Suemi Nishihara represents many Okinawans who have felt they couldn’t speak out against the new base, because they work on one of the other bases. 

As she explains, there is a limit to what Okinawans, even those connected to the bases, will accept.

#SaveHenoko

"Some people might think, ‘why are you [opposing the new Henoko base] even though you work on base?" But I have to say it because you can really see that things are moving in a dangerous direction. Also, there are many elderly people and people who experienced war, who strongly oppose this, but can’t come here. It is really painful for them to hear about all this in the news. So those of us who can still move should come here (to the protest action)."

“Can the hungry go on a hunger strike? Non-violence is a piece of theatre. You need an audience. What can you do when you have no audience? People have the right to resist annihilation.”
- Arundhati Roy (via secretdiaryofapashtungirl)
“Poverty too, like feminism, is often framed as an identity problem. As though the poor had not been created by injustice but are a lost tribe who just happen to exist, and can be rescued in the short term by a system of grievance redressal (administered by NGOs on an individual, person-to-person basis), and whose long-term resurrection will come from Good Governance — under the regime of Global Corporate Capitalism, it goes without saying.”
— Arundhati Roy, Capitalism: A Ghost Story (via locusimperium)
“There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.”
— Arundhati Roy
