Gregory Kulacki, a senior analyst and the China Project manager for the Global Security Program of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), took part on March 3 in a protest rally in front of Camp Schwab against the construction of a new offshore U.S. air base.

Kulacki who visited Okinawa to research the U.S. military base issues, stated that decisions on nuclear weapons and military bases are made by a small number of people. Kulacki insisted that although the people’s voices are ignored, it is important to keep raising them against the issues. He went on to explain how UCS has accomplished some success throughout its 40 year-history. Kulacki concluded by saying that it is important for Okinawan people to continue to oppose the new base construction.
