Statement from Industrial Workers of the World (Wobblies)

(Original text in English below)


日本を襲った3月11日に地震と津波によって、二万人以上の方々が亡くなり、数十万人の人々が住処を無くされました。それに加えて、日本の皆さんは原子爆 発と放射線飛散の危機に直面しています。通常そうであるように、労働者大衆こそが、これらの災害の前線に立ち、かつ事後処理に携わっています。原子力によ る大惨事を避ける為に命をかけているのも彼/彼女らです。世界産業労働組合(IWW)は、日本の全人民、そしてことにフリーター全般労組の同志たちと共に 連帯します。われわれは全ての成員に、日本の労働者を支援するために、必要な行動をおこすべきだと呼びかけています。



Over 20,000 people have died and hundreds of thousands more left homeless from the March 11th earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan. On top of that the Japanese are facing a potential nuclear disaster, and radiation leak. As is often the case, working people are on the front line of these disasters and the aftermath, many risking their lives to stave off nuclear catastrophe. The Industrial Workers of the World stand in solidarity with all of the Japanese people, and our comrades in the Freeters Union in particular. We urge our members to do whatever is needed to support our Japanese fellow workers.
