Code adopted by the English-language Daily Yomiuri on 1 September 1946.
We believe in truth, justice and fraternity because these represent the way to peace and freedom.
We shall fight boldly against dictatorial tendencies on both the left and right because such tendencies are the enemies of democracy.
We shall fight to help the oppressed and to protect the freedoms and rights of the individual. We shall never cease that fight until victory is assured.
We shall endeavor to speed the reconstruction of Japan and to raise Japan to a position of respect and trust among nations because therein lies the way to a meaningful life for this nation and people.
