  • Description

    HARBOUR WORKERS IN SINGAPORE DECIDED THIS WEEK TO PLACE A BOYCOTT ON ALL JAPANESE SHIPS CALLING AT THE HARBOUR FROM NEXT MONDAY (SEPTEMBER 23) TO FRIDAY (SEPTEMBER 27). THIS DECISION WAS REACHED IN RESPONSE TO A CALL BY THE SINGAPORE CHINESE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AS A RETALIATION AGAINST THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT'S FAILURE TO SETTLE THE "BLOOD DEBT."
    THE HARBOUR BOARD HAS TOLD SHIPPING AGENTS THAT NO JAPANESE SHIPS WOULD BE ALLOWED INTO THE WHARF AREA NEXT WEEK. THEY HAVE ALSO ANNOUNCED THAT THE NINE JAPANESE SHIPS IN PORT HAVE TO LEAVE BEFORE MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (SUNDAY). MORE THAN 200 JAPANESE SHIPS CALL AT THE PORT EVERY MONTH.

    EARLIER THIS YEAR, A MASS RALLY ATTENDED BY 100,000 PEOPLE CALLED ON THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT FOR A REASONABLE SETTLEMENT FOR WAR TIME ATROCITIES.
