Free movie at Kapaa Neighborhood Center Craftroom, Sunday, Sept 4, 2 pm  

WHAT: "Sit-on Sea" tells how Okinawan fishermen and farmers try to block the building of a U.S. Military base on Oura Bay with a 600 day sit-in on the water.

This struggle inspired many in Okinawa. Oura Bay is a cultural, economic and spiritual resource for these people who live near the bay from Henoko village.

 This fight will remind everyone about the struggle against the Superferry, and against cultural desecration at Naue and in Wailua (Wailuanuiahoano). Talkstory will follow the movie and light refreshment will be served.
