“Japan: Anarchist on death row,” author unknown, pages 1-2.
Reports on the jailing of K. Omori who was convicted (on very sketchy
evidence) of bombing a government office on the island of Hokkaido in
March 1976, an event in which two people died. He was arrested on
witness reports having seen him the night of the bombing, that he had
sugar and batteries in his house. During the trial Omori denied any
involvement but claimed that he supported the action and also tried to
punch the judge. Hokkaido was occupied by the Japanese in 1868 the
Ainu, the inhabitants of the island, were treated as slave labour, the
women raped and many died in conflict. Omori, while not an Ainu,
supports the Ainu anti-Japanese campaigns.

practices to be lifted.
