Message of Solidarity

from People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy(PSPD)


PSPD expresses grave apprehension that the Japanese Government has currently been attempting to nullify the Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. We strongly urge the Japanese government to keep the Japan’s pledge that “Japanese people forever renounce war… and the right of belligerency of the state will not recognized” as stated in the Article 9.

The Article 9 is not only symbolic but also functioning mechanism that ensuring the Japanese government not to threat or use of force against other Asian countries. It has been also a fundamental mechanism mitigating military escalation and preserving regional peace in Asia.


We strongly believe that the Article 9 should play a critical role of building a peace community in Asia, promoting democracy and human rights and the Japanese government as well as people in Asia should show its firm resolution to uphold the Peace Constitution.

We show our support and solidarity for the Japanese civil society in urging the Japanese Government to stop any attempts to nullify the Article 9. We stand together in solidarity to keep the Peace Constitution and end the Korean War for promoting a peace system in Northeast Asia.




* The official English translation of the article reads:
ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.
