Kuyoonaara(Hello)

I appreciate for Your Excellency Francisco Carrion-Mena,Chairperson of the Special Committee of 24,members of the Special Committee on Decolonization to give me the opportunity to speak before your Cimmittee.


1.Introduction

I am Dr.Yasukatsu Matsushima.an Okinawan.I was born and raised on Okinawa.Okinawa consists of 160 islands in the EastAsia Sea surrounded by Japan, Taiwan, China, Philippines and its population is about 1.4million.
I will appeal that the necessity of demilitarization of Guam from the perspective of Okinawa because the militarization of Guam and Okinawa has been linked strongly by US and Japanese Governments.


2.The Brief History of How Guam and Okinawa Share the Colonization

The militarization of Guam is linked with the building of new bases onOkinawa and the
moving of 8,522 US Marines,9,000 their dependents from Okinawa to Guam.Japanese Government has paid public funds to make new bases on Guam and its Self-Defense Forces has been training with US Forces on Guam.Why Guam and Okinawa is related militarily by US and Japanese Governments?We should understand the historical background of the colonization of Guam and Okinawa.

As Guam has been controlled by Spain,US,Japan and now US,Okinawa has been under the control of Japan,US and now Japan and US.

In1879,Japanese Government annexed Ryukyu Kingdom with its military invasion and started to rule Okinawa as its colony.The Japanese Government has imposed colonialist policies, prohibiting the Okinawan language in school.Also in Guam, Chamorros had been forced to speak English in school until 1950s. It can be called a cultural genocide.

In 1945,Japanese Government had used Okinawa as a battle ground.The number of the Okinawan fatalities reached around 150 thousand.In1941,immediately after Pearl Harbor, Japanese Forces occupied and controlled Guam until 1944.Many Chamorros had been massacred,killed by the Japanese soldiers and destroyed land of Guam thoroughly.Japanese Government has not done the war reparations for Chamorros until now.

During Pacific War, in Guam a lot of lands of Chamorros had been deprived by US Government to make military bases.Okinawa had been directly under the control of US Military Government. Many lands of Okinawans were taken by US Government with weapons.
In 1950s,US Marine Bases had been moved from Japanese Main Islands to Okinawa.Now US Marines will move to Guam.

In 1962,following the United Nations Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples,the Ryukyu Legislature passed a resolution,stating that the US rule over Okinawa violated the principles of self-determination and non-expansion of territories prescribed in the UN Charter.This resolution was sent to all 104member States of the UN at that time.
