＊Event Fee: Free (We welcome your generous donation!)
An abundant water resource and a beautiful forest with indigenous,
rare sorts of animals surround Takae District of Higashi Village in the mainland Okinawa.
Yet, since July 2007, when the US military and the Japanese Government began to expand and construct the military’s training sites, i.e., helipads that MV-22 Ospreys would land and take off,
the people there have continued nonviolent, sitting-in resistance to protect their humane lives, peaceful circumstances, and precious nature.
Due to a series of nationwide, successful screening of a documentary film,
A Target Village (2013), a bunch of people are getting to know why the people in Takae are protesting.
Our aims are: to raise people’s concern for the issues that
they (and, off course, we) are involved in; to protect humane lives of the people there;
and, if possible, to make a chance for you to visit there.
We would like to organize and continue an annual event with
talking sessions with Takae people, other programs that feature them, music, tasty appetizers, panel displays with details of the problem,
thereby to create a cozy sphere wherein you could definitely experience something
about Takae. Feel free to behave yourself in and around our event!
