Denounce the memorial service of supporting aggressive war!
Overthrow constitutional revisionist and an advocate of nuclear armament Fukuda!
We, National Hibakusha Youth League(NHYL), declare!
On last August 6, Anti-war A-bomb Survivors’ Association (AASA), NHYL, workers and students drove Prime Minister Abe out from Hiroshima with his fear by the militant morning march calling “Denounce the memorial service of supporting aggressive war! Down with Abe administration”. After that, Abe administration collapsed.
On 8・6 morning, 63rd anniversary of A-bomb, we carry out more militant march than that of last summer by the arm of the class unity gained in “Crush G8 Summit 6・29 Grand March in Shibuya”.
Penetrating the wall of a riot police, closing on Peace Park at 8:15 we crush the memorial service of supporting aggressive war that makes A-bomb survivors hero of war and then suppressed.
We, A-bomb survivors, second and third generations, will corner then overthrow the worst constitutional revisionist and an advocate of nuclear armament Fukuda who is going to enter Peace Park.
NHYL heartily call for!
A-bomb survivors, second-third generations, workers and students of university and high school of all over the world!
Get together and march with NHYL and AASA calling “Denounce the memorial service supporting aggressive war! Overthrow Fukuda!”.
“Memorial service” is to make A-bomb survivors war hero and suppress toward nuclear armament.
Under the press code on Atomic bomb, “Peace Festival” was held forcibly by the General Head Quarter of occupied forces (GHQ) on August 6 1947. Japan Communist Party ignored the anger of A-bomb survivors because it considered the occupied forces as a liberation army. Nevertheless, A-bomb survivors never gave in. Could A-bomb survivors being killed by delayed radiation sickness accept “Peace Festival” which celebrate Atomic bombing with songs and dancing?
At workers’ “Peace Protection Conference” in Hiroshima on October 2 1949, they resolved “Elimination of Atomic bomb”. In 1950, workers and people accused the US’s plan of Atomic bombing on China and eventually prevented the use of Atomic bomb. GHQ could not hold “Peace Festival” because they feared the anger of A-bomb survivors.
On March 1 1954, Bikini incident took place. At the same time, Japan’s government started own nuclear armament to present “Budget for construction of nuclear reactor” to the Diet using “Nuclear for Peace” as excuse. For the promoters of nuclear armament, the existence of A-bomb survivors who are against war and nuclear was obstacle. They had to remove anger from A-bomb survivors. They declared there is no effect of radiation remained in A-bomb survivors, or A-bomb survivor is the sacrifice of irreplaceable lives for peace. Then, they accelerated suppression on A-bomb survivors. Bikini incident, however, reminded the Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Anti-nuke movement started after the incident.
Anti-nuke movement, however, dividing A-bomb survivors from workers class as an object of sympathy and relief, suppressed their own emancipation. At the anti-nuke conference, A-bomb survivors were forced to speak their cruel experiences, and in the end to show cheloid on their skin caused by heat ray of Atomic bomb. Anti-nuke movement only exploited A-bomb survivors as an exhibition. NHYL and AASA were set up to change such situation.
On August 6 1971, NHYL rose to struggle, at front of workers and students, to stop the attendance of Prime minister Sato, who was invading Vietnam with US, to “Memorial service”.
The struggle, called “Hiroshima Riot”, continued from morning to night, we crushed “Memorial service” completely.
Since then, the 8・6 Morning March has been revolutionary anti-war and anti-nuke struggle for the emancipation both A-bomb survivors and working class.
With the unity of workers of the world, down with imperialism and the proletarian world revolution!
Uniting with Arleen Inoue struggling with the military recruiter in US, Iraqi long shore workers, ILWU, Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and A-bomb survivors of all over the world, we just start internationally struggle against imperialist’s war and nuclear. We are just on the way to the proletarian world revolution.
Get together and march along with NHYL and AASA calling “Crush the memorial service supporting aggressive war! Kick out the worst constitutional revisionist, advocate of nuclear armament Fukuda! from Hiroshima”.Breach the line to the November 10 thousand workers rally promoted by Doro-Chiba and the proletarian world revolution through the 8・6 Morning March!
