A three day Peace Walk from Tacoma to Green Lake to Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in Poulsbo, WA. “For me, who was born as a Japanese, the abolition of nuclear weapons and the abolition of racism are common. To put it to the extreme, only one side does not realize it independently. The Marshall Islands, French Polynesian nuclear victims and Japanese fishermen who were victims of the hydrogen bomb should one day be compensated and apologized to. They are the same humans. And it should never happen again. It is a good opportunity. This year, I would like to walk for a world without nuclear weapons and a world without racism with paying attention to pandemics. It is only a few days walk. However, I would like to do what I can do again in a familiar place like my Ground Zero friends.”
