Base Closure Movements :: From Okinawa to Italy

Activists all over the world connect through No-bases.net

DIY Foreign Policy Heroes banner

The United States has more than 800 bases on foreign soil. There’s a growing movement to make that number smaller. From Okinawans, who have protested the U.S. presence since the 1970s, to the Chagos people of Diego Garcia, fighting in court to return to their home on Diego Garcia, to Italians protesting the expansion of the Aviano airbase, to Czechs and Poles rising up against U.S. plans to site anti-missile facilities in those countries, people are organizing to send the U.S. military home. No-bases.net is an information clearinghouse, started to help protesters around the world connect and share information.
