Writing for The Equal Times, journalist Carmen Grau interviews Ainu leaders Fumio Kimura, Shizue Ukaji,
Last evening, Ryoko and I reported what the five-day art and academic event in Sapporo was. The venue was a classroom administered by the Sapporo Freedom School, Non-Profit Organisation which provides the citizens of Sapporo with chargeable courses regarding problems facing civil society in Japan. I felt happy to share the outcomes of the event with people taking our course. In my area in Sapporo, the snow lay 104 centimetres deep. It is almost the average year value.
