People from all walks of life in Japan warn that "revision of the constitution" may push Japan into the abyss

  From 1931 to 1945, the Chinese military and civilians stubbornly resisted the Japanese militarism aggression, and finally won the War of Resistance Against Japan.

After its defeat, Japan enacted a pacifist constitution, disallowed the army, and renounced the "right to wage war."

  However, in recent years, Japan's political arena has become more conservative and right-wing.

After Fumio Kishida came to power, he regarded the revision of the constitution as one of the most important issues for the government.

Many politicians are clamoring to change the post-war arrangement and get rid of the status of "defeated country" completely.

After the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, Japan frequently launched diplomatic activities, trying to take the opportunity to "relax itself" and get rid of the shackles of the pacifist constitution.

  In this regard, people from all walks of life in Japan pointed out in an exclusive interview with a reporter from China Central Radio and Television that Japan's "constitutional revision" is very dangerous and may push Japan into the abyss and repeat the mistakes of the war.

  Japan's "Inheritance and Development Murayama Talk" Chairman Fujita Takajing: Those who advocate the revision of the Constitution are trying to undermine Article 9 of the Peaceful Constitution.

This move will arouse concern and vigilance against Japan in neighboring countries. It is a foolish act that runs counter to the establishment of peace in Asia. I strongly oppose it.

  Japanese political commentator Morita Minoru: Many Japanese politicians now advocate the expansion of armaments and want Japan to return to the path of militarism.

This is an extremely wrong and dangerous act, and I fear it will push Japan into the abyss.

  Yoshiko Kira, a member of the Japanese Senate: A series of movements now advocating amending the constitution will exacerbate tensions in East Asia. The expansion of armaments will only intensify the confrontation, which is likely to lead to war in the end.

  Analysts pointed out that at present, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine is still fermenting, and the international situation is facing many instability and uncertainties.

Japan, on the other hand, followed the United States, stepped up the consolidation of the Japan-US alliance, promised to increase the defense budget, actively participated in the "quadruple mechanism", the G7 and other "small circles", and sought cooperation with NATO.

Its purpose is to break the constraints of the "Peace Constitution" after World War II, seek the status of a political and military power, and make Japan a so-called "war-capable country".

People of insight in Japan believe that these actions of the Kishida government may undermine the mutual trust established between Japan and Asian countries and increase the risk of military conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.

  Yoshiko Kira, a member of the Japanese Senate: Don't use the excuse of how to deal with the attack to incite the expansion of the arms race.

Give up the idea and avoid conflict through diplomacy.

Under the current international situation, the path of peaceful diplomacy should be developed even more.

  Japanese lawyer Masami Uchida: Japan formulated a pacifist constitution after the war, and issued various political documents such as the Sino-Japanese Joint Statement, expressing its reflection on the war of aggression.

If Article 9 of the pacifist constitution is amended, it will overturn the various efforts made by predecessors to achieve reconciliation between Japan and Asian countries for 77 years after the war.

  Yan Valhou, Honorary Professor of Yamaguchi University in Japan: I am deeply concerned about the move to amend the constitution. The relationship of mutual trust and mutual respect we have worked hard to build with the Asian people will be destroyed.

There will be no real peace without upholding the pacifist constitution and deepening friendly relations with its Asian neighbors, including China.
