"Get Rid of the Rule by Few! Get Rid of the Nuke Plants!" Satoshi Kamata Urged Workers


A workers' rally aiming for abolition of nuclear power plants organized by Japan Construction and Transport Industry Workers Solidarity Union, All Japan Dock workers' Union and the National Council of the National Union of General Workers was held on November 18 at Tamachi Kotsu Building in Tokyo. Mr. Satoshi Kamata, a well-known reportage writer, addressed the rally: "We who aim for a world without nuclear power plants are now in the middle of a fierce battle with those planning to restart the reactors currently at rest. We must work hard through to the victory. Only small parts of business community, politicians, academics and mass media are making profits out of nuclear power. An overwhelming majority of the population are against it, but they are not yet well organized into a political power. The nuclear power has been promoted as a national policy and politics can change the direction. Trade unions and activists must facilitate the change by turning people's will into a political power and leading the fight to liberate ourselves from the rule by few, the class struggle to break down the monopoly. To this end, it is important to make the movement easier for everybody to participate. Stop the complacency of the conventional movement with union flags. Seek for a new style. Be friendly to ordinary people so that they too can take part in the movement. Let's progress with our best efforts in actions such as 10 million signatures," he urged. (By M)


一握りの支配やめさせ脱原発へ~鎌田慧さん、労働者集会で檄とばす

11月18日、東京・田町交通ビルで「11.18脱原発を実現する労働者集会」が、全日建・全港湾・全国一般全国協の三組合の主催で開催された。ルポライターの鎌田慧さんが講演。鎌田さんは「いま脱原発か原発再稼働かのせめぎ合いのとき。手を抜かずに勝ち抜くときだ。原発利権をむさぼっているのは一部の財界・政治家・学者・マスコミの連中。国民の圧倒的大多数は原発反対である。しかしその力が政治化できていない。原発は国策だから、政治の力で簡単に“脱原発”に変えられる。いま労組や運動側がやらなくてはいけないことは、国民の力を政治化し、一握りの支配を脱していく闘いだ。これは独占を打ち破る“階級闘争”でもある。大事なことは、だれでも参加しやすい運動をつくること。従来型の赤旗を振って自分たちだけやっている気分になる“自己満足的運動”ではなく、腰を低くして、だれでも参加しやすい運動スタイルを追求することだ。1000万人署名など、これから本気で取り組もう」と熱く訴えた。(M)
