Link to Tarak's photos of the protests.We will also show   a 13 minute film on this topic, titled:  Hiroji Yamashiro: a leader of the Okinawa movement against U.S. military bases.Okinawa

 "During our recent week in Okinawa the hundreds who blocked the construction gate at the US Marine base at Camp Schwab each day were mostly older people.  Many of them have memories of the terrible Battle of Okinawa where at least one-quarter of the civilian population died in 1945 when the US attacked the island and defeated the Japanese occupiers.  People there are deeply marked by WW II and fear another war as the Pentagon occupiers use Okinawa as an 'unsinkable aircraft carrier' aimed at China, North Korea and Russia. " from Veterans for Peace member, Bruce Gagnon's blog on the Okinawa protests. Information: 518-466-1192.
