This past November 2007, Los Angeles UTLA school teachers visited Japan and
met with hundreds of Japanese teachers who are fighting against the
militarization in the schools and against repression of teachers who refuse
to sing and stand for the Kimigayo (emperor's nationalistic song). Many of
these teachers will be fired this year unless they receive international
support from around the world.

They also connected the struggle against the militarization of the schools
in Japan with the fight in the United States to stop the "poverty draft", the targeted recruiting of poor
Latino, Native, Asian and Black students to fight in US wars in the Middle East.
Arlene and Gregory will report on their trip and their work to build a
movement in the schools against militarization and war.
