Participants march crying
"Let's make the society
which has no discrimination"
in Utsunomiya-shi, Tochigi Prefecture.
The amended Disabilities Discrimination Act was carried out on April 1. It prohibits the discriminatory handling because of disability, requiring an autonomous body and an enterprise to provide "reasonable accommodations" to the person with disability.
Persons with disabilities, their families and others concerned commemorated the start of the Act and paraded a city in Gunma, Tochigi Prefectures, etc.
