If you require special protection or nondisclosure, please indicate so on the form. The information you provide will be used for contact and identity verification purposes. After the procedure is completed, unnecessary personal information will be promptly destroyed after being processed into a form in which the individual cannot be identified. Petitions should be made by the person making the petition based on their own free will. This, along with the authenticity of the information you provide, must be pledged at the time of submission. If we do not hear back from you for more than a week regarding your petition, we will consider your petition resolved and close the process.

​Injunction procedure

Injunction requests must be petitioned in advance with the same content and settled (rejected, dismissed, etc.) in a manner that does not comply with the content of the petition, except when requested by the subcommittee. When seeking an injunction, you must file the case number of the petition that was denied. Please use the "Injunction Request Form" at the bottom of this page to send the names, student ID numbers, and email addresses of 20 SFC students who agree to the injunction request, as well as the self-government actions you wish to institute. The Shonan Neighborhood Association will announce receipt of the injunction within 36 hours of the form being submitted and will send an authenticity confirmation email to all backers. In addition, if there are any deficiencies in the application, the representative of the request will be notified to that effect within the same time. Supporters are requested to reply within 72 hours of receiving the e-mail, stating that they are requesting an injunction based on their own free will. If there are no special circumstances and all 20 members do not complete their pledges within the time limit, the Shonan Neighborhood Association can resume self-governing activities. Once we have confirmed everyone's pledges, we will communicate with you to remedy the issues raised regarding the suspended autonomy. Communication will be done via Slack or face-to-face (whether face-to-face or online), but we will take measures such as recording to ensure that all records remain. If all 20 individuals indicate that the issue has been resolved, the autonomy will resume. All 20 people will be required to express their acceptance of these measures, even if they wish to amend or withdraw them.

​InjunctionNotes on

An injunction will be made public in its entirety and in all communications, except for personal and highly sensitive information. This is to allow the public to confirm whether the injunction itself is a legitimate request and whether the Shonan Neighborhood Association is responding in good faith in accordance with its discipline. If no response is received from any or all of the injunction seekers for more than seven (7) days, the person shall be deemed to have declared the matter resolved. However, the injunction will continue unless all parties express a resolution. The Shonan Neighborhood Association shall not give or receive money or other goods, entertain guests, hold secret meetings, exert pressure, or otherwise improperly demand the termination of the suspension for the purpose of resolving the suspension.  

The following matters cannot be demanded by injunction.

(1) Contrary to the Shonan Neighborhood Association charter and rules currently in force, and the norms to be followed by the Shonan Neighborhood Association enacted by Keio University, the Zenjuku Council, local governments, Japan, and others.
