The Wind from Okinawa Arrives in the U.K.


Henoko Activists Reverend Kamoshita Shonin and Sarasa Aihara are now in the U.K. for a two week European speaking tour, organised by VCNV. They will be talking about the protests in Okinawa against the 32 U.S. military bases which currently occupies 20% the island. Marines carry out dangerous military training exercises on a daily bases in built up urban areas, as well as opening new bases and helipads which cause damage to the environment, wildlife, and distress to local people. This is a unique opportunity to hear from core activists who visit the base everyday and are part of organising resistance.
