This chapter discusses how the coastal areas of Kawasaki emerged as a major zainichi Korean district and later as the center of zainichi activism in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. The Kawasaki Korean Christian Church, and the nursery school that opened inside the chapel provided zainichi activists with a social space to contest the discriminatory employment practice of Hitachi—one of the largest electronics corporations in Japan and the world. Zainichi activists founded Seikyusha (Green Hill Association), a social welfare organization that fought against ethnic discrimination, and won the Hitachi Employment Discrimination Trial.

Keywords:   zainichi activism, Kawasaki Korean Christian Church, Hitachi, Seikyusha, Hitachi Employment Discrimination Trial
