Rally Against U.S. X-Band Radar in Kyoto


Report from Kyoto:

On July 4 the Kyoto Coalition against the US X-band Radar Base held a rally in central Kyoto, Japan.

The rally got larger participants than before. In fact, recent crackdown against the coalition expanded people’s concerns on the US base in Ukawa, Kyotango-city, where is located on northern part of Kyoto Prefecture.

People shared the latest situation there through the presentation from local activist in Ukawa, and then marched on central Kyoto.

The base is one of important parts of the global US Missile Defense (MD) network. On coming July 30 – August 1, the annual assembly of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space will be held in Kyoto. Many foreign peace activists will come to Kyoto to share the situation.

No to US base in Ukawa, Henoko and elsewhere!
