Osaka Prefectural Assembly Passes ‘Kimigayo’ Ordinance


Osaka Prefectural Assembly passed the “Kimigayo” ordinance, and it was enacted on June 3. The ordinance is to demand teachers of prefectural schools stand for the national anthem, known as Kimigayo. A citizens’ group released a protest letter to the local government, which said the reprimanding teachers who refuse to stand for and sing the national anthem, as well as threatening them by it, obstruct children’s right to know a diverse sense of value in society and people’s right to form their own personality. Treating teachers who refuse to stand up for the national anthem and reprimanding them would also hurt children. They would end up not making their own decisions and learning not to protest authorities without respecting their own ideas. The group announced that it would expand the protest action.

6月3日午後7時32分、大阪府議会本会議において「君が代」条例が可決・成立した。「日の丸・君が代」強制反対ホットライン大阪は、この暴挙に対してただちに抗議声明を発表した。声明では「教職員に対して罰則と恫喝によって起立・斉唱を強制することは、子どもたちが社会には多様な価値観が存在することを知り、自己の人格を自由に形成すること阻害します。また、不起立の教職員に対する“犯罪者”的な扱いと“処罰”は、子どもたちの心を傷つけ、事がらが正しいのか誤っているのかの判断を行わず、意に反してでも権力者に逆らわない子どもたちを育てることにつながります」と強調し、この違憲条例に対する反対運動を広げていくことを明らかにした。 *写真=5/26の緊急反対集会

A former British colonial outpost in South America, its tropical location has done little for its tourist industry. It lacks the turquoise waters and white sandy beaches of nearby Caribbean islands.

In 1667, the Dutch decided to keep the nascent plantation colony of Suriname conquered from the English, resulting from the Treaty of Breda
