We received an update from Gensuikyo that the youth groups participating in the Peace March will be staying the night of May 5 in Yumenoshima Park. This is where the Peace March will officially start on May 6. Our international relay marcher, Magiting Fabros, will also be with them. Exciting! 楽しみ！
As translation for the rest of the Peace March flyer is under way, below is a translated excerpt that can serve as partial 101 of the upcoming event. It expresses all the calls and desires of the people participating in / supporting the Peace March.
