Many of you have probably already heard about the new Peace Boat
Initiative US for Okinawa. In solidarity with their event on Jan 31st to gather support for a no-base Okinawa, there will be a similar event in Kyoto on the 30th with Kyoto Action.
Kyoto Action is a group of people living in Kyoto campaigning to close
down Futenma Air Force Base and stop the construction of a new U.S.
military base at Heneko in Okinawa. The group meets every
Saturday, same place, same time, to show their opposition to U.S.
military base constructions in Okinawa. On January 30th, in
solidarity, Kyoto Action will also be distributing information about
Peace Boat’s new initiative, US for Okinawa “Peace Action Network.”
INFO IN ENGLISH HERE.
It will be a good chance to meet other activists in Kyoto that are
working on the base issue, which is directly liked with the
preservation of biodiversity. If you’d like more information, let me
know:) It would be great if some of you could come! We’ll be meeting from 5-630 at the Sanjo-Kawaramachi Arcade.
