Let’s make a change from Tokyo to stop Prime Minister Abe’s arrogance: Kickoff meeting for Utsunomiya

UTSUNOMIYA Kenji (photo) energetically appealed, “The Nago mayoral election on January 19, 2014 and the Tokyo gubernatorial one on February 4 are crucial for Japan’s future. It’s time for us to make a change from Tokyo to stop Prime Minister Abe’s arrogance. We are never powerless”. The “Kickoff meeting for Utsunomiya for a new Tokyo” was held at the Toshima Kokaido Hall in central Tokyo on January 8, 2014 and filled with 1,200 participants. MAGOSAKI Ukeru, a critic, enthusiastically said, “Japan is really on the brink of war. The people are facing many negative and dangerous things, such as the restarts of nuclear power plants, TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), Secrecy Protection Act, change of the Worker Dispatching Act for the worse, and increase in the consumption tax. In particular, nuclear power plants are about to be restarted. Only Utsunomiya can send strong messages against such moves. I would like to totally support him”. (M)
