Unlucky Seven


June 15
7 years to the day since Rui was abducted and taken to where the Japanese state would assert its sovereignty and claim jurisdiction over my son, unchallenged by any institution, regardless of international law, concern for children’s protection, or feelings of shared humanity.

Japan’s Fuji TV reported on Rui’s abduction in 2011, and tried to hide the identity of the abductor in this way (with facial blurring). They ought to have known;  Japan offers no rememdies for victims of child abduction. They could have put her name and face in lights.

Peter Tosh here speaks for me. (It seems it really did happen this way, within a year… without the mystical aspect of the universe turning on wrongdoing. It remains for us the living to set that right…)

Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
All along that day

You’re gonna run to the rocks,
The rocks will be melting.
When you run to the rocks,
The rocks will be melitng.
When you run to the rocks,
The rocks will be melitng.
I said all along that day.

You gonna run to the sea,
But the sea will be boiling.
When you run to the sea,
The sea will be boiling.
You will run to the sea,
The sea will be boiling.
All along that day.

(Sad day for you, man)

You gonna run to the Lord
But the Lord will be hiding
You gonna run to the Lord
But the Lord will be hiding
You will run to the Lord
But the Lord will be hiding
All along that day.

I wouldn’t like to be a flea,
Under your collar man.
I wouldn’t like to be a flea,
In your collar man.
I wouldn’t like to be a flea,
Under your collar.
All along that day.

You gonna run, but you can’t hide
You gonna run, but you can’t hide
You gonna run, but you can’t hide
All along that day

Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
Downpresser man – where you gonna run to?
All along that day

This song is dedicated to Ohnuki Kensuke, Terauchi Machiko, and the love you could cripple but could not kill. May you grow a conscience so that it can haunt and torment you.

Rui –  Daddy’s love for you will never die, while we both live and breathe.

    Dear Brian,
    No words can express the sadness we feel for you and Rui. One day is too long to be deprived of seeing and holding one’s child. We thought of you two today when we were at Tompkins Square Park not realizing it has been seven years since Rui was abducted. We hope you and Rui will be reunited soon.
    Love,
    g&s
