Cambodian students join KIA’s Hikoza Festival

July 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Kota Town hosted its annual Hikoza Festival yesterday, July 26, 2008. The event was organized by Kota International Association (KIA) and attended by hundreds of Japanese people and foreigners.

At the festival, there were several performances, including the Japanese drum shows and folk dances; Cambodian traditional coconut dance (Robam Kosh Tralaok) performed by ORN Panhha, SAMBO Samphors, SUN Chhun Hieng, SIN Sokanha, NOP Kanharith and CHAN Sokyeng, from Nagoya University; and the Brazilian Samba performance. The uniqueness of the event was the parade of school kids and various performers, together with other participants, along the main streets of the town center until about 8pm.

Hikoza festival is one of the KIA’s three events, including Natsu Matsuri (summer festival) and the international exchange party, participated by Cambodian students in and nearby Nagoya.

    I have recently been dpeely moved by the film Amazing Grace’ about William Wilberforce’s fight to abolish slavery in Britain. It took 20 years and I am sure he would be dpeely ashamed to see that slavery, although illegal is rife and that child slavery particularly is everywhere. We see it, we know about it but we choose not to do anything about it, just as ever before. I am concerned about the rise in demand for sugar cane to fuel eco friendly fuel’. This is a nonsense, all it fuels is slavery and the inflation of basic food produce that impacts most harshly on the poorest societies and communities in our world. I am willing to do more and will be able to make a better contribution towards spreading the word when I launch my blog next Spring.I will tweet this blog on Twitter with a view to generating some interest in a wider debate.Thank you for bringing this subject into the light where it can be seen and heard.Sue
