The picture show the Gundam holding up a Japanese flag with the words "Ganbare Nippon" which roughly translates into "Do Your Best, Japan!". The comments below reads (rough translation into English) "Today I wish the victims of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear explosions well. To those who are involved in the relief and to the Japan Self Defense Crops, Thank You. Do your best Japan. Do your best Japan.
