We Asia-Wide Campaign -Japan express our heartfelt solidarity to the people who join the protest action regarding the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to the Philippines on January 12-13, 2017.
As you point out, Abe’s visit to the Philippines on this time is not a mere social visit. It has imperialist ambition as its backdrop.

“The visit of the Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the Philippines on Jan 12 and 13 is not a mere social visit to return the state visit of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte who went to Japan last year, nor is it merely to discuss maritime security and economic loans for a railway in the Philippines,” umbrella group Bayan said at a rally held in front of the Embassy of Japan. The group cautioned Duterte on the Japanese militarist agenda aimed at flexing that country’s armed might in the region.

UNSC Resolution underscores Israel's isolation & strong support for recognition of Palestinian rights
By Prof. Jose Maria Sison,
Chairperson, ILPS International Coordinating Committee
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution declaring illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands underscores the extreme unlawful conduct and political isolation of the Zionist state of Israel in the eyes of the international community. Even the United States, Israel’s most rabid supporter, would not dare cast its veto for fear of losing all credibility. The resolution likewise shows the strong international support for the recognition of Palestinian rights.
