Thousands of trade unionists from Japan, Korea, Germany and the US rallied and marched in Tokyo on November 5, 2017 to protest the drive toward imperialist war, union busting, slave labor and privatization. Delegations from Doro-Chiba, Minato-Godo (Metal and Machinery Workers’ Union in Osaka) and Doro-Sorengo, KCTU Seoul, Korean Railway Workers Union Seoul, German Berlin transit workers from GDL, Locomotive Engineers Union & ECG, Rail and Transport Union and Transport Workers Solidarity Committee participated.
An Okinawan anti-war musician Mayumi Kawaguchi performed and a play concluded with the jailing of Abe and Trump.
Speakers discussed the attack on working people and how their unions are fighting back around the world. There was also a report on the struggle to defend the people of Fukushima including the clean-up workers and the campaign to free Fumiaki Hoshino who has been imprisoned for more than 40 years in a political frame-up because of his work against the US-Japan military agreement and the US military occupation of Okinawa.
After the rally, participants march through Ginza and in front of Tokyo Station. Nationalist rightists and racists tried to attack the march and were protected by the police who allowed them to harass the march.
Despite the attacks, tens of thousands of people saw the strong protest against the growing war moves by Donald Trump and Shinzo Abe. Trump who was visiting nearby in Tokyo where the march was held was pushing for full militarization of Japan and preparation for war with the United States against North Korea and Japan.
