US OUT OF THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION! NO TO THE US “PIVOT” TO ASIA!

US OUT OF THE ASIA-PACIFIC REGION! NO TO THE US “PIVOT” TO ASIA!

Statement of US-based Asian-Pacific Islanders and
Supporters of Peace

BAYAN USA, Notudol, CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities

April 7, 2014

We, Asian Pacific Islanders and peace-loving people in the US, denounce the US government’s strategic plan to increase economic, political, and military intervention in the Asia-Pacific region, as part of the so-called “US Pivot to Asia and the Pacific”. The said pivot aims to expand and consolidate long-running US hegemony over the region, as well as quell peoples struggles for social and national liberation across the Asia-Pacific region that have historically frustrated the interests of US empire.

We call for protests in April 2014, when US President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, and the Philippines to further consolidate key allies in the region in line with its strategic economic and geopolitical agenda.

We stand with the peoples of the Asia-Pacific region who for decades have been struggling for self-determination and for genuine sovereignty amidst decades of US-led neoliberal economic policies in the region.

Speaking to a gathering of Pacific islander leaders in the Cook Islands earlier in 2012, State Secretary Hillary Clinton reaffirmed U.S. resolve to intensify its presence in the Asia Pacific region - “This is a vast and dynamic region – a key driver of global economics and politics.  That’s why I have said that the 21st century will be ‘America’s Pacific century.’” (August 31, 2012) This was echoed by Defense Secretary Panetta on his tour of the region the following week - “The United States recognizes that the Asia-Pacific region is becoming more important in our economic and diplomatic and security interests.”

U.S. determination to increase its projection of power in Asia is also reflected in the Defense Department’s 2012 Strategic Guidance, which outlines plans to distribute flexible, rotational troop deployments throughout the Asia Pacific region to ensure U.S. naval control of trade routes from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific.  The White House, the Defense Department, and the State Department have all pledged to protect its capacity for power projection in Asia from any future budget cuts.

For last 14 years, Nodutdol has been consistently working on peace, justice, reconciliation work both at home and in motherland.  The work is always hard - as for everyone else - but we at Nodutdol would like to take this moment to appreciate support and love we have received from you all. 

Without you all, we wouldn’t be there right now.  So, come and celebrate with us the last 14 years of hard struggle, experience and wisdom we have accumulated, and of course, the youth and the fun our community inherently has.

You can buy your tickets now @ http://bit.ly/R3gvEn
