    From Mark Smith at the Children’s Rights Network Japan–Debito

    There is another “Protest Against Japanese Abductions” coming up in Portland

    Oregon this Saturday, Sunday and the following week. (Feb 3,4,10,11). This is

    the FOURTH event so far, and promises to be the biggest yet. There are over 20

    left behind parents, friends, and family known to be attending this time. One

    of the four parent organizers has already been interviewed on the radio about

    this. You can listen to an MP3 of the radio interview here:

    You can see more information about past events as well as this one on a new

    webpage that documents all the events:

    If you know anyone in Portland, please tell them that this Saturday would be a

    great time to go out and see this moving film as well as show support for

    left-behind parents of children abducted to Japan. Details are here:
