I released the unpermitted archive of Katsuichi Honda Study Group

Katsuichi Honda Study Group ( the released archive ) was a Japanese net circle to research how Katsuichi Honda, a star reporter of the Asahi Shimbun Newspaper has falsified his works among their editions and reprints, from 1999 to 2002.

The first key accusation is that Katsuichi Honda falsified his reports about Combodia’s Khumer Rouge, Pol Pot faction’s mass killing of Cambodians. And the second was that Katsuichi Honda does also “中国の旅” that praised the Cultural Revolution. I introduced the 2nd accusation with the quotes of the raw sources and Dr. Yuushi Nishimura suggested that they found Honda Katsuichi Study Group for Honda’s complicating falsifications. Yoshinori Sasaki, the founder invited me to the group and I’m an original member.

A leftist denying the holocaust joined this group, too but it’s simply for neutrality for the members with any thoughts from right to left. I’m a net conservative who believe the holocaust is true.

The website’s URIs are http://hello.to/hondaken and it redirected to http://www.geocities.co.jp/WallStreet/8442/ About 20 years stop of the group’s action, after the extinct of its mailing list’s log, Geocities ended their service and the websites is only on Internet Archive. Formerly, two other archivers shows the Geocities Japan’s websites but look that they quitted.

I personally ripped some websites on Geocities Japan. But I couldn’t decide to release the log by their author’s rights. But in such a situation, I tried doing that. ( I don’t know how to contact the original admins of Katsuichi Honda Study Group. )

I modified this archive for converting the contents into UTF-8, with putting strikes of its access counter, with changing the links to its top page.

The archive’s URI is https://users.emmanuelc.dix.asia/hondaken/ and the website is written only in Japanese.
