2/14 25,000 Rally in Japan for Peace
by Peacenik
Friday Feb 14th, 2003 8:47 PM
On 2/14/03, 25,000 marched for peace in Japan, including victims of US weapons of mass destruction, the survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively, when the US committed this racist and unnecessary act as Japan was already suing for peace, to warn the Russians, who were poised to attack Japan, that the 20th Century was to be the American Century. It never was and no century every will be. We do not need an American Century; we need international peace.

Labor unions were also major participants in this peace march. Labor Net Japan has an excellent story with photos at:
