I am refugee - I am not criminal! Give back our family/friends

These were the slogans of a demonstration in Tokyo against the Japanese Immigration Bureau on the International Day of the Refugee on 20 June. It was organised by various groups and was so far the biggest protest yet in support of human rights for the refugees that are being held in the detention centres. The struggle of support groups, friends and families to get refugees out of the detention centres and to improve their overall situation continues. It received quite a bit of attention from the media as well.

Here are two videos from the rally
