The first Children Peace Conference was held in Okinawa Shogaku High School in Naha on March 8. About 60 students discussed understanding different cultures and promoting mutual peace.

The participants focused on problems with Turkish immigration in Germany and talked about how people can create peace in different cultures.

From the viewpoint of German citizens, one of the students said, “The nation should give minimum rights to the immigrants and recognize other rights depending on how much tax they pay.” Another spoke for Turkish immigrants, “The nation should provide equal work opportunities for the immigrants regardless of their economic circumstances.”

Some of the students said the nation should pay the immigrants to leave the country.

Seira Higa of Miyako High School said, “I would like to be more conscious about peace.”
