    Best wishes for the tour!

    I'm sure that it will stimulate new awareness of the movement, and much interesting discussion.

    I recently visited the University of Iowa, and discussed the ribu movement, and its relationship to the new left in Japan, and the united red army incident in 1972.

    Looking forward to hearing how the tour progresses and the responses to the video.
