Thousand protest Japan military bill


Seriously, what advantage is there in using nuclear weapons except detterence(if you do this, I will wipe out all of us), almost like suicide

After the incident of Hiroshima during the second world war when an atomic bomb dropped by the United states cleared a whole town and still suffers. part of the impact of that bomb, I never expected Japan to forget so soon and drop his pacifists attitude towards conflict and wars in the global arena, and pass a bill to build an arsenal.

So just like what I said earlier, so are tens of thousands of protesters rallied outside Japan's parliament Sunday to oppose security legislation in one of this summer's biggest protests ahead of its anticipated passage next month.



"No to war legislation!" ''Scrap the bills now!" and "Abe, quit!" they chanted during the demonstration in the government district in Tokyo, filling the street outside the front gate of the parliament, or Diet.

The demonstrators oppose legislation that would expand Japan's military role under a reinterpretation of the country's war-renouncing constitution.

In July, the more powerful lower house passed the bills that allows the Self Defense Force to engage in combat for the first time since World War II when allies come under attack even when Japan itself is not.

The upper house is currently debating the bills and is expected to pass them by late September, making it law.

The participation of students and young mothers have captured media attention

Public opinion polls show majority of the people oppose the bill
