This is the U.S. Futenma Marine base on Okinawa, Japan. The people of Okinawa have been organizing for years to close U.S. bases there. Today Okinawa hosts about three dozen U.S. bases and 75% of American forces that are based in Japan which are spread out amongst 90 bases across the country.
Imagine living with these helicopters and planes flying virtually every day over your home - day and night.
There are almost 1,000 U.S. military bases around the world as part of the empire. People want them closed.
Think of the huge amount of funds that are wasted maintaining these imperial bases. What could we do with those funds back here at home?
Don't the people in all these places around the world have a right to be free of our military bases?
