Global Celebration of Love and Peace,

International Woman's Day o­n March 8th, 2011

 

Lets remember the struggle for Womans Rights in the freedom and equality in governance, and celebrate Womans Day with Love and Peace!

It started that American working women demonstrated for woman suffrage in NY o­n 8th March 1904, and German Socialist, Clara Zetkin advocated putting the Memorial Day for Womans freedom and equality at the International Conference of Socialists in Copenhagen o­n 19th of March, 1910. The following year, over o­ne million European people were observed for Womans Day, and Peace Rally was held in 1913 facing World War I.Its worthy note that the demonstrations of Russian women o­n the International Women's Day proved their powerful voice, including many labors and soldiers, towards the Russian Revolution of 1917.

In Japan, the first Womans suffrage is observed o­n September, 1880, and I like to specially note the favor of the earnest Womans liberalist, Raityo Hiratsuka and the Tanka poet, Akiko Yosano who founded and had published magazine, the Seitou o­n 1911.The famous phrase of Raityo Hiratsuka; Woman was originally the sun! is well known with another phrase in poem of Akiko Yosano; The day for a mountain to move, has come. Thenthe poet, Akiko Yosano published a strong antiwar poem in poetry magazine the Myoujou, Ah, my brother, I tear for you, Never you be died, Did our parents hand you a knife and teach you to kill human?...The emperor doesnt carry himself to the fire field.,in the begging of the Russo-Japanese War, 1904. She boldly wrote many poems/tankas, essay, criticism, and she encouraged women towards freedom.Even such her in favor for love and peace, it must be remarked that she has written poem to encourage soldiers in the World War II.Now her monument is built in China by Japan-China friendship, and we learn all the war bring us painful life and days. She was a woman who lived in passion.When I saw her in the library of my high school, her photograph with eleven children pointed out me.Her house that stones were thrown to protest against her antiwar poem was near the high school, and the town of Sakai had initiative of freedom as well as missionary Francisco Zavier stayed and she also travelled European countries early in the time of modernism.She wrote about 50,000 tankas and translated the Genji story of the first love story in the world, from old Japanese language through her energetic life, which are loved even in now.

The opining of industrialism and European civilization brought us a new style of Woman and built up sense of entitlement in the environment of hard work to develop the industry.I like to hereby introduce the opposite opinions between Raityo and Akiko o­n the issue of protecting motherhood.

A.Advocated by Raityo Hiratsuka, The protection of Motherhood;

The state should protect the motherhood and the woman in the period of pregnancy, birth and childcare.

B.Rejected by Akiko Yosano, Woman shouldnt depend o­n neither Man nor State.

The protection of Motherhood by State subordinates to the state.

 

The opposition looks in the natural subject o­n Woman.Human has two sexes to

relay a life to next generation and all the struggle of Woman are to live better. We appreciate to the history.Today, Japanese women celebrate the International Womans Day and have talk relay in House of Councilors 2011. If Raityo Hiratsuka, Akiko Yosano were alive, how they feel and think of it?

 

The industrialism of 19th century had the paradox of liberalism and socialism in the structure, while there was a flower of modernism in literature, culture, and social conscious, during the militarization stepping o­n.After the World War II, Japan was rebuilt in peace constitution with article 9th which declared Everlasting Peace, and o­n 8th March 1923, socialism feminist organization held the meeting for Womans Day.In 1960s, feminism flamed reforming for freedom and equality, and rapidly spread raising the conscious of human rights among the industrialism countries.The USSR had the International Women's Day as a non-working day to admire the great contribution of the Soviet women forthe revolution, 1965.

The UN provided the International Womans Day o­n 8th March since the International Womans Year of 1975, and the secretary-general of the UN has called for signatories to adjust their social environment in which the woman has enough service and equality.On the 8th March 2000, High Commissioner of the UN, Mary Robinson who became the first woman as the president of Ireland, issued the proclamation for 21 century; The International Womans Day is to celebrate the way obtained for womans rights, and to bring us thinking of many women victims yet extending. Surely there are numerous women who cant obtain the human rights in the world and numerous suffering children who cant live enough and who cant receive necessary education in the poverty. Our planet is facing the environment crisis in the industrialism civilization.As a human living in this beautiful planet of the creation of life, we must learn how better life is not for women but also man, children, and old people.

 

Essentially, Man and Woman are in Equality since God created, and the Motherhood which gives free-love, without any expectation, is respected in the world and has creative role in society because all human are born from mother, like called Mother earth, Mother land, Mother languageInternational Women's Day started as the International Working Womens Day, and the flower gift of mimosa in Russia, Italy, and European countries, would be appearance of the admiration to Woman and the motherhood.Love is the source of all to create peace, and the Motherhood is admired as well as nature has the Motherhood. I wish Love and Peace bring us towards Global Peace!

Dear Monsieur Guy Crequie and Takis Ioannides, and President Leo Semashko

 

You see my poem, "The Sun" in the early of 21 century. Now I'm glad to

look creating the wonderful epics in GHA.

 

The Sun

 

'Already Celestial Epic has lost the harmony

 

Man kind is in the great distress'

 

The Sun's voice shuts me out

 

Yet high noon sun remains over me

 

Grief is in a seed of wheat

 

The sun is too fiery to bear wheat

 

The white doves rise up into the sky

 

Tracing the light around the sun

 

Though it's a fantasy of mine

 

Doves keep flying

 

Till the end

 

 

I send you my poems which I wrote today. Thank you for your poems!!!

With Love, Kae Morii

 

No More Hibakusha from Hiroshima and Nagasaki

 

* hibakusha is the A-bombed

victim

 

What happened o­n 6th August 1945?

 

640meter above the earth

 

A-bomb Little Boy was run into Hiroshima town

 

Awful pillar of fire flashed up

 

Burst citizens to annihilation

 

Outcry and lost bodies in blast furnace 6000 ℃

 

Eyeballs hanging from eyelids

 

People asked for a water dragging their burned skins

 

People wandered around the earth pollution penetrated the lethal ash and the

black rain

 

The river of Hiroshima is flowing with the humans sorrow

 

Even now more than 60 years later

 

Cancer is increasing with the strange chromosome invading in the bone marrow

 

Who can say it to the victims that A-bomb was run to cease the war?

 

A Moment of Silence

 

―against the second drop o­n 9th August 1945

 

Why did it need?

 

The first A-bomb was great lethal beyond their expectation

 

With o­ne push o­n the bottom

 

To cease the War

 

Three days after they knew the hell in Hiroshima

 

The second A-bomb "Fat Man" was run into Urakami Cathedral

 

A moment ripped the human reason

 

Nagasaki town was gone up with the flash and

 

Many Christians groaned up against the human original sin

 

Oh, miserable! The burned face of the blessed Mary

 

The radiation scare engraved in her heart

 

The Prayer Bell broken in a moment of silence

 

With the thin breath of burned people

 

With the last tear of prayers

 

―May forgive the stupid human sin!

 

Prayer in lethal ash

 

Oh, whats tragedy of human being!

 

Was it the truth A-bombed was fallen to cease the War?

 

Scientists were received the result

 

The capacity of killing is influenced by landform

 

The death in Hiroshima is more than 120,000 people

 

The death in Nagasaki is more than 75,000 people

 

Is it truth that the A-bombs were fallen to cease the War?

 

The nuclear weapon has been produced more forcing the lethal power since the

Nagasaki

 

In Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan

 

More than 450 times of nuclear tests had repeated for 40 years and

 

More than 1,200,000 people are A-bombed

 

In Polynesia

 

More than 190 times of nuclear tests have repeated

 

At the presence more than 20,000 A-bombs stay in our planet

 

More than 2000,000 people are A-bombed and suffering with cancer

 

Our planet may lie in the dust for a few minutes

 

Before the last judge

 

The dream and hope of human being, and the science
