Japan Hakamada logo

Below is a campaign initiated by ADPAN member Amnesty International (AI) Japan with a request that you take action.


Hakamada Iwao’s birthday is coming up on March 10. AI Japan are organising a public action in Tokyo to mark this occasion, and would like to show solidarity and support from around the world.

 1) Take a Photo

Please take a photo with you holding a message of support in your left hand and showing a fighting pose. Make a tight fist and look to your right (like the logo posted above and the photo below). We have prepared a blank card that you can use to write your message (available via this link hakamada_B4). Please be sure to write your message with big letters so that we can read it.

Address to send the photos: amnestyinternationaljapan@gmail.com

3) Share your photo on Twitter

You can also use Twitter to express your solidarity with Hakamada. From 1 – 10 March, please share your photo on Twitter and we will collect them. Please do not forget to put a hash tag #hakamada at the end of any tweet, or we cannot find your precious photos.
