about

After my recent trip to Okinawa with Veterans For Peace I have had time to reflect on the beauty of this island and its people, their power and determination is unbelievable. In the face of overwhelming odds through coordinated and consistent actions the resistance has been able to slow down the ongoing destruction of Henoko Bay for 17 years!! Too Many Americans do not even know where Okinawa is or that it has dozens of bases on its tiny land mass, not to mention that the people have decidedly voted to remove them all and been ignored by both Japan and the United States. Okinawa is occupied land. American bases on Okinawa is evidence of America's imperialist nature and violates international environmental protections designed to protect our planet's natural resources.

lyrics

Verse
Long Before America was born This became the ryukyu nation
Predating by more than 400 years imperialist japanese annexation
Then US offensives came to fight and kill and this I land was taken
In the battle of Okinawa away from the country of the rising sun
Now Busting big guns is still done often makes civilians anxious
The situations simply one of ethnic oppression let's just face it
For the seven generations coming their views and imaginations
And all the lives unnecessarily taken opposing these occupations
Chorus
NUCHI du takara Nuchi du takara
No new Futenma Henoko Bay feeds us
Nuchi du takara Nuchi du takara
Any means you measure Okinawans are together
Nuchi du takara Nuchi du takara
All life is a treasure All life is precious
Nuchi du takara Nuchi du takara
Shut the bases down forever Shut the bases down forever
Verse
Its a simple matter of Human rights over humiliation hence the
Daily demonstrations and colorful cloth placements
The power and peace represented through the perseverance
In the push back against The rampant militarization
From the northern training area down past camp Hansen
For All the noise and harassment and Ospreys crashing
The Illegal land grabs an American embarrassment
And the 12 year old raped in 9 - 5 with no answer
Chorus 1x
Verse
Yeah I was stationed at camp Schwab in '95 and
I remember our presence impeded a normal life
i mean On the island Marines relax by fucking wilding
when Drinking and fighting iwas our way of socializing
So now I work towards vocalizing the way I feel properly
Now that I am no longer government property
I hope and pray it's not impolite of me to say this
I'm truly Sorry for my service ...
it meant your freedom waited
Chorus 2x
