Make a better change

We can’t go on pretending day by day

That someone, somewhere will soon make a change

We’re all a part of God’s great big family

And the truth

You know, love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children

We are the ones who make a brighter day!

That “We are the world” song sang together Ghana, South Africa, Pakistan, Indonesian and Korean foreign workers who live in Japan during the annual stage rally on 7 March in Tokyo and demanding job security and right of equality for foreign resident live in Japan.Hundreds of foreign workers and Japanese supporters of foreign workers right are there under the rain and demanding to Japanese government to make a better working right condition for foreign residence.
Drug Ayers, 46 years old motor engineer said, I came to Japan 18 years ago with my wife. Very hard to lives in Japan. Nobody help foreign workers and government policies against to foreigners, still didn’t give me permanent residence visa.  Without high stand skill so difficult to find the job, said Ayers.

I think foreigners come to Japan for work, wasting their life and time, said Ayers.
