Film Screening: Okinawa TV Presents Here in U.S.: Water is a Treasure
July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
In the Island of Okinawa, water is a treasure that sustains Okinawans’ life.
However, something wrong is happening to the water.
In 2016, a press conference was suddenly called by Okinawa Pref. government, informing that PFOS was detected in the water from the Chatan Water Purification Plant (CWPP) supplies 450,000 residents or one-third of the prefecture’s population.
It is said that it comes from U.S. military facilities.
The use of the two PFAS is prohibited by international treaties as a substance harmful to the human body.
Our investigating report team followed mothers who stood up for the sake of their children’s health.
This documentary film uncovers the U.S.-Japan Status of Forces Agreement, the underlying obstacle against this issue.
