Prince Tosoun VIII is delighted that the village Fukushima in Japan is celebrating the memory of the poet Toson Shimazaki with an award. He  hopes that -and in the setting of 200 years from the demise of Prince Tosun I of Egypt-  it is going to be a celebration of the victory of the few against the many, of the spirited honour against scientific vandalism. Let this historical  movement bear fruits throughout the Asian heartland.
