I am writing to send a short message of solidarity for the Sit-in-on-the-sea on July 25th.
I have had the opportunity to visit Henoko several times in recent years and I always come away from my visits inspired by the many people there resisting the construction of the new base. There are many reasons this base should not be built. It would endanger the environment, people’s health, and relationships of peace around Asia and the Pacific region. Most importantly, the people of Okinawa have said “no” to this base. You have said it loudly, and you have said it over and over again for two decades. Because you are on the side of peace, justice, democracy and healthy communities; it means that there are millions of people around the world that support you. The more people hear the story of what is going in Henoko, the more supporters you will have. As an American I know that it is very important for me to educate other Americans about what my government is trying to do in Henoko. I hope that, in that small way, I can lend solidarity to you all and support your righteous struggle.

Hi.I am Minhazur from Canada.I am against us bases in Okinawa.No U.S. Base at Henoko” or “Save the sea of Life.” I support Sea life At Henoko. Do not give up.

If more Americans knew about this terrible situation at Henoko they would be as outraged as I am. Okinawans have suffered a lot from the U.S. military presence, and this massive new base adds to the suffering with major environmental destruction. Meanwhile Americans suffer budget cuts for essential services while harmful and needless military spending on projects like this drains our treasury. I send solidarity to you and admiration for your struggle. Save Henoko’s bay!
