Student Groups

SEALDs

Founded in May 2015, the “Students Emergency Action for Liberal Democracy /自由と民主主義のための学生緊急行動 (SEALDs)” protested against the Abe administration, especially regarding the Security Bills and its push for constitutional reform. The group dissolved in August 2018. The members organized this group based on the ASPL (“Students Against Secret Protection Law/特定秘密保護法に反対する学生有志の会), which was founded in 2014 to oppose the State Secrecy Law. This website contains information about their activities, including their statements.
