The Japanese and U.S. government are destroying the ocean in order to make a new U.S. Marine Corps base. The name of this ocean region is Oura Bay. Here, Okinawan people have held continuous sit-ins to block construction trucks for almost 2000 days, led mostly by elderly war survivors fighting to protect the island and ocean.
Oura Bay is one of the most biodverse ocean regions on the planet. It is home to over 5300 species and 262 endangered species whose habitat will be destroyed with this base construction.
