Abolish Foreign Military Bases

Peace Boat is very committed to the issue of the abolition of foreign military bases. In Japan, it is a key supporter of US for Okinawa, a peace action network based in Tokyo formed by citizens from US, Japan and elsewhere living in Japan who are concerned about the presence of US bases in Okinawa and the danger that the US Futenma Air Base poses to the people of Okinawa. At the international level, Peace Boat held a conference in Ecuador on the issue in 2009.
