Fumiaki looked well, and when I asked his physical condition, he said that he couldn't be bad health.
At our August meeting we discussed about our future activities after the conclusion of the collective self-defense on 7.1, but it did not come to any decision. I was actually fatigued and he worried about my smiling face presented not a real smiling, and he wrote to me a letter for that.
"Our fighting for 40 years is the fight against destruction of solidarity, so we will win by developing real solidarities."
In recent years non-regular employees are extremely increasing. My neighborhood in Asagaya, Tokyo is the same; there are many homeless people in a park behind downtown.
People are thinking in earnest about tomorrow in the hopeless age of Abe administration.
I found that the people who were watching Fumiaki's art with keen interest are increasing steadily in these days. He has been drawing hope of life for 40 years. The fighting to free Fumiaki is a battle of finding a hope. I believe that we will be able to collect a million of signatures in the near future.
Fumiaki concluded about the suppression against him. The authority is not only against Fumiaki but also his supporters who are helping, including all labors in the world. That is why we have to fight together. This is not an individual fighting.
He seemed to be so happy because I had a brilliant smiling while I visited him.
The State Compensation to the Video
On the 9th, Fumiaki told me that he wanted me to tell his people to protest against outsourcing by the companies in Koriyama, Fukushima prefecture.
On the next day, I reported him that we won the missing video case.
It came down to the responsibility of Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department which had poor management on the custody of important evidences, which the court did not pay attention for a long time.
Fumiaki was pleased about the win, saying that it would lead the disclosure of other evidence.
On the 11th, the prison returned his picture to me, which was titled "The hills on Furano where I walk with Akiko". Fumiaki selected a motif from a photo book that Masami Kuraoka gave Fumiaki when she visited him. He wrote "For Kuraoka Sisters" on the painting. He wanted me to send a replica to Masami. She lost her sister.
On the last day, he told me about his study. He is studying on importance of human's collaboration with all creation. Our topic was about our relationship. Fumiaki said, "Our relationship became one life we give each other. The people we had relationship with also share our lives together through sharing the experience. Since we meet five days in a row, I feel still together even after you are gone."
It was very fulfilling meeting though I wanted talk more.
