Solidarity with Black Lives Matter Movement

Posted 2020-06-03 08:19:34 by Jun Akiyama


AikiWeb wishes to express our solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and protests taking place all across the world.

George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are but the latest names of countless Black people killed due to systemic racism. Our hearts go out to their families and their communities who are rightfully feeling grief, anger, and more.

Aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba expressed wishes that his art be used to reconcile the world and to make all human beings one family. And, as Zen teacher Zenju Earthlyn Manuel wrote, "awareness of oneness in life includes difference." AikiWeb believes this requires speaking up against injustice in all of its forms and is reminded of Desmond Tutu's quote, "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."

The Aikido community is not immune to these unjust dynamics. We can always do more and continuously improve ourselves. Please join the movement to bring about a more equitable world through donations, engagement, and advocacy. Thank you.
