On September 11, 2011, twelve demonstrators were unduly and violently arrested during the Shinjuku ”No Nukes” demonstration against nuclear power. Revolted by the blatantly gratuitous nature of the arrests, a number of academics and others, including Mr. Karatani Koujin, organized around this statement for the right to public assembly. Denouncing the arrests as unlawful and unconstitutional, we are also calling for donations towards legal costs for the victims (more details will be added later).
