A few days ago, a suspect was arrested in Japan who threatened to go to the exhibition with gasoline unless he stopped the exhibition of the Girl of Peace Prize. Despite these ongoing threats of terrorism, Japanese cultural organizations are calling for a restart of the exhibition of girl statues.

A male suspect in his 50s who was threatening terrorism at the Aichi Triennale was arrested by the police.

The 59-year-old Hotta Shuji sent a fax to the organizers on Tuesday that he will riot with gasoline unless he immediately stops exhibiting the Peace Girl Award.

The organizer discontinued the Girl Awards in three days, saying the faxes and threatening phones threatened safety.

Yesterday (7th) another man was arrested by police after spraying gasoline at an exhibition hall.

Japanese cultural and civic groups contend that the cessation of the exhibition because of terrorist threats and political pressure is a fundamental threat to freedom of expression.

In addition to the participating artists and the Japan Playwrights' Association, the Federation of Japanese Art Critics also called for the resumption of the Girl Award.

[Iwasaki / Girls Award Exhibition Executive Committee: It's about the Art Festival. Why do you intervene in economic or political issues between Korea and Japan?]

But Japan's Ministry of Education and Science has once again indirectly pressured the organizers to investigate how the state budget was funded at the exhibition.

[Shibayama / Japan Ministry of Education and Science Award: We are only going to reconfirm if the application and confirmation of the proper grant has been made.

The voices of writers and civic groups to respect the basic values โ€‹โ€‹of human rights and art have not yet crossed the enormous wall of the Japanese government and the right wing.
