About AJCN

Until now, Japanese organisations and groups in Australia have established themselves with the aim of facilitating mutual friendships and building harmonious relationships with their local communities and have engaged in activities towards such end. However, at this time,  we have decided to establish a community network whose aim rather than the pursuit of "mutual friendship" is to engage in efforts to effectively address these specific problems which have now emerged.  We will engage in such activities not based on any specific political ideas but rather arises from the desire to promote "mutual friendship" with the immigrant communities and peace and tranquility within the local communities and from the universal goal as concerned residents and citizens to protect the present and future generation of  children. To fulfill this goal, we will engage in lawful activities deemed acceptable in a democratic society and extend to include activities aimed at reaching out to the government and politicians.

Our motto is based on non-confrontational rationalism. We refrain from engaging in hostile activities based on feelings of hatred when we encounter conflicts of opinion and assert our ideas and opinions in a calm and rational manner and in a way that does not offend the multicultural community aiming at all times to bring about a peaceful reconciliation and finding a way for all of us to coexist in harmony and achieve mutual prosperity. We believe that this gained us a lot of sympathy from the non-Japanese community. We will take the same position when dealing with any future incidents. Our aim is to win a victory based on the good common sense of the community encompassing the opinions of a variety of races rather than simply a political victory for the Japanese community.

We are not a community network consisting only of Japanese and Japanese descendants. We work in collaboration with the non-Japanese community who share our values of multiculturalism. As an organisation, we share the motto outlined above, however, we are completely neutral both politically and religiously and our members have absolute freedom to follow and practice any political and religious beliefs they choose. While we may collaborate with a specific political party, we do not coerce our members to cooperate with or support any particular political party. Our main goal is to engage in activities for the common cause of ensuring the welfare of the Japanese community as a whole.

It is rare to find such a peaceful society as exists in Australia anywhere else in the world. However, saying that, a hopeful future in which our peaceful lifestyle is preserved should not be taken for granted and should not be left in the hands of others counting on the goodwill and decency of all people. As such, we will continue to work on specific issues as moral citizens, withstanding the duty of care for concerned parents who wish to protect our children.

The current AJCN members consists of 20 % male member and 80 % female member, it is fair to say that the majority of AJCN members are female who have strong agreement in our above beliefs and a high participation in our activities.

We can observe that our female members have the following characters in common:

  1. A desire for their children and grandchildren to have a safe living in Australia
  2. A desire for Japanese peoples, Japanese descendants and their siblings to live with a proud for carrying a Japanese soul and discipline.
  3. A desire for the Federation of Australia where is a multicultural and multinational country which they have well mixed into and lived on, with the people from the other countries including Korean and Chinese to retain their friendships and lives peacefully.

We believe that our female members have the above desires as their fundamental desires and motives for them to have a high participation in our activities and retain their membership with us.
