Japanese Political Officials Learn About Peace In Berkeley
Officials from Japanese political organizations are visiting Berkeley to learn about peace politics.
They met with council member Dona Spring on Monday to discuss strategies for Japan´s fledgling anti war movement.
Kiyoshi Matsuya, who heads Japan´s Rainbow and Green organization, says that until recently there was no need for Japanese anti war organizations because of Japan´s pacifist constitution. The constitution was written by US Occupation authorities after World War Two. It bans Japan from using military force to settle international disputes.
