Osaka: Opposition to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics! Osaka Meeting
July 19 (Monday): Osaka: Opposition to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics! Osaka Meeting “Surveillance Society and the Olympics
July 19 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
While Shigeru Omi, chairman of the government’s Subcommittee on Countermeasures for Infectious Diseases, said at a Diet session that “normally, the Olympics would not be held,” and LDP officials and the business community continued to say that the Olympics could not be held, Prime Minister Kan said, “We will show the power of sports to the world,” and is rushing to hold the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.
On May 12, the Asahi Shimbun reported that a ministerial ordinance “allowing baggage checks on railroads to counter terrorism at the Tokyo Olympics” is scheduled to take effect on July 1.
The Law of complicity in the crime, which was forcibly adopted in 2017 over the opposition parties’ objections, was on the basis that it was necessary for the Olympics to be held.
The digital reform laws that was forcibly voted down in the current Diet session is designed to thoroughly monitor the people’ s digital information, and there are fears that driver’s licenses will be managed with ID number and linked to surveillance cameras around the city.
Now, with the Olympics as a springboard, the “surveillance society” will be thoroughly implemented.
A sign of victory over Corona !?
A safe and secure event !?
Careful explanation !?
Hope and courage to the world !?
Heil! Suga !?
