Hegemonic Battles for Pacific Domination:

Vs. Pacific Peoples
WALDEN BELLO: Philippines Legislature
JOSEPH GERSON: American Friends Service

JOHN M. MILLER: East Timor and Indonesia Action
Network (ETAN)
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 expansionist 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 Pacific
territories. Resource battles, giant trade agreements, and rapidly accelerating preparations for wars across the region, are threatening the lands, environment, rights, cultures and
sovereignties of all Pacific nations and Indigenous peoples. As the saying goes, “When elephants battle, the ants are crushed.” New resistance is required.
