11 Reasons for demonstrating in front of Fuji Main office

Seems that too much Korean drama as been reported by many media before is not the only reason on why the demonstration against Fuji TV happen. From these youtube clips we can hear the other actual reasons for the act.

Written by Username8098@youtube:

Fuji Television Network is one of the TV stations in Japan. We criticize Fuji TV Network.
The broadcasting station of the own country is partial to only a certain one country. In addition, they diminish an athlete and the national interest of the own country. We criticize such inclination broadcasting. Because Fuji TV broadcasted only Korean contents, it was a fact that some people criticized Korean contents. However, the people of the Fuji TV protection call it racial discrimination. We Japanese do not perform criticism of others without a reason. We avoid racial discrimination most.
I write some reasons why we criticize Fuji TV Network. Because there are too many reasons to write here, so I write several reasons.
Fuji Television Network doesn't broadcast following problems. Moreover, they are causing following scandals recently.

① "Soshiki" contributed 62,500,000 yen in total to the political body derived from "the citizen's party" indirectly. We knew this scandal on July 1st. However, Fuji has never broadcasted. This problem is like following; Barack Obama donated 781,250 dollars ( now, a dollar≒80 yen ) to Usāma bin Lādin's relatives. Fuji doesn't broadcast this scandal, but they broadcast Korean contents 40 hours per a week.
※"Soshikai": A fund management group. Kan Naoto, prime minister of Japan, and Yukio Hatoyama, ex-Prime Minister, belong to this.
※" A citizen's party": The relative of the suspect who abducted a Japanese belongs to this.
※Abduction issue:By North Korea, several Japanese were abducted in 1970~1980. The Japanese Government announces that the number of abductees amounts to 17 now. In September, 2002, North Korea accepted Japanese abduction, and five victims went back to their own country in October of the year. But, about other victims, there is not yet the convincible explanation from North Korea.

②Fuji betrayed volunteers. : Tohoku region in Japan was hit by Tsunami. For the revival, some people resolved to work volunteer. Fuji Television Network used such people to set a stage to use by a TV program. Fuji didn't inform them beforehand. Fuji TV Network exploited their volunteer spirits

③Tokai TV Network is one of group Fuji Television Network Holdings. The TV Network broadcast telop "rice which is polluted by cesium". They apologized "We are sorry. The telop was for rehearsals." Before the problem is found out, they said "We support the stricken area". We are convinced that Tokai TV Network laugh at the disaster area, in the place where our eyes do not arrive.

④We saw reporters' imprudent attitude many times in a short time. For examples, Mr.Edano, Chief Cabinet Secretary, held a press conference about the situation of the nuclear power stations which have been stricken by Tsunami many times, immediately after earthquake. In the press conference, a reporter said "Again? I laugh." Moreover, recently, a female TV announcer laughed in the vigil over a pro-sports player's body. We doubt their humanity is normality.

⑤TV stars who criticized Fuji or the Korean boom was drawn off work. Now, Japan is under the worst circumstances since war. Moreover, Japan is in conflict with Korea for a territorial dispute now. To take advantage of the opportunity of the disaster, Korea invaded Takeshima, although Japan has a good reason for believing that Takeshima is our territory. Incidentally, Korea cannot certify that the island is theirs. Korea continues to refuse trying to have the judge of the International Court of Justice. Although such situation, Fuji continue to broadcast Korean contents 40 hours per a week, without broadcasting such very important problem. Something is strange.

⑥Fuji TV Network treated successive Prime Minister's name as suspects in the drama. Is Fuji really a Japanese TV station?

⑦A heroine of Fuji's drama on August 7th was wearing T-shirts written "Little-Boy" (The Hiroshima atomic bomb: August 6) (Little-Boy is code name of Hiroshima atomic bomb). Have you seen the photograph of the radiation victim in Hiroshima? Fuji Television Network laughs at atomic bomb victims.

⑧Similarly, a fat man was wearing T-shirts written "9" in the drama. Atomic bomb which was dropped to Nagasaki on August 9th is "Fat-Man". Some people said "You read too much into it." But, a person identified the T-shirts after that. "ROC WEAR" sells T-shirts on which atomic bomb is printed. Fuji Television Network said "We didn't intend like that. It's a matter of regret if you judged so." However, the producer of the drama has a big relation for production of "bare foot Gen". This story was made in reference to the victim of atomic bomb. Therefore, Fuji's excuse just won't sell. Obviously, they did intentionally.

⑨"Kimigayo" is a Japanese national anthem.
ISU World Figure Skating Championships in 2007: Miki Ando won the championship. Fuji didn't broadcast "Kimigayo".
ISU World Figure Skating Championships in 2008: Mao Asada won the championship. Fuji didn't broadcast "Kimigyo".
ISU World Figure Skating Championships in 2009:Yuna Kim, a Korea player, won the championship. Fuji broadcast Korean anthem.
ISU World Figure Skating Championships in 2010: Mao Asada won the championship. (Complaints rush. Fuji did an explanation hard to hear and promised to improve the action of own later.)
ISU World Figure Skating Championships in 2011: Miki Ando won the championship.
Fuji didn't broadcast a picture of the Japanese flag projected on ice and an earthquake disaster support message from Russia. (Their action is not improved.)」
Japan Derby in 2011: Fuji didn't broadcast the Kimigayo performance before the race.
FIFA Women's World Cup in 2011: "Nadeshiko Japan" won the championship. They did not broadcast Japanese victory lap. U.S.A. and the Canadian broadcasting station broadcasted it.

⑩Fuji TV does not report it about "the danger of the human rights relief bill" and "danger of the foreign franchise". Possibility to threaten Japanese national sovereignty is very high in these bills submitted to the Diet soon. When own sovereignty seems to be threatened, we make resistance against it thoroughly.

⑪There are countless videos now uploaded in Youtube that show that Fuji has been using subliminal effects (manipulating the subconscious of the viewers) to promote Korean contents. These evidences show that in programs that have nothing to do with Korea, they slip in images of kpop star, put in words like "love korea" in the background, and use korean national flag designs in the background. The thing to note is that it's all in the background and only after careful observation can you make them out to be such. Google subliminal effect for details. It's been banned by law btw. Example of brainwashing by the subliminal effect:

Fuji said "We are broadcasting Korean contents, because cost effectiveness is good."
However, that cannot convince us.
"Fuji's Not Broadcasting Kimigayo", "Fuji's Not Broadcasting political contributions", "Fuji's Not Broadcasting Takeshima problem" and so on.
Fuji wants to only replace a point at issue of "criticizing Korean contents". The focal point of the DEMO is Fuji's INCLINATION BROADCASTING.


seems like actually they've hold their grudge against Fuji for quite a long time now and the Takaoka's incident really sets the trigger and we can hear clapping and agreeing from the bystanders in those videos.

How long have you been in Japan to experience the crap you went through?
I never stayed there long, but everytime I went there I was expecting the same scenarios you went thru, and it never happened to me..(like, kids crying....people not wanting to sit next to me on the train, cops stopping me)only shit I got was this old bitch saying I had big feet and saying this other foreign chick was Barbie incarnate but I was just..girl with big feet.

lol sorry wrong icon, was typing this at work while rushing to eat dinner*
dun think that icon was meant for this topic!!
omoinagara Re: just curious24th-Aug-2011 05:12 am (UTC)
You're lucky then. I was there for only six weeks and like guiltyschu, children would start crying when they saw me or hide behind their parents. Also old people wouldn't sit next to me on the train.
guiltyschu Re: just curious24th-Aug-2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
The old people, I kind of let slide because I figure they're just pissed off about the war. Hell, MY grandparents are still pissed about the war. It happens. But the kids, that one kills me, because it's so sad to see that sort of negative perception of foreigners being built into children, for no reason.

Also, I'm a kindergarten teacher. Makes it hard to have a class when half of them are sobbing about hating you.
__planitbremix Re: just curious24th-Aug-2011 04:28 pm (UTC)
I know the old person train thing will happen to me eventually, but whenever I see the elderly get on the train, I offer up my seat before that situation can occur. But that old bitch telling me I had big feet, I regret not insulting her right back *sighs*
guiltyschu Re: just curious24th-Aug-2011 12:40 pm (UTC)
I've lived in Japan approximately three years now. And I'm glad you've only had positive experiences over here! I've unfortunately run into a lot of in-your-face racism. One time I was at an amusement park and a girl refused to sit next to me on a ride, stating that I was 'kimoi' (disgusting) and that she didn't want to sit next to me. Her friend joined in saying how disgusting I was, and eventually her exasperated boyfriend sat next to me. I was too stunned and horrified to even reply to them and let them know I understood.

For the record - I am completely average looking. I clock in at 168cm and 56kg, and am pretty similar in build to most Japanese, so I'm not some sort of terrifying giantess here. I even wear deodorant and makeup and dress in socially appropriate clothing. ;D It was simply that I was foreign.

Did all these accounts happen when you were alone?
i'am starting to think this never happened to me cause I was always around friends, so people didn't dare act a fool cause my friends would curse them out.

But, I did have that one bad experience about this old lady saying I had big feet, and not saying I was "SUTEKI!! KIREI" but fawning over this other foreign girl saying this crap, and looked like Barbie right infront of me. She also complimented her Japanese, but not mine, when she hardly spoke a word in Japanese and needed a translator(opposite of me who would respond back in Japanese to her). Old ass heffa!!! She so lucky I didn't want to be a smart ass that day and I'am generally a non-confrontational person.

I will be moving to Japan to teach the young kiddies as well in Otcober. So I know ima get the crying (OMG SHE A FOREIGNER) babies very soon, and that other crap once they realize I'am here to stay. *sighs* but im used to babies looking and crying at me here in America. Bleh...

I don't think being alone or with a friend change anything.... I stayed a month alone last year, travelling through south and the east of Japan, and nothing of the sort happened to me. Oo And I didn't stay only in '' big'cities...

Elderly people were really nice and they tried to help me (one even checked into her bag to give me a candy and was worried that I could catch a cold, I didn't know her at all). I spoke in broken japanese with some of them...

Policemen helped me more than once when I got lost too, or if I had a question...

I met and made friends who were still in HS or going to Uni...

And people sat next to me even if there were other places left... I paid lots of attention to my surrounding since it was my first time and I was alone and I never had any pb of the sort... Oh, wait no! Once. With a man, who once the perso next to him went out, he switched place with her.

But that's like...Nothing in a month of constant train/metro/shikansen....

And as I said, I was totally alone...

And no children cried xD nor looked at me weirdly...Then again, I didn't really met (meaning, more than simply pass by) much.

I'm really foreign looking ( many asked me if I was from Brazil...Which I'm not, but they don't have a lot of arabic/Middle East looking people over there, it seems )


I'm not saying that Japan is all rainbow and butterflies. Racism exist, like everywhere. But I've felt it way more in other westernians countries, than there...Even in places where I stayed less than a month ...

Maybe the " where you're from'' is also a huge factor? I know that racism in Japan toward other Asian's countries and especially South East Asia is quite important
