'#FREEUSHIKU is a group of activists who have been supporting the detainees at the Detention Centers run by Japan Immigration. In this zine the handwritten messages by the detainees surviving the torturous detention and the activists’ words appear side by side. The battle of the May 12th when dozens of Kurdish refugees and other citizens of Japan held an all-night protest in front of the TOKYO IMMIGRATION in Shinagawa is captured by a photo by Rody Shimazaki and a witness report by one of #FREEUSHIKU members. On that night, TOKYO IMMIGRATION refused to let a severely ill Kurdish detainee get on an ambulance. This zine is dedicated to the cause of a society without detentions and concentration camps, for everyone who is here and everyone who comes. '—taken from FREEUSHIKU's website
