Plant Your Ass in the Ground

The people block the construction entrance to US Camp Schwab Marine base in Okinawa where the Pentagon wants to build twin-runways out over pristine Oura Bay....coral reefs and endangered sea mammal dugong will be destroyed....the people do this every day for more than 450 days.

US Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy's message to Okinawa?  Get over it, the base will be built.

One of their slogans each morning at the 6:00 am protest is 'Plant your ass in the ground'.

Defend life - fight for the sacred - remember where you come from - what is the most important thing you can do with your life?
