Subject: View of the Japanese Community

Dear fellow ISM stakeholders,

Thank you for providing this platform.

I attended the 1pm meeting on Monday at ISM but was unable to be present at the meeting at the Polo Club in the evening. I am told that a Japanese national told that gathering that the Japanese community is likely to stay neutral on the issue of what is going on at the school.

I would like to put on record that I am a Japanese national and have absolutely no intention of staying neutral. I believe the future of our children is being put at risk by the activities of the board of trustees and am prepared to do my utmost to prevent these people wrecking a fine institution. I am sure my views are shared by many in the Japanese community.

I will attend the meeting today, which is confirmed at 3PM to offer my full support to the faculty and I hope others will join me.

Yours truly,

Rika Raby-Natsuaki
