Arrested for throwing a shoe to protest the state secrets law ~Meeting calls for the immediate release of A

A meeting was held on December 26 near the Diet, calling for the immediate release of  A, who was arrested and has been detained for throwing a shoe in protest against the state secrets law. The day before his detention was to end, the emergency meeting was held to prevent his indictment. It also called for the abolishment of the state secrets protection law. UKAI Satoshi, a professor at Hitotsubashi University, and Lawyer ASANO Fumio talked at the meeting about the problems with the arrest. Meanwhile, Lawyers KAIDO Yuichi and KAMBARA Hajime, and KIMURA Yui from the shareholders class action lawsuit against TEPCO expressed their opinions on the problems with the deliberations and voting of the bill, as well as LDP Secretary General  ISHIBA Shigeru's remark. However, as  A was indicted for forcible obstruction of business on Dec. 27, the protest and struggles to support him continue. (By SHIRAISHI Takashi)
