There will be a peaceful march for Black Lives Matter in Fukuoka on Sunday, June 21st. The organizers aim to spread awareness of the movement and expect the event to be well-attended. Previous Black Lives Matter marches in Osaka and Tokyo attracted over 4500 attendees combined.
Democrats Abroad Japan fully supports this event and encourages members to attend if possible. It would be wonderful to see Fukuoka bring the combined attendance up to 5000 attendees! Please follow any precautions for coronavirus as set by the organizers and follow all local ordinance for a peaceful march.
Time: Sunday, June 21st, 13:00 JST (1:00pm)
