Stepping Up Resistance in Okinawa
Citizens in Okinawa recently threw out politicians on their island who had betrayed the people by supporting US military base expansion. Now they are increasing the pressure by organizing blockades of these bases. In the case of Henoko (northern Okinawa) the US wants to build an airfield that goes right out into the ocean where endangered species are found.
People all over the world are saying NO to the string of more than 800 US imperial bases. We need that same spirit back here in the USA.
If we could ever end the US war machine's global dominance we would have money for jobs, health care, education, infrastructure repair and more in this country. See the links - make the connections.
