Tuesday, April 28, 2015, 9 am to 12 noon

(On the occasion of the Abe-Obama Summit)

Outside the U.S. Capitol building (West Lawn -- Lot #1)

Outside the U.S. Capitol building (West Lawn -- Lot #1)

Japan has yet to take responsibility for its past war crimes and now Abe intends to eschew Japan's peace constitution to make Japan a regional military power.  The United States, on the other hand, relies on its alliance with Japan as the cornerstone of its "pivot to Asia" and enables Abe's militaristic ambition.  This is a dangerous threat to peace in the Asia Pacific region.  

If you are in the D.C. area, join Korean Americans to denounce Abe's militaristic ambition and demand he take responsibility for Japan's war crimes!
