What is Buraku Discrimination in Japan?
Buraku discrimination is one type of discrimination in Japanese society, and is based on the birth place, where one lives, and/or the status of the family. This discrimination is not a racial discrimination but a peculiar form of discrimination in Japan. The United Church of Christ in Japan started the struggle against Buraku discrimination as an important mission in 1975. In 1981 the Buraku Liberation Center was established and their mission and struggle continues. ...

In conclusion
The work of the UCCJ with the issue of buraku discrimination was established in solidarity with the movements in other buraku areas and local churches. The work of the Center must be based on the many voices of those who tackle buraku discrimination. The empowerment of the Center is impossible without the solidarity of other liberation movements against racism, sexism, and so forth. The movement against buraku discrimination should be connected with other movements against human rights violations. The solidarity with anti-discrimination movements is the center for life of the buraku liberation movement. This is the testimony of the Buraku Liberation Center.
