Gensuikyo,the Japan disarmament group which mainly consists of Hiroshima victims, has welcomed the first-ever draft text of the Nuclear Ban Treaty, released in the UN earlier this month. We are reproducing below the Gensuikyo statement:
In such a situation, if this trend is not arrested with promptness and unity of purpose Siachen glacier might vanish in your life time.

Japan’s youth has reinvigorated protest in Japan and inspired an entire nation to reclaim their say in the country’s course. The zest for democracy is back. Just look at these photos.

To coincide with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s speech at UN General Assembly on 9/29, the Japanese peace activists organised under the banner of OVERSEAs and also pro-pacifism U.S. citizens will protest against dilution of the pacifist constitution of Japan.
