Letter of Protest against the Abe Cabinet’s Move Towards Militarization with the U.S.

Since the start of the second Abe Cabinet in July 2013,
a number of military and security related laws are eagerly and urgently
intended to be passed.
The YWCA of Japan strongly protest against this move because we know
militarism only creates conflict but does not make peace.
