We call upon the U.S. and Japanese governments to immediately stop
occupying and using Okinawan land for military purposes. No helipads,
no new bases, no moving of current bases! This endangers the lives of
everyone on the Islands. Return the land to the Okinawan people! ---
I am one of the workers who have fretted one's gizzard in the history of the hardship lasting for 65 years in Okinawan's postwar days.
It becomes the stage of the only ground battle in Japan, and people in Okinawa to which life under the base has been pressed after the war cannot be deserted as it is.
I remember strong resentment for the Japanese national administration prefecture that is subordinate to the United States at the same time as strongly protesting against the Afghan people slaughter by an American nation.
I want to do all things even that the security treaty abandonments and can be the base removals.
Dear President, Ambasssador, and citizens of the U.S.
Okinawa is not a military base.
We want you to look at Okinawa-Takae with your naked eyes, and listen to
We don't want any military facility, and there is no need ofit.
For the U.S. being the most powerful and influential state in the world, you
have a big responsibility to come up to an alternative solution for
peace making & peace keeping which should be no-military and no violent
Again, there is no need of military facility and military solution for
peace making & peace keeping because they only create another violence.
I am an Italian woman.
I love your beautiful country. This summer, I was in Takada, Niigata-ken as a social volunteer.
I want and feel the urge to keep peace and beauty all over our planet and I read your "Open Call" on this link on the web:
I wish you all the best with all my heart!
I tried to open the links to Okinawa matters, which are all in Japanese and
even if I don't understand a single word of it, the photos indicate that
the situation in Takae is so bad. I feel a sense of rage and helplessness
but I hold with so much respect and admiration for our friends
who continue to courageously resist despite the insurmountable difficulties they face.
