The Military and Young Girls: Simply No Way to Co-exist

Throughout history, women have lost their fathers, lovers,husbands, sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons to wars fought by nations. It is abhorrent for women to think of their beloved men being trained within the military to kill other human beings,and it fills us with an agonizing rage to think of their inflicting sexual violence upon innocent women or young girls in other lands.

Although we have now entered the 21st century, still nations remain absorbed in the task of continually fighting such wars. Our natural environment–the very cradle that sustains our culture–is now in a state that raises our grave concern. It is certainly no time, then, for nations to be squandering priceless resources and destroying our environment in the name of waging these state wars.

We ask that you kindly take your country’s military out of Japan. In 1946,Article 9 of the Japanese constitution made it clear that no country’s military would be needed in our country. At this time, our citizens reached a consensus to do away with the odious tool of war–even if our government should one day misinterpret this intention. Indeed, Article 9 continues to remain a point of pride for our nation, and also promises to gain increased international prominence.

The time has come where barbaric cultures must be done away with. Please, do not utilize the nation state system as tool of power with which to continue to jeopardize our very human race.
