Song: Peace For Okinawa

Writer: Rob Kajiwara

Lyrics:

We’re here to build a new base for us to use
We’re here to make a stand to remove you strangers from our land

We’re here to keep you safe from China, North Korea too
We know that’s just not true and who’s going to protect us from you

Peace for Okinawa
Please protect the akangwa
Peace for you
And peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

We’re here to help and we know what’s best for you
This is genocide, two-hundred thousand people died

We hear you but we know much better than you
What are they dying for, a pointless hopeless foreign war

Peace for Okinawa
Please keep safe my angwa
Peace for you
And peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

We’re here to help and we know what’s best for you
This is genocide, one-third of our friends and family died

We hear you but we know much better than you
What are they dying for, just keep us out of your endless wars

Peace for Okinawa
Please keep safe my angwa
Peace for you
And peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

Peace for Okinawa
Remember Takeshi Onaga
Peace for you
And peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

Peace for you
And peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

Okinawan Terms:

Akangwa: Okinawan word meaning ‘baby’ or ‘babies’

Angwa: Okinawan word meaning ‘sister or ‘sisters’

Takeshi Onaga: Okinawan governor who died tragically of cancer in 2018, giving his life to oppose the construction of the U.S. military base at Henoko, Okinawa that is destroying an ancient coral reef home to hundreds of rare and endangered species, including the Okinawa dugong. 

乌克兰战争,西方种族主义

因为乌克兰人是白人,西方和日本的自由主义者认为乌克兰人的生命比世界其他地区的人更重要,包括中国人、琉球人、韩国人等。所以,虽然西方(包括日本)在高声谴责乌克兰战争,但他们会乐于牺牲琉球人民来发动对中国或俄罗斯的战争。
BBC, CBS, NBC, The Telegraph, 许多其他西方主要媒体都对伊拉克、阿富汗和其他非西方国家等发表了非常种族主义的言论。他们只关心乌克兰,因为乌克兰是白人,而乌克兰政府是西方的盟友。#琉球独立恢复#
