Workshop "Article 9 of the Japanese Peace Constitution" 

Do, 7. Nov. 2013, 14.15-15.45
National Council of Churches in Japan

Descpriction: Japan’s 1947 „Peace Constitution“ is so called because it contains Article 9, which states: The Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation” (Clause 1) and “Land, sea and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained” (Clause 2). Through lectures, testimonies, prayer, dialogue and faith based declarations, the Asia Interreligious Conference on Article 9 has sought to protect the letter and promote the spirit of Article 9 against domestic and international pressures toward remilitarization of Japan. This workshop will share the results of the work in this area.
