Elderly stage sit-in to block gov’t move to double burden of medical payments


Elderly people and seniors advocacy groups held a 3-day sit-in near the Welfare and Health Ministry office building in protest against the government's plan to impose heavier medical burdens on the elderly in October 2022. On the second day, Japanese Communist Party Secretariat Head Koike Akira (left) delivered a speech in solidarity and said, "Let's deliver a severe blow to the ruling forces in the House of Councilors election next summer and change the government policy disregarding elderly people's lives and human rights!"
