What is going on in ready-mixed concrete industry in Kansai?
There has been something strange in the Kansai area since January this year. Those who are notorious for hate speech demonstrate on two large vehicles with large volume not only in Osaka City but also in the neighboring Wakayama and Kyoto Prefectures. Surprising is that some executive members of the Osaka Wide-Area Ready-Mixed Concrete Industry Cooperative join the demonstration by the neo-Nazis. They target the Kansai Destrict Ready-Mixed Concrete Local of the Zennikken Solidarity Union. On January 22, 2018, a group of the neo-Nazis and the executive members tried to rush into the building of the Zennikken Solidarity Union, resulting in injuries of some trade union members. What is happening there? Why does the industry cooperative, whose principle is mutual support to confront despotism of big businesses, collaborate with those who repeat antisocial behaviors? We produced a video to probe into the reality and problems. (Zennikken Solidarity Union)
