ABC Australia takes a look at local resentment of the US military presence in Okinawa.

This valuable archive looks back over the strained relationship between the two groups in this Southern Japanese island. Many Okinawans resent the US army presence and the pollution. The governor complains: “We cannot use our own land. We cannot use our own sky.”
