  1. Campaign on right to peace and Article 9
    The Japan Constitution confirms that all the people in the world has the right to live in peace in the preamble. This right to live in peace has common features with the UN declaration on right to peace (2016). Japan Constitution also has Article 9 that renounces use of force and prohibits maintaining of army. We promote dissemination of these provisions and thought to other countries.
  2. US military campaign
    US military bases are in Okinawa and other area in Japan. They play dangerous roles. For example, to dispatch US military to Afghanistan and Iraq war and to raise military tension in Asia, especially against China and North Korea. We promote to eliminate US base with international solidarity.
