This year 2021 marks five years since the “Sagamihara killing of disabled people”

This year 2021 marks five years since the “Sagamihara killing of disabled people” occurred on 26 July 2016, in which people residing at Tsukui Yamayurien in Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture, were attacked, claiming 19 precious lives and seriously injuring 26 others. With the growing sense of stagnation in Japan, partly due to the Corona 19 pandemic that began in 2020, there has been no end to hate speech and hate crimes against minorities, including people with disabilities. On the fifth anniversary of the incident, we must remember the regret of each victim and continue the fight against eugenics to ensure that a similar incident never happens again. We also pledge…

DPI Japan’s resolution to request on state’s apology and compensation for victims of eugenic surgery

1st June 2018 State of Japan, by enacting the Eugenic Protection Law (1948-1996), had legalized both eugenic surgery (sterilization) and abortion by reason of disability with the purpose of “prevent(ing) birth of inferior descendants” “from the standpoint of eugenic protection” and “protect(ing) the life and health of the mother”. Under the law more than 25,000 people were sterilized. At least 16,500 people were forcibly sterilized and 70% of them were women.

Disabled people are still often forced into crowded and unsanitary living conditions, barred from participation in society, and even killed. The killing of disabled people most often…
