AITEN events and meetings in March 18th -20th – 21th !

1. This Saturday, 18th March 2017, Sacred Heart International School
will hold their annual Family Festival.

And again this year the organizers have waived the fee for the table so that AITEN members and supporters can ask
people to write and/or sign cards for Prisoners of Conscience, to buy AI goods or make a  donation, and can support and exchange ideas with the school AI group.
There is food and drink from around the world, an amazing range of stuff to buy, and the festival will go ahead rain or shine, so come to Hiroo subway station on
the Hibiya Line (one stop from Ebisu), enjoy the festival (it runs from 10:00 to 16:00), and help out on our table for an hour or so.
We really need your help!
