Struggle for Justice: The Hoshino Art Show
Fumiaki Hoshino is the longest held political prisoner in Japan. He was a student political activist and leader in the protest struggle against the US military bases in Okinawa and Japanese imperialism. On November 14, 1971, he led a demonstration in Tokyo against permanently maintaining the US bases there with the nuclear arsenal. An Osaka education women trade unionist Noriko Nagata and a policeman were killed in the protest, and the government has sought to blame the deaths on protest leader Hoshino. He was sentenced to life imprisonment and has been in jail for 37 years, and is now filing the second application for retrial. He has also received support from trade unionists in Japan and the US. He met his wife Akiko after he was jailed and she has been fighting for his release. She will present his watercolor pictures painted in the prison and speak about their international solidarity campaign.
A video on his case and the struggle during that period edited by Manabu Minagawa will be shown during the exhibition period.
