Hi Blog.  Just to let you know, I’m on the road from early tomorrow morning, with only sporadic email/internet access.  I’ll be tooling around Tokyo after Morioka this weekend, so if you want to come see me speak somewhere, here are some venues:


SUNDAY MAR 21 Sendai FRANCA Third Meeting

Location: AER Building El Solar 28F Meeting Room 1
Sunday, 21 March 10 @ 13:30 Ends 16:30

Come along to our third meeting and talk about issues relevant to Sendai FRANCA. We will be looking at recent events and planning for the future, including the possibility of a lawsuit against the Sumo Association for its new rule counting naturalized citizens as “foreign wrestlers” for their stable limitations. Cost: FREE (suggested donation 200 yen)

THURS MAR 25 is my annual guest lecture at Shiga University on issues of discrimination and assimilation. Starts 1PM. More details Dr Robert Aspinall at aspinall_robert AT hotmail DOT com.

SATURDAY MAR 27 FRANCA Tokyo Meeting Saturday March 27, 2010; 6PM-9PM International House of Japan 5-11-16 Roppongi Minato-ku, Tokyo Meeting Name – FRANCA. How to get there at http://www.i-house.or.jp/en/ihj/access.html

Topics: Membership, Why FRANCA?, and perhaps what to do about the recent Sumo Association rules that say that naturalized sumo wrestlers are also to be counted as the one “foreign” wrestler allowed in sumo stables. More on that here:https://www.debito.org/?p=6085
