Description:

For generations Indigenous peoples of the Pacific have endured the harmful effects of U.S. militarization and imperialism. The U.S. is further increasing its military presence in the Pacific with the intent of maintaining superiority over China and Russia. In this panel discussion Indigenous representatives of the Hawaiian, Mariana, and Luchu (Ryukyu) Islands respond to U.S. militarization and call attention to human rights violations occurring in their home islands.
