New movement of Japanese politics _ 2013 Japan Upper House Elections
The wish of me and many my friends is different from Japanese Government. Our hope... Peace, No war (Keep Constitution Article 9. We proud of it.), No nukes (Not only Japan. The air and the sea are only one all over the world. The pollution is for everyone.)
I think that we have possibility to do good for the world including an own country, because Japan is the country which experienced both the world war and 3.11 nuclear disaster. We want to be never repeated them. We need to become wise.
Yohei Miyake(34) run for the Upper House election. His style of campaign and speech and fashion is completely different from typical others. The biggest difference is that he works for love, not for a desire. He hopes that the world change better than he is elected. His faith is human and global. He said "This (movement) is not battle. We shouldn't fight for it. We should discuss thoroughly till we make harmony." He repeats "I'm not special, the same as you. I showed courage. Next is your turn." He wants the same for us...we work for love, not for a desire.
He was not famous and not rich, but got 176,000 votes by the election activity of very low cost. However, he was not elected. Because he didn't belong to the strong party. (The system is that it's voted both with an individual and with a party. The party, which has high popularity, can collect votes as one party easily. Since it can do the advertising to every corner and has many candidates.)
Are we minority? I think that many people hope "peace" and "sustainable world". Across a border.

1) Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.
2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.
We have the Self-Defense Forces. This contradicts it. But it's only on the word. They act in the domestic and foreign rescue operations. However, they don't need to fight of killing persons.
