TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--1,000 young supporters of the Happiness Realization Party (HRP) will hold a demonstration at Shibuya, Tokyo on February 28th to call upon the Japanese government to strengthen national security and international influence to protect freedom and peace in Japan and Asia.
North Korea carried out a fourth nuclear test in January and satellite launch experiment, de facto ballistic missiles test, in February, which seriously undermined the security environment for Japan. At the same time, China has built the military base in the Spratly islands despite criticism from neighboring countries. The security of the sea lanes, through which more than 80% of Japan’s oil is transported, could be put at risk if a regional conflict were to happen.
At present, North Korea is out of control and China is undermining the
security environment of the Asia-Pacific region. However, the Japanese
government is not taking effective action to protect Japan and Asia from
imperialistic military action.
Inspired by the Sunflower Student Movement in Taiwan and Umbrella Revolution in Hong Kong, the young supporters of HRP, who believe Japan has a duty to stand up for the cause of freedom, will gather to hold a demonstration to call upon the Japanese government to strengthen national security and international influence to protect the freedom and peace in Japan and Asia.
1) Date and Time: February 28th 3pm
2) Starting Point: Yoyogi Park in front of Shibuya ward office
