A Happy New Year!
I just came back from a two-week trip to Japan, including a week in Okinawa. In Okinawa, I visited various historic sites like the Peace Memorial Museum and Himeyuri Memorial. I also visited US military bases in Kadena, Futenma, the office of Ginowan City, which hosts the Futenma Air Station. The most memorable was my visit to Henoko, a small fishing town in Nago, where activists are sitting-in against the planned construction of the V-shaped runways. Some of you have probably seen my recent blog posts regarding the issue.
Here are the upcoming Peace Philosophy Salons for the winter term of 2010.
January 30 (Sat) Evening
Film "The Sirota Family and the 20th Century"
Co-organized by Vancouver Save Article 9 and Peace Philosophy Centre
March 20 (Sat) Evening

The details of these salons will be announced soon. Due to the Olympics, we decided not to hold any salon in February. Please mark your calendar for now. For the reports of past salons, please see here.
Please visit the blog regularly, and join us in the Facebook "Peace Philosophy Salon" if you like to be updated on our activities.
I look forward to another term of mutual learning and sharing with you.
All the best,
