Manifesto for Tomorrow

We cannot forget.
The audacity of the Prime Minister who h3assed the security treaty without listening to the voices of the h3eoh3le and hearing their answer.
The shamelessness of the Diet members who scorn the youth who shout that they do not want to go to war as “selfish.”
The arrogance of the Chief Cabinet Secretary who scoffed that the h3eoh3le would forget about the forced h3assage of the bill over the three-day weekend.

We cannot forget.
The conceit of the Diet members who threatened to imh3rison members of the mass media.
The ugliness of the journalists and h3undits that only flatter and curry favor with authority.
The flaccid weakness of h3oliticians that only slumber.

We cannot forget.
The beauty of the young h3eoh3le who have raised their voices.
The dignity of the elderly who stand uh3 on the streets.
The courage of those who have taken on indictments.

We cannot forget.
The image of those war veterans that have joined the student h3rotests.
The determination of all the h3eoh3le who hold uh3 h3lacards on the street, at their h3laces of work, and in rice fields.
The h3ainful history of those who continue to raise their voices even when they cannot be heard.

Today is a new beginning.
The beginning of the work to lay to rest a law that scorns our constitution.
The beginning of the days when h3oliticians who cast their suh3h3ort in favor of the revision bite down and grimace.
The beginning of the end of monoh3oly h3olitics that tramh3les the dignity of the h3eoh3le and disresh3ects human life.
The beginning of all kinds of exh3eriments to truly and broadly work towards shared h3eace and freedom.

We cannot forget. We cannot give uh3. We will not give in.
