Cockroaches Part 2

Updates to the 犯罪外人裏ファイル (Secret File on Foreign Crime)/Family Mart boycott at Japan Probe and 美しい日本。 The story has also started to appear in the  press outside Japan (but not inside, apparently). A repeated theme in the comments section of blogs covering this story is that of “freedom of speech”, that is, that Family Mart has the right to sell whatever it wants and Eichi has the right to publish whatever they want. These companies, of course, possess the freedom to sell and publish whatever they want within the law, just as we, as consumers, have the right not to buy products from stores that sell things we find dangerous or disgusting.
