[event.12-7.tokyo]Rights to Asylum Seekers and Immigrants! Give Us Visa, Not Provisional Release!

PRAJ to Hold a March on December 7


Dear Friends,

We, asylum seekers and immigrants, have got the status of “Provisional Release” after more than a year of detention by Japanese Immigration Bureau. It is, however, always possible for us to be detained again and again. We are still not allowed to work. Then how should we afford our life? Since we are also stricted to freely moving, we can’t see our remote friends without permission of Immigration even in emergency. Moreover, we are forced to pay extraordinarily high medical expenses because we can’t get national health insurance which every citizen in Japan has. In summary, those in the status of “Provisional Release” in Japan, supposed to currently amount to one or two thousands in total , are deprived of basic human rights. So we demand to the Immigration and the Ministry of Justice: Give us rights to live, give us Visa! Please join us.
