Petition to Drop All Charges Against Arrested Okinawa Anti-Bases Activists

As a citizen of the world and an advocate for peace and people’s human and democratic rights, I demand that all charges against Hiroji Yamashiro, and his co-defendants, Hiroshi Inaba and Atsuhiro Soeda, be dropped and all attempts to silence the people of Okinawa in their just quest to rid their homeland of the many U.S. military bases be stopped.

KYODO
NAHA, OKINAWA PREF. – The U.S. Marine Corps flew helicopters above an elementary school next to a U.S. air base in Okinawa on Thursday, despite having promised Japan it would try to avoid such flights after a window from a CH-53E chopper fell on the school grounds last month.

Japan’s Defense Ministry noticed three helicopters flying over the Futenma No. 2 Elementary School in the afternoon, prompting it to lodge a protest with the U.S. military. Students had been on the playground shortly before the flights taking part in an evacuation drill in response to the falling window incident, which occurred on Dec. 13.

“It’s deplorable that this has happened even though we’ve requested firmly that the U.S. not fly above the school,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at a press conference in Tokyo.

Hey U.S. Marine Corps in Okinawa, You Forgot Something…

“What makes the green grass grow? Blood, blood, blood makes the green grass grow.”

This is a popular phrase in the military. Many of us had to scream it at the top of our lungs when our drill instructors ordered us to show our ‘war face’.

No, its not water or a clean environment that helps the green grass grow. It is violence, war, and militarism that makes the green grass grow according to our beloved armed forces. A few friends of mine made a visit to the pristine Yanbaru Forest on Okinawa Island, the same area where the USMC conducts military training exercises. To even begin to think that the military will leave no trace of them behind is a joke. With 800 bases around the world, the Pentagon is the largest polluter in the world today.

Metal window frame from U.S. military helicopter falls on elementary school grounds in Okinawa

Metal window frame from U.S. military helicopter falls on elementary school grounds in Okinawa (the japan times)

KYODO
Dec 13, 2017

NAHA, OKINAWA PREF. – A metal window frame fell off a U.S. military transport helicopter and onto the grounds of an elementary school in Ginowan, Okinawa Prefecture, on Wednesday, triggering renewed anger and concerns in the municipality where a key U.S. air base is located.

A student was slightly injured by small stones that were scattered by the impact when the object fell on the playground of the school, located just next to U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma. About 60 students were there at the time.

Brig. Gen. Paul Rock, commander of Marine Corps Installations Pacific and Camp Butler, met and apologized to Okinawa Vice Gov. Moritake Tomikawa later in the day.

He also said flight operations of the helicopters of the same type at Futenma had been suspended as of Wednesday afternoon.

“The safety of children should come first. It is unforgivable that it dropped in the middle of the playground,” Okinawa Gov. Takeshi Onaga told reporters as he visited the school.
