[Solidarity Message] Japan, Stop Military Buildup! Preserve Peace Constitution!

Solidarity Message to <Anti-War Coalition In Solidarity to Protect Article 9>
People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy(PSPD) has opposed the amendment of peace constitution and rearmament of Japan by Abe administration. We are very concerned about national security bills in a bid to be passed at the National Diet of Japan.
Japan must be prevented from exercising the right of collective self-defense. This will nullify the Japanese peace constitution, particularly article 9, which has served as an anchor of peace in East Asia.
This year is the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. The memories of the atrocious Japanese colonial rule and aggression in the past in many of its neighboring countries cannot be simply erased.
Japan must stop military buildup and preserve its peace constitution.
We will continue to stand in solidarity with those who are concerned about and marching for peace across Asia-pacific.
