ANPO Struggle

Anti-US-Japan Security Treaty Protests of 1960

The US-Japan Security Treaty (ANPO) allowed US bases on Japanese soil, and established a military alliance between the US and Japan. The treaty made Japan complicit in American warmongering. From March 1959–June 1960, 30 million Japanese citizens, approximately 1/3 of the population,
participated in protest activities. Although the treaty was still (illegally) ratified, the ANPO struggle continues to be the largest protest movement in modern Japanese history.
