dramatically widening the gap between the Abe Cabinet and the public and the gap between the cabinet and the world.h

 

Cabinet establishes advisory council to pave the way for exercising collective self-defense right

gThe U.S. invaded Vietnam and Nicaragua, and the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan under the pretext of exercising the right of collective self-defense. The right of collective self-defense is an argument to justify aggressions,h JCP Secretariat Head Ichida said.

 

May Day rallies take place at 369 locations across Japan

gLet us advance the social struggle to repel the increasing poverty and disparities and form a majority of the public in opposition to adverse revision of the Constitution by advancing grassroots movements!h JCP Chair Shii said.
