Organizations Using the Internet
Modified 24 April 2009
- Aum Shinri Kyo (a.k.a. Aum Supreme Truth, a.k.a. Aleph) — Established in 1987, this group dispersed sarin, a nerve gas, in the Tokyo subway on 20 March 1995, killing a dozen people and injuring up to 6,000. They've been trying to build connections to Russia, particularly in its Far East, and some of this has involved attempts to purchase weapons and military transport vehicles. They have adopted a view that Armageddon would be initiated by a USA-Japan World War III. In January 2000 control passed from its founder (now in prison) to Fumihiru Joyu, and the group changed its name to Aleph.
- Japanese Red Army — once had some advocacy pages on Geocities.
- Kokusaisyugi (Internationalism) — Marxist revolutionary group — http://www.ngy1.1st.ne.jp/~ieg/index-e.html
- Okinawa — Some feel that Okinawa is definitely not a part of Japan, it was aggressively invaded by Japan and is still occupied: http://www.well.com/user/nobumasa/
- Also see the North Korea section, as North Korea's use of the Internet seems to be based on Japanese supporters.
