 Joint movements by university students, academics, and faculty members to abolish the unconstitutional war legislation are spreading. At the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University, students and like-minded teaching staff held gatherings on their campuses. Their opposition to the war legislation has snowballed since the cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe steamrolled the legislation in the House of Representatives. As of July 20, groups of like-minded faculty members (including students at some universities) at 18 universities have released statements opposing the legislation. (Abridged)
