    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.

    Place: Miyashita Koen Park (Shibuya)
    Date: March 11 (Sun)
    Time: 1pm-1:30pm (march should finish by 4pm)

      …till the 2008 March in March!

      Today marchers braved wind, rain and even hail to demand equality and job security.

      We started sunny but during the assembly the sky greyed, winds picked up and a drizzle joined the mix.
      Our allies from General Union in Osaka spoke and we performed the Nova Bunny Show for the first time ever in hail. Even hail won’t stop our fight for equal rights.

      Reuters TV and Italy’s Spy TV both took footage and did interviews.
      All around a great day and congratulations to all participants.
