Osaka, Japan: Yesterday the Osaka Nishinari labor and welfare center was evicted. The center was occupied on March 31.
Note: Enough 14 is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
Forced eviction was occured at the Osaka Nishinari labor and welfare center with no notice. Osaka is also undergoing a redevelopment at the World Expo, just as Tokyo is in the Olympics. The Center is a symbol of the town.
The center was scheduled to close on March 31. Day labors, homeless ppl and activists opposed to it and continued to occupy. Today, the government officer made a sudden appearance, closing the shutters and driving people out. People’s luggage and valuable remain inside of the center.
Although the shutter has been closed, people are still protesting. There is no due process of law nor even notice in this forced eviction.
If you can rush from now (Yesterday, April 24, Enough 14), please come by! ! (the center is in front of shin-imamiya sta.)
