The unique status of Japan, as a country with no active military, stands to be diluted today as the right-wing PM Shinzo Abe is going to bring security laws in the parliament undermining the Article-9 of the Japanese constitution that prohibits it from keeping an army and resorting to belligerence in international affairs.
25th January 2014 was observed as the national day of protest against the India-Japan nuclear agreement, which was a key agenda during the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s recent visit to India. The poster protest initiated by CNDP received very good response from the people.
The campaign launched by the Coalition for Disarmament and Peace(CNDP) against the India-Japan nuclear agreement, which has been in pipeline for several years and is likely to be culminated during the Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Shinzo Abe’s upcoming visit to New Delhi, has recieved extremely encouraging response from people all over the world, especially in India and Japan. For us, this support vindicates our firm belief that this nuclear agreement is anachronistic, absurd and unacceptable to people in Japan who are witnessing a still unfolding disaster in Japan, and people in India who are brutally silenced by their government indulging in nuclear expansion misadventure. It is heartening to see that this camaign has received solidarity from people across the world who realise the risks of nuclear energy in a post-Fukushima world.
