Shiro Yabu

I am still appreciative to David Graeber for his having participated in the international protest against the 2008 G8 Summit in Hokkaido. He joined us by bravely going through the nasty immigration blockades set up by the Japanese state against political radicals. He directly spoke to and encouraged Japanese youth. With his witty but accessible language, David taught us the truth that radical struggle is grounded on — neither the political maneuver of the old nor the instantaneous impulse of the young, but the faith in justice that continues to live among people since the time immemorial.
