Japanese Regime Accused of Discrimination against Korean Schools

Koreans in Japan and Japanese citizens continue their struggle in protest against the Japanese authorities' discrimination and violation of human rights against Korean schools.

In February, the UN special rapporteurs on human rights in a joint letter warned the Japanese authorities not to engage in discriminative acts of excluding the students of Korean University from the subsidy program for students in connection with the widespread COVID-19, and urged them to correct their deeds.

However, the then Japanese authorities justified their deeds, saying that the exclusion of students of Korean University "is not discrimination" and "the subsidy program already expired".

Still now, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and Foreign Ministry have Koreans in Japan excluded from the subsidy program, claiming that "there is no discrimination and the joint letter of the UN special rapporteurs on human rights is a view of individuals, not the one of the UN".

Japan makes the judiciary authorities justify the discrimination.

Students and teaching staff of Korean University and members of the national network, a solidarity organization supporting Korean schools that embraces Japanese civic organizations, held a meeting at the hall of members of the House of Councillors in Tokyo on September 7 to urge the Japanese authorities to correct their unreasonable discriminative system.

Read out at the press conference held after the meeting was a letter of request to the minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and foreign minister of Japan in demand of materializing the gist of the joint letter of the UN special rapporteurs on human rights and ensuring the impartiality in applying the subsidy program.

A petition to the UN special rapporteurs on human rights was also read out there.
