Peoples of the Pacific---Confronting Militarization, Resource Theft, Globalization and America's "Pacific Pivot"

As militarization and corporate globalization rapidly advance in the Pacific, we urgently need deep collaboration and dialog with, and among Pacific peoples. They are being directly confronted by the expressionist drives of the world's most dominant powers [U.S., China, Russia, as well as Indonesia and Japan] all seeking economic and political control of the Pacific territories.

Resource battles, giant trade agreements, and rapidly acceleratingpreparations for wars across the region, are threathening the lands, environments, rights, cultures and sovereignties of all Pacific nations and Indigenous peoples. As the3 saying goes, "When elephants battle, the ants are crushed." New resiatance is required.
