 The imperialistic confrontation between Japan and China.

 Two weeks have passed since the release of "contaminated water" into the ocean began.
 China immediately announced a total embargo on Japan seafood products, protesting that what the Japan was doing was not based on "scientific evidence," and protest calls from China flooded into Japan.
 On the other hand, in Japan, "unscientific frenzy" and "anti-China" campaigns are growing, saying that "if you are cutting an unreasonable 'anti-Japan card' with no scientific basis, will take countermeasures."
 The confrontation over the ocean release reflects the imperialist confrontation between Japan and China.

 The decline of the JCP does not stop. 
 JCP lost seats in the House of Representatives election two years ago and the House of Councilors election last year and suffered a major defeat in the unified local elections in April this year, losing 1,350 seats nationwide. 
 In the meantime, the Central Committee plenary session summed up the election, which was an excuse to justify the policy of the Shii leadership, which could be said to be so-what attitude for distracting from the causes of the JCP's growing detachment from the working masses and increasingly loss of trust.

  The total amount was 114.4 trillion yen, the same as the Cabinet decision, and was 6.8 trillion yen more than the initial budget of the previous fiscal year, setting a record high for 11 consecutive years.

  The Kishida administration approved three security documents at the end of last year.As a result, the fear of an imperialist war beginning became a reality, and the burden of increased military spending on the "people" became certain.

  The Congress of the Communist Party of China, held once every five years, began on October 16. General Secretary Xi Jinping, who is expected to take office for an “unusual” third term, issued an “activity report” with plenty of time to spare, boasting of his achievements and declaring that he would aim for “the full perfection of a socialist modernizing powerhouse”.

We condemn the forced annexation of Ukrainian four states by Russia.
--Oppose imperialism and let workers stand in solidarity internationally.

  On September 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin forced the incorporation of Ukrainian four provinces into Russia based on overwhelming “approval” in the “referendum” in the four southern provinces in the eastern part of Ukraine occupied by military invasion.
  But that “consensus” is nothing more than a “hoax” imposed on the population under pressure by the military.At the same time as the annexation of the Ukrainian four states, 300,000 reservists were called up.
  As a result, the number of people fleeing Russia to escape military service has increased, and also the movement against the war has increased, and distrust and opposition to the Russian domestic regime are spreading.

  But Kishida did not change posture to press the "Abe state funeral" and appointed a lot of members who closed up to the former United Church of Christ (religious community) having a reactionary doctrine to cabinet ministers. Besides, Kishida is not going to quit the relations with the religious community systematically. Now the reaction characteristics of the Kishida Administration are clear.

  The Kishida administration has decided to hold a "state funeral" on September 27 for former Prime Minister Abe, who was shot and killed while making a speech in support of the Upper House election.
  However, we firmly oppose the "national funeral" because Abe's politics for almost nine years has been one of force and reaction, relying on his majority of seats in the Diet and ignoring the voices of workers and working people.

  The Liberal Democratic Party got a working majority including non-reelection members of the Diet in the Upper House election on July 10, and the group for the revision of the Constitution including the LDP occupied two-thirds of the seats.
  It means that the victory of the reactionary group. The Upper House election made clear the powerlessness of the opposition parties (the Cconstitutional Democratic Party and the Japam Communist Party)and that we could not fight against the LDP & the reactionaries without the construction of the workers class-representative party.

  After the Kishida Administration started, about a half year has passed and now it is conducting the first national election (the Upper House election).
  And the campaign pledge of the Liberal Democratic Party was announced on June 16. It's pledge pamphlet raises the "diplomacy & security" to the top and proposes "an early realization" of the constitution revision at the same time. It shows clearly that the Kishida Government prioritizes the arms buildup and the revision of the Constitution.

However, the criticism of neo-liberalism and emphasis on distribution that he spoke of during his election campaign have been toned down, and the phrase "to increase in the labor participation rate" issued by the "Headquarters for the Realization of New Capitalism" is no longer included.

  However, impudently, he emphasizes "the utilization of the Self-Defense Forces", taking advantage of the announcement of the book, "the new platform classroom" to publicize "the value of the JCP" and his remarks calls a discussion.
  We didn't get the book at the point in time because Shi-i sells the book hard, or by anothe reason before writing this article, but we will confirm reactionary characteristics of the philistine standpoint of the Japan Communist Party platform.

However, the GDP did not increase so much, and the year-to-year growth rate of GDP in the third-quarter (from July to September) was negative.

In the first place, the Abe (and Suga) government that came up with a quantitative easing measure of the different dimension came to a deadlock because of unscientific economics eight years ago and cut a rudder in a financial expansion plan. The beginning is "the infant childcare free" by "the consumption tax increase diversion". But, after the election, the waiting-list children and nursery school charges increased, and criticism occurred successively because young parens felt to be "deceived". Thus Abe was forced to leaving when many corruption cases were investigated, but Suga's new administration is also the sheer stupid government as well as Abe government.

The Abe Administration founded "the Personnel Affairs Bureau of Cabinet" (the chief of the bureau at the time was Kato , the current Chief Cabinet Secretary) and held the rights of personnel management of the bureaucratic executives single-handed. It was Suga, the Chief Cabinet Secretary at the time, that promoted it. In this way, the bureaucrats became more obedient menservants of the Abe Administration and they repeated official document forgery and document concealment, lie remarks, watching out at the Moritomo, the Kake, and the cherry viewing gatherings, as is generally known. The appointment refusal of six people of "the Science Council of Japan" is just on the extension line, too.

However, the Suga new administration, without the awarenesse of the Abe Government's failure and without showing own design toward the future, reveals the irresponsible and shameless government by declaring "the succession of the Abe politics".

-- Whereabouts of the "opposition party joint struggle" course of Shi-i

 Shi-i, the Chairman of the Japan Communist Party, strengthens a maneuver for "version up" of the opposition party joint struggle. He aimed to make the leap of the opposition party joint struggle and to increase the JCP's seats through fighting in the three times of national election by an ordinary opposition party joint struggle, but his efforts were in vain and the opposition party joint struggles piled up only a losing battle. In addition,the opposition party joint struggle in itself dismantled in the 2017 Lower House election and could not but play the failure off by a makeshift joint struggle. As a result, both the authority of Shi-i and his power seem to disappear with a spring empty dream. Shi-i now cannot but spread the fantasy of the participating opposition party government including the JCP. However, if the JCP joins the Democratic Party political power that failed in 2012, it will be something like an unvaried diet.

-- The Japan Communist Party which cries visionary "consumption recession"

 A fantasy, a dogma that the expression of the fundamental contradiction of the capitalism is not a surplus of the production, but the exploitation of workers and their poverty, therefore, the resolution is the improvement of the life and welfare of workers and poor people began at the golden days of the classical economics in the 19th century and have been inherited to the present age. Malthus, Sismondi and others had preached that the root of the contradiction of the capitalism was in "underconsumption" by the exploitation of the worker, therefore if dissolved it by redistribution of income and welfare, the capitalism had an everlasting life. And, the idea was brought back and succeeded by Keynes at the monopolistic stage of the capitalism, the late monopoistic stage after the 1930s, and is recognized officially as the theory out of question, as an ideology of the modern bourgeoisie.
Not only that, such a vulgar theory is shared and bruited by anti-government parties now, the PDP and the Yamamoto new party , the JCP of the Stalinist, and so on.

The results mean that 2 parties of the former Democratic Party = the Democratic Progressive Party could win, but the opposition party joint struggle group where the Japan Communist Party joined was defeated; This result is seriously unwell for the JCP.

But only as a party that struggled decisively with confronting the Abe administration head-on, exposing the opposition joint struggle groupe who was pretending false sympathetic of workers, we summerized with pride that our struggle was essential, right, and important decisively. We confirmed that it was necessary and indispensable to take on further struggles, and once we stopped fighting, it was even a betrayal against workers.

 The Abe administration is strengthening maneuvering to win in the Upper House Election by expressing the consumption tax increase of 2 trillion yen and its diversion for the "all the generation type social security" by the Upper House Election and promising a doll-out policy. We have to confront and break down such a vulgar and dismantling maneuvering of Abe which destroys even the root of the society, the politics and the culture in addition to the finance, the finance and the economy in Japan. The importance and the meaning of our fight and duty is becoming increasingly bigger.
[Editorial]: The Imperial Family is increasingly appearing as a political existence -- It fuses with the Abe politics improperly.

No.1350/April.21, 2019
A policy making free of charge of infants education
-- Is it sure enough a problem of the social security?

 The Abe Administration adopted "child and child care support law revision" to make preschool education, childcare free from October on 9th in the House of Representatives with the consent of the National Democratic Party and the Japan Restoration Party as well as LDP and the Komeito and sent it to the House of Councilors. If there is the agreement of 2 parties of the quasi-ruling party, as well as the LDP and the Komeito of the ruling party, it is certain that it will be adopted in the House of Councilors, and is carried out hurriedly from October. We impeach this bill as for vote‐catching dole-out rather than "policy", object to the insincere policy that there is not right other than the Upper House election guide of this summer of the Abe Administration. and impeach such a folly if they are going to divert the money of the consumption tax increase to such a policy. We require to carry out sweeping of the chronic "waiting-list child" (the lack of nursery school) which torment young worker's family (in particular, the workwomen who feel the anguish of child care) and became the social disease as a problem having top priority immediately now.

We feel an ominous foreboding for the imperial era name of "Reiwa".
-- the consillience with historical experience according too much.

 The fuss or the farce of substitute of the Emperor reachs one top by the decision and announcement of the name of an imperial era "Reiwa", and in addition, it is going to be completed by the enthronement of the new Emperor on May 1. What this dangerous fussing mean may be that the Emperor have appeared as a completely dangerous "political" existence again since 1945, as an effective and advantageous tool for the unification of the japanese citizen to the nationalism that Abe plots by coalescing and fusing the Abe government.

It is a betrayal to the internationalism of the workers.
-- The U.S.-North Korea summit meeting and the situation of JCP.

 The colloquy such as outfoxing the foxes game of the U.S.-North Korea villain leader who did not know to deceive and suppress the nation of the own country was over for failure without reaching any kind of agreement in the meantime. It is natural that the colloquy of people pursuing the own country first like mistakenly held obsession becomes only such a thing. It is too stand out the asininity and nonsense and betrayal of JCP who evaluated and applauded it by maximum words, and fanned a fantasy without check as " from U.S.-North Korea conflict to a conversation -- a turning point of the history to contribute to world peace" (the Red Flag, June 13, 2018) in June of the last year.
