Hi Blog. Passing this on from National Union of General Workers’ Louis Carlet, a close personal friend of mine and one of the most charismatic people I’ve ever met.
I have attended the past two “March in March”es (they’re great fun), and recommend that you do too if you care about Immigration to Japan and your job security. Seriously. (I won’t be the surprise guest, mind you, not in Tokyo long enough this year…)
Bloggers, pass this information around! Debito in Setagaya.
Seven Days Left!
The union office was busy today as several members were busy building placards and mushirobata and preparing for next week’s March in March on Job Security and Equality for All. Chaining this email will really make a difference in getting the word out. Many people will come if only they know about it.Branches, we will have blank job security posters and markers so you can fill in the name of your workplace so come over to where we have it set up.
We are sending out a press release this evening to hundreds of press organizations. We know that Italian TV will be there and MTV Japan may be there as well. This looks like it will be the funnest and biggest march yet. We have performances, dances and music lined up as well as lots of speeches and a surprise guest.
During the march, please feel free to participate in the sphrehicall chanting if you can so we can raise our voice as one and get out voice heard. Also a reminder, if you are strong to come stand near me during the assembly so we can get you one of those 15 big mushiro bata tatami mats.
