Brown-bag Discussion: Closing Okinawa Bases
January 14, 2010 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The new Japanese government is pushing back against Washington’s plans for a new military base in Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture in Japan. This is a golden opportunity to radically shrink the U.S. military footprint on the island. But we only have a brief window during which to take advantage of this political opportunity.
Ms. Abe Tomoko and Mr. Hattori Ryoichi, as well as policy staff members of the party, will discuss the political situation in Japan and the strategies for closing down the U.S. Marine Corps Futenma Air Station and blocking a new base to be constructed in Henoko in Okinawa.
