Urgent Statement!!!
                                 February 1, 2012

The Hiroshima and Peace (H&P) Organizing Committee members are gravely concerned to learn that Giovanni Lo Porto, a 2009 H&P student, was a victim of kidnapping while working in Pakistan as an aid worker, according to a New York Times report on January 21. We remember Giovanni's many positive contributions to the H&P class and his strong commitment to building peace and understanding. We are shocked to hear the news of his abduction and wish to express our concern for his life and safety. We hope all the former participants and supporters of H&P will join us in praying for his immediate and safe return. At the same time, we urge everyone to consider whatever actions could potentially assist his release. One possible means would be to write an email to to urge the Italian government to take action on behalf of Giovanni Lo Porto's return, as another former H&P participant, Claudia Hille, has suggested. It is our fervent hope that Giovanni will soon return home safely and in the meantime that everyone will behave extra carefully. Again, please join us in our prayer for his immediate release.
