# Resist neo-liberal globalization! Defend the rights of workers and people!
Prolonged global economic and financial crisis have given serious impact to workers and people in the world. Also in Japan, the living condition of workers and people has been getting worse because of neoliberal policies that the government and monopoly capitalists have promoted. They have also promoted conclusion of bilateral/multilateral FTA and EPA, sacrificing domestic farmers and rights of workers. As the result, the poverty expand among people and more than one of three workers are employed as irregular worker now. We fight fight against such neoliberal agenda and defend the right of workers and people.
# Withdraw all the U.S. bases from Asia and the rest of the world!
We oppose imperialist war of aggression and any kind of military intervention under the U.S.-led military alliances. The united states keep many U.S. bases in Japan by Japanese government's host nation support. The U.S. troops stationed in Japan have send even to Iraq and Afghanistan in order to carry out their military operation. Recently the U.S. and Japanese governments have planed to consolidate further U.S. bases in Okinawa, Iwakuni and Kanagawa, regardless of broad people's opposition. We oppose strengthening U.S.-Japan military alliance and fight to withdrawal of all the U.S. bases from Japan, Asia and the rest of the world.
# Shut down all nuclear power plants!
A heavy earthquake and a tsunami wave in Fukushima, Japan, on 11 March 2011 have caused one of the most serious catastrophe in the history of nuclear power plant. It clearly proved that the production of nuclear power is incalculably risky and uncontrollable with the current level of technology. Japanese government and electric power monopolies still persist to maintain nuclear power plant but people's movement against nukes is growing rapidly in every cities. We demand that the government shut down all the nuclear power plants immediately and adopt the renewable energy policy.
# Oppose racist attacks!
We oppose racist attacks against Korean in Japan and migrant workers,etc. In the deepening of class contradiction, activities of racist groups in Japan become active than before. Their activities are encouraged by the government's racist policies such as exclusion of Korean School from tuition-free subsidy program, etc. With broad concerned people, we fight against racism and discrimination.
# Strengthen international solidarity to resist imperialist plunder and war!
In order to organize and develop people's fight-back against imperialist and capitalist attacks, we seek to develop our solidarity with oppressed but struggling people in Asia and the rest of the world. We believe that your struggle is our struggle. Build and strengthen international solidarity to resist imperialist and capitalist exploitation, plunder and war!
