Delivery of Article 21 Hague Applications on March 31 2014
« on: March 17, 2014, 04:14:55 PM »
 On April 1, 2014 Japan is expected to implement The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. No provisions have been made to directly address the 400 cases of U.S. children kidnapped to Japan since 1994.
 
At 9AM on March 31, 2014, BACHOME leadership, parents, and supporters will come together in Washington, D.C. to hand deliver an estimated 35 Hague Article 21 Access Applications to the U.S. Department of State. This will be followed by a ceremonious march to the Embassy of Japan where they have requested to meet with Ambassador Sasae.  We hope to have as many supporters turn out as possible to march with us in solidarity.  CNN and several other press organizations will be joining us for our march.  Schedule of events is as follows:
 
9:00 AM -  Meet at 1667 K Street NW.  Parents will each receive individual applications in a sealed envelope.
9:30 AM -  Begin march from K Street past the White House to the State Department Headquarters 2201 C St NW, Washington, DC
10:00 AM -  Arrive at State Department Headquarters and present applications
10:30 AM -  Walk or drive to Japanese Embassy at 2520 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest, Washington, D.C.
11:30 AM -  Arrive at the Japanese Embassy for rally and requested meeting with the Japanese Ambassador.
1:30 PM -  Lunch at Cafe Dupont near Dupont Circle
 
Anyone interested in joining in support is asked to email bachome@bachome.org
