Protect Yanbaru Forest and Local Community from Helipad Construction

Forwarded from: Citizen’s Network for Biological Diversity in Okinawa

A great summery of the situation surrounding Takae since February 2011, and further background information on US bases in Okinawa.

Please utilize the contact list of authorities, including the local Okinawa Defense Bureau (ODB) that’s conducting the violent construction in Takae every day. A phone call to ODB I made recently suggested that they are becoming even more one-sided and stubborn defending themselves and criticizing the protesters. The representative that I spoke to clearly showed me his ignorance on the situation and indifference to the local residents; he insisted (as if he was preaching me who is from outside Okinawa) that he never had problems living next to the US base. He certainly lives and works in a safe noise-proof building.
