About the Event:

“In June 2017, members of the O’ahu-based grassroots organization Women’s Voices, Women Speak attended the International Women’s Network Against Militarism Conference in Naha, Okinawa. Hosted by the group Okinawan Women Against Military Violence, we visited many contested sites (Camp Schwab, Henoko/Oura Bay) and public memorial sites, for Irei no Hi (Lives lost in the Battle of Okinawa) and Rina Shimabukuro (raped and murdered by a former US Marine in 2016). In this presentation we will share some of our reflections on colonial violence and women-led healing.”
