Angry Single Men Stage Anti-Christmas Rally In Tokyo

0
Anti-Christmas protesters calling
themselves “Losers with Women” marched through Tokyo’s streets today,
bashing the upcoming holiday as a capitalist ploy that also discriminates
against singletons.
The group of about 20, part of the
Communist-inspired group that routinely protests Western holidays marched under
angry banners that read “Smash Christmas!” in Tokyo’s Shibuya
district, where couples and families strolled for holiday shopping.
The scrooges’ mostly single men, said
they were against capitalism and were opposed to the commercialisation of
Christmas.

“In this world, money is
extracted from people in love, and happy people support capitalism,” said
the head of the organisation, formally called Kakumeiteki Hi-mote Domei, or the
Revolutionary Losers’ League.
“Christmas is the most
symbolic event for this,” he added.
The man, who identified himself
only by the pseudonym MarkWater, said the rally was also in support of unloved
men.
“Unpopular men, who don’t
have a girlfriend or are not married, are overly discriminated. We want to
break this barrier,” he told AFP amid the shouting protesters.
In Japan, Christmas is not an
official holiday and is mostly celebrated informally as a romantic event for
couples, while the New Year’s day is an occasion for family reunion.
The Christian population remains
small in the Asian country, stores offer special holiday sales and people
decorate Christmas trees at home.
The group has held past marches to
denounce imported Western holidays, including rallies against Valentine’s Day.
