~ International unity to confront the big unemployment and the war ~

The Daily Doro-Chiba No.5756
October 12, 2003

Now we are standing on a big turning point of the times. Bush, Koizumi and Blair, they force the world "war and big unemployment". And the voice of anger is roaring all over the world against them.

We are facing the times that we cannot live without fighting on. The struggle of DORO-CHIBA is resonant with this voice of anger and we are ready to have workers' rally in November as an international solidarity rally of Japan / United States / South Korea workers.

And this day falls on a general election vote day unexpectedly. The majority of the second Koizumi cabinet is super hawkish and the extreme Right. It's the cabinet to wage war and to revise the Constitution. On the other hand, the Democratic Party (which merged Ozawa's Liberal Party) also raises a manifesto insisting revision of the Constitution and thorough deregulation / privatization. A street will be swept over by a flood of "war and the Constitution revision" campaign. In fact this is the first "Election of no opposition party" after World War ‡U.

We raise a voice of anger in 11.9 rally in such a situation. Our polling place is Hibiya outdoor concert hall.
Let's block aggression war to North Korea with international solidarity through Japan / United States / South Korea.

Let's repel bankruptcy / discharge / wage cut / unstable employment / dismantling of labor law system & social security system by solidarity of all workers!
Let's make up the struggle "No completion of, No invocation of, No obedience to emergency legislation"! Let's stop the Self-Defense Force dispatch to Iraq and stop the war of aggression to North Korea!
Let's smash arrest attack to KOKURO(the National Railway Workers' Union)
members and let's win in 1047 KOKURO discharge withdrawal struggle by
solidarity of all workers!
Let's smash the police oppression to the labor movement intended to destroy the right of organization and stop the establishment of conspiracy crime by solidarity of all workers!
Let's develop solidarity and cooperative struggle of workers across the border of Japan / United States / South Korea!
Down with "war-waging, the Constitution revising" Koizumi reactionary cabinet by solidarity of all the workers!

Let's make a nationwide network of fighting labor unions!
