‘I could not let go of a cultish, rightist school’~City council member reveals dubious Moritomo ordeal

“I am stunned to see how the case has attracted so much attention,” said KIMURA Makoto, a Toyonaka city council member (see photo) who triggered the Moritomo Gakuen School ordeal, during the protest at the Diet on March 30. The protest calls for pursuit of the Moritomo case and resignation of Abe administration every Thursday. With about 500 people in the crowd, lawmakers from Minshin, the Communist and Social Democratic parties demanded that the parliament pursuit the truth behind the suspicious dealings behind the Moritomo school. “I knew a gross teaching of Tsukamoto kindergarten, where they made students recite the Imperial Rescript on Education,” Kimura said. “It came out of my genuine wish to ‘crush’ the plan to build the elementary school in our city of Toyonaka. I could not let go of the plan to build a cultish, right-wing school in my city. I don’t agree with ‘sontaku’ to make a decision through assuming best of what someone higher up wishes. If there was a political pressure gestured, that is not considered, ‘sontaku.’ We need to examine where the pressure came from and must speak louder in demand for Abe’s resignation.” (By M)
