Shoot: Tokyo Two Action in Mexico

GP01Q26
Greenpeace activists protest in front of the Japanese embassy in Mexico City to demand an end to the political persecution of the two Greenpeace anti-whaling activists, Junichi Sato and Toru Suzuki, and an end to Japan's whaling in the Southern Ocean. The two Greenpeace activists exposed corruption in the taxpayer-funded whaling industry, but were themselves arrested in a crackdown on Greenpeace itself in Tokyo. A quarter of a million Greenpeace supporters wrote to the Prime Minister to demand their release. The arrest was denounced by Amnesty International, and fits a pattern of repression of the rights of free speech in Japan which has been condemned by the United Nations. Actions at Japanese embassies around the world are scheduled during the week.
