US Congress to Vote Demanding Japan
Respect Children’s Rights – H. Res 1326
September 28th, 2010

H. Res 1326, demanding Japan reunite abducted children with their parents, will be debated on the House Floor tomorrow (9/28) in the U.S. between 2 and 3 PM for 40 minutes and televised on C-Span. (Full video available here. The resolution passed 416 to 1.) Then a roll call vote calling for every Congressman to vote on the resolution will occur between 10 AM and 11 AM on Wednesday, to be followed by a Capitol Hill Press Conference about the resolution. This update came from our friends at BAC Home, one of the organizations and groups of people who have worked diligently to bring this issue to public attention. C-Span, which is broadcast live nationwide in the United States, can be see worldwide at C-Span, so you can watch the proceedings live if you live outside the US.

H. Res 1326 calls “on the Government of Japan to immediately address the growing problem of abduction to and retention of United States citizen minor children in Japan, to work closely with the Government of the United States to return these children to their custodial parent or to the original jurisdiction for a custody determination in the United States, to provide left-behind parents immediate access to their children, and to adopt without delay the 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.” Read about the entire resolution here with full text here. It’s worth a read. The language includes, “condemns the abduction and retention of all minor children being held in Japan away from their United States parents in violation of their human rights and United States and international law”. Congress seems to be getting it right.

To be sure, this bill is strongly aimed at those children who are abducted by a parent cross-border into Japan. But the language, “to provide left-behind parents immediate access to their children” not only addresses those children, but the much greater number, thousands more, children who have lost access to one of their parents while growing up in Japan. These kids have parents who live and work in Japan, then suddenly one day, one of their parents is no longer part of the family, blocked by the other parent and assisted by the courts, police, and schools from seeing the child.

This step by the US Congress in demanding change in Japan is only a minor first step in what is to become an ever increasing spectacle pointing to the egregious human rights abuse being perpetrated against children in Japan. It’s time to wake up Japan and protect the most precious resource of any nation, the next generation. Acknowledge and enforce a child’s right to know in ongoing relationship both parents.
