Chemicals from U.S. military bases run into nearby waters, poisoning them, which in turn poisons the people, animals, and environment.
The result is illness, disease, shortened lifespan, and death.
All Okinawans should be very concerned about this.
The U.S. Department of Defense denies these claims and ignores them, but studies suggest that these are real, and very dangerous. Public water levels in Okinawa around military bases are much, much higher than the norm.
