Free Rapa Nui Day


OCNC (Oceania Coalition of Northern California); a Pacific Islander social justice organization based in the Bay Area, California, is a multi-generational organization comprised of Pacific Islander community leaders, community activists and community members representing Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia.
We invite you to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Rapa Nui and join us for the "Free Rapa Nui Day of Action." The program for the day will include a rally and demonstration against the Chilean government’s illegal occupation and evictions of the indigenous peoples of Rapa Nui from their ancestral homelands. Furthermore, we are also standing up against the Chilean government’s heinous use of violence and human rights violations against unarmed families and communities in Rapa Nui. We hope to raise awareness on these issues and we petition the Chilean government to come to a peaceful resolution.

Beyond the Fence

The weekly radio show Beyond the Fence on KPRG 89.3 is a great source of information on Guam's current military buildup, but also Guam's history of militarization and the struggles which are taking place to decolonize the island.

If you want to listen to the show live, it is aired every Friday at noon, right after Democracy Now! Each episode is archived and can be downloaded for free at this link.
