Signature-collection campaign against tax hike

An event asking passersby to sign in the petition calling for a decrease in the consumption tax rate to 5% from the 10% took place on October 1 in front of JR Shinjuku Station in Tokyo.

Citizens' network "Stop! Tax Hike" and the Liaison Council of Various Circles to End the Consumption Tax organized this event as part of the signature-collection campaign opposing the consumption tax increase.

Japanese Communist Party Secretariat Head Koike Akira also took part in the event, asking for support for opposition parties' joint struggle in order to achieve the tax reduction.
