LAF postcard

Living Along the Fenceline tells the stories of seven remarkable women who live alongside U.S. Military bases. They are teachers, organizers and healers, moved by love and respect for people and the land, and hope for the next generation. From San Antonio (Texas) to Vieques (Puerto Rico), Hawai’i, Guam, Okinawa, South Korea and the Philippines, their personal experiences of struggle, loss, and courage tell a wider story of communities working to transform the contamination, prostitution, violence and desecration of land and culture generated by US bases around the world. This film inspires our hope and action through the power of ordinary women to resist militarism and create genuine security on their own terms.
