Dancing after a Victory in Okinawa

VFP member Will Griffin reports from Okinawa:

The people of Takae/Okinawa defeated the construction workers by blocking them off and taking control of a bridge that leads to the US Marines Helipad site. 

Look at this amazing site! The people controlling their own lands! This bridge is covered with happy people celebrating their victory through song and dance joined with Veterans For Peace members Matthew Hoh, Tarak Kauff, Michael Hanes, Ken Mayers, Mike Hastie, and Douglas Lummis! 

It was such a great feeling to finally see the people take back what is rightfully theirs!
