Russian troops must leave immediately! Solidarity with Ukraine! Absolutely opposed to the use of nuclear weapons! This is the Global Day of Action against Ukraine
This rally is organized by the Niigata Prefecture Peace Movement Center 新潟県平和運動センター and the Constitution Center 憲法センター.
(The following is how they describe their event:)
The horrors of war in Ukraine are reported on TV every day.
Meet at Ishinomiya Park at 10:00 a.m. on the morning of the 6th (Sun.) for a 30-minute citizens' march.
War is only destruction. Nothing will be left behind.
Just destruction, destruction, destruction, destruction of schools, universities, hospitals, destruction of life.
Destruction of children, destruction of mothers.
Domestically, they [the Japanese government] are exploiting the invasion of Ukraine, talking about nuclear sharing, saying that only force can keep the peace, that the Japan-U.S. alliance is the only way to keep the peace.
In Japan, it is an ugly campaign to exploit the invasion of Ukraine to propagandize nuclear sharing, the nuclear deterrence of the Japan-U.S. alliance, the amendment of Article 9 of Japan's constitution, and attacks on enemy bases.
The A-bomb survivors have said on TV that this is really unacceptable.
The current situation in Ukraine, which is going on right now, is something that everyone can honestly feel.
STOP WAR NOW is something that everyone can relate to.
But if we don't speak out, if we don't make it visible, [our message] won't be conveyed.
