【Emergency Rally】
The 2024 Amendment of Immigration Control Act that prevents "coexistence" -  “Ikusei-shuro (育成就労)" system inheriting slavery, and revocation of Permanent Residence Status

#Don’t Revoke the Permanent Residence Status
#No to the 2024 amendments of the Immigration Control Act!

Japan is already a "migrant society.

However, the proposed "amendments" to the Immigration Control Act, the Immigration Control Special Provisions Act, and the Technical Intern Training Act, approved by the Cabinet on March 15, 2024, run counter to the government's goal of "the realization of society of harmonious coexistence”. We believe that these "amendments" will not only continue the deception of the past, but will also lead to new forms of exclusion and discrimination.

What we are calling for is a migration policy that is appropriate to the reality of an "migrant society”. We need a shift to a policy that accepts people as human beings, respects their dignity and rights, and allows them to live in safety and stability. We hold an emergency rally as below to call for a "just migrant society," a society where people respect each other's differences. Please join us.
