WWF Japan's Staement Protesting Against Helipad Construction

WWF Japan's report on the helipad construction, and
their statement (Japanese)


(English version)
"We demand an end to helipad construction in the US Armed Forces Northern Training Area"

WWF Japan
(World Wide Fund for Nature Japan)

WWF Japan has identified the forests of Yanbaru in Okinawa, where many endemic and rare species live, as an area whose protection should be prioritized. As one of the most important natural environments in the world, WWF Japan has already begun conservation activities in the area. The construction of new helipads in the US Marine Corps Northern Training Area will destroy Yanbaru’s natural environment and will threaten the peaceful livelihoods of the local residents, and so we strongly demand an end to their construction.

Chamoru solidarity with OKinawa

Hawai`i Okinawa Alliance received solidarity message from our friend from Chamorro in June, 2007.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We, the indigenous people of Guam, reach our arms out to you today as you gather in memory of this terrible battle. Today, as you stand against our increasingly militarized world, demand justice, shame the powerful with your morality, love deeply, you quicken us all. You who have thrown your bodies and rage and prayers at those who seek to put hope in the ground inspire us. We honor you. And we offer prayers for you, as we know how cold and stilling is the fear that has fallen - is falling - on our lands. We reach our arms out to you and we hold your faces in our hands.

In undying solidarity and love,

I Nasion Chamoru.
