At least Japan has elected reps that still have the courage and integrity to take a stand against what they perceive is happening in Japan as we speak. Don't get me wrong, western nations are following the exact same path, now how is that possible without coordination? Just look at the USA, with our FEMA camps and the same banker associated internationalists acting as gestapo and storm troopers
Japan Has Fallen Back Into Fascism After 68 Years
by Washington's blog, Info wars dot com
Japanese Senator Shouts “This is The Way the Reign of Terror Begins” … Then Others Physically Restrain Him
December 6, 2013
The Empire of Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945.
68 years later, Japan has fallen back into fascism.
Despite large protests outside of the Japanese Senate.
Meanwhile, protests comprising more than 7,000 demonstrators continued around the Diet building, mobilized by civic groups, unions and concerned individuals, following similar scenes Wednesday that saw more than 6,000 anti-secrecy law opponents march around the Diet building hand-in-hand.And the impassioned pleas of Japanese Senators (via Xinhua):
So outraged was opposition lawmaker Hirokazu Shiba in the committee meeting Thursday, that he rose from his seat and shouted “This is the way the reign of terror begins!” His fervor led to his fellow lawmakers having to physically restrain Shiba, as tensions in the meeting reached fever pitch.The secrecy bill is headed for passage Friday. Indeed, the bill has likely already passed by the time you read this.
Another Japanese Senator said:
“The path that Japan is taking is the recreation of a fascist state. I strongly believe that this secrecy bill represents a planned coup d’état by a group of politicians and bureaucrats,” he warned.Just like the U.S. Japan is responding to crises of its own making by banning journalism.
The Guardian notes:
Whistleblowers and journalists in Japan could soon find themselves facing long spells in prison for divulging and reporting state secrets, possibly including sensitive information about the Fukushima nuclear disaster ….
“It is a threat to democracy,” said Keiichi Kiriyama, an editorial writer for the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper ….
“It can be used to hide whatever the government wishes to keep away from public scrutiny,” said Mizuho Fukushima, an opposition MP. ….Indeed, the number 2 government official said last week that protest equals terrorism.
[The] justice minister, Sadakazu Tanigaki, refused to rule out police raids of newspapers suspected of breaking the law.
Foreign Policy notes that the U.S. is largely behind the bill:
Washington, for its part, has long supported stronger secrecy laws in Japan ….
The proposed measure is part of a larger effort by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to move away from Japan’s pacifist past and establish a stronger military posture that is congenial to, or in line with U.S. preferences, according to Samuels.
Among other initiatives, Abe plans to create Japan’s version of the U.S. National Security Council, the coordinating body of American foreign policy, and is pushing to reinterpret Japan’s constitution to expand its military’s limited self-defense role — giving it the authority to aid the United States and other allies, if they’re attacked.
The state secrets bill similarly seems to resemble U.S. policy.Indeed, the U.S. controls a good deal of Japanese policy.
