It was the last of the 11 municipalities evacuated to still have a total ban on residency over 96% of its territory until August 31, 2022, when 10% of the town was reopened for residents. Displaced residents have been living in cities like Saitama, Iwaki, and Kawamata for the past twelve years.

Guerre Israël-Hamas : pourquoi les manifestations propalestiniennes se multiplient au Japon

06 Nov 2023  |  mediapart.fr
Kôji Sugihara, a member of the collective Najat, expresses frustration over Japan's silence on the bombings in Gaza. During a rally in front of the Japanese Diet (parliament), he criticizes the Japanese government for prioritizing economic partnerships over addressing what he refers to as genocide in Gaza. Despite the modest size of their protests compared to those in Paris or London, Sugihara believes it is their duty to criticize the government's inaction and demand a ceasefire in Gaza.

Japanese Oppose State Funeral for Shinzo Abe

23 Sep 2022  |  mediapart.fr
In Tokyo, a growing number of protesters, now reaching 13,000, are demonstrating against the state funeral for former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was assassinated on July 8. Religious groups and citizens are voicing concerns that the funeral is a political strategy to strengthen the Liberal Democratic Party's power, disrespecting individual freedom and dignity. Despite scandals surrounding Abe, including the Moritomo and Sakura-kai affairs, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida deems the funeral appropriate. Critics argue the event lacks a legal framework and fear it will glorify Abe's controversial legacy, which includes attempts to revise Japan's pacifist constitution and connections with the Moon Sect. The opposition struggles to be heard, and Japan's press freedom ranking has plummeted. Activists, including women's rights advocates and Okinawa residents, resent Abe's legacy for prioritizing military alliances over local interests.

Japan Spared by the 5th Wave of Covid

20 Dec 2021  |  heidi.news
Japan is currently being spared by the fifth wave of Covid-19 that is affecting the rest of the world. For the first time since the pandemic began, Tokyo's restaurants and bars are full, and the city is experiencing a return to festivities with matsuris being cautiously held again after a two-year hiatus. Experts are trying to hypothesize why Japan is an exception, but conclusive reasons remain elusive.

The world will see our reality: Before the Olympics, the local population of Fukushima is divided

06 Mar 2020  |  lesinrocks.com
The Olympic torch relay will begin in Fukushima's J-Village, close to the damaged nuclear plant, highlighting the ongoing reconstruction efforts nine years after the disaster. Local communities remain divided, with some feeling it's too soon to celebrate. Former Tepco employee Akihiro Yoshikawa, who returned to live in the area, feels partly responsible for the disaster and is committed to the region's recovery. The innovative Futaba Mirai Gakuen school, located near the plant, faces recruitment challenges due to its proximity to the plant, despite its educational strengths. Discrimination against Fukushima's youth persists, and residents like Nobuyoshi Ito, who founded an NGO, feel like human guinea pigs due to high radioactivity levels. The Japanese government aims to use the 2020 Olympics to showcase the region's rebirth, but many locals, including students, are indifferent or skeptical about the festivities.

Japan’s stay-at-home mothers

14 Jun 2016  |  equaltimes.org
The article discusses the challenges faced by Japanese women in balancing career and family, highlighting the societal pressure to choose between the two. Despite more women attaining higher education, many leave the workforce after having children, with only a small percentage in stable full-time jobs. The government, under Shinzo Abe, has made efforts to increase women's participation in the economy, but the target of boosting women in leadership positions to 30% by 2020 remains unmet. Discrimination and harassment in the workplace persist, with the term 'matahara' (maternity harassment) gaining prominence. Initiatives to support women, such as increased childcare places and company programs to promote gender equality, have been introduced, but challenges remain, including long working hours and societal expectations. The article also mentions individuals and organizations advocating for women's rights and the government's initiatives to improve the situation.

Japan’s stay-at-home mothers

11 May 2016  |  mondediplo.com
The article discusses the challenges faced by Japanese women in balancing career and family life, highlighting the high rate of women leaving the workforce after having children due to lack of childcare, poor career prospects, or discrimination. Despite more women attending university, their participation in stable full-time jobs has decreased over the past 30 years. The government under Shinzo Abe has made efforts to address this issue, promoting greater economic roles for women and setting targets for women in leadership positions, but progress remains slow. The article includes perspectives from Tomoko Mori, a Japanese woman who has recently been promoted at her job and is considering the impact having children may have on her career.

Japanese Women Unwelcome at Work

31 Mar 2016  |  monde-diplomatique.fr
Despite the increasing number of Japanese women attaining higher education, 60% stop working after giving birth to their first child, with only 44.2% holding stable full-time jobs, a significant decline from 67.9% in 1985. Part-time employment has surged from 28.5% to 43.9% over the same period. Prime Minister Abe Shinzo's government, which has made women's employment a priority, established a council for the promotion of women's employment in March 2014 and adopted a 'Declaration of Action for a Society where Women Shine' in April 2013, aiming for 30% of leadership positions to be held by women by 2020. However, progress remains far from these targets.
