4th Annual March in March

Jan 9, 2009

The March in March is a multinational gathering and protest march that takes place each March. It began with foreign workers calling for job security and an end to discrimination, but with the deteriorating work environment in Japan job security and equality have become the goals of not only foreigners but all who work in Japan. The government claims to have created jobs, but the ranks of working poor and unstable jobs (dispatch, part-time, temp, contract, subcontract, freelance) have increased. The young, the elderly, foreigners and women live with anxiety about their futures. Workaholic men work themselves literally to death. Inequality and disparity do not make workers happy.
