Show Your Opposition to Abe’s Politics on July 18

Dozens of famous intellectuals and cultural figures in Japan, including WAN’s director Chizuno Ueko, are asking people to demonstrate opposition to the current prime minister Abe’s politics by way of holding a sign with the slogan “We Refuse Abe’s Politics.” (アベ政治を許さない)

People are encouraged to download the file from http://wan.or.jp/emergency/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/sho_f.pdf. On it, the slogan is written in powerful and impressive Japanese calligraphy by one of the movement promoters Tota Kaneko, a famous haiku poet. Print it out on a A3 size piece of paper, and hold it at 1 p.m. on July 18 Japan time.
