  • Description

    The General Council of Japanese Trade Unions which boasts of a 3,300,000-man membership staged the third wave of slowdown strike and held rallies in various parts of the country October 28 in protest against the Government amendment bill to the Police Duties Execution Law giving the police greater powers.

    In Tokyo a central rally was held at Hibiya Public Park in the heart of Tokyo and some 80,000 unionists took part in the rally braxing the rain.

    Similar rallies were also held at three other places in the city on the same day.

    At the central rally, Chairman of the Socialist Party Mosaburo Suzuki and Japan Communist Party First Secretary Sanzo Nosaka delivered encouraging speeches.

    The General Council which is a leftist labor organization, adopted at the rally a resolution to carry out the general strike November 5 in opposition to the Government amendment bill which is being heatedly discussed at the current special session of the Diet.

    After the central rally was over, the unionists staged a zigzag demonstrative march in the main streets of Tokyo, carrying placards and banners opposing the bill.
