15 April 2013, JAPAN- Tokyo

Peace Boat staff, Watanabe Rika and Karen Hallows gave a lecture in the morning of Global Action on Military Spending day as the first step was to raise awareness among participants about the day and what it means.

Participants were invited to show their solidarity with the movement by taking a photograph on top deck.  The participants gathered on the deck under the hot midday sun with a banner that said “Cut Military Spending” in English and Japanese.
