This paper was presented at the workshop In Whose Interests? The Future of the US Military in Asia, held at the East-West Center, February 20-22, 2003. As an initial review of how civil society groups have sought to affect their governments' policy of alliance with the United States, this working paper will form the basis of discussion for a cross-national study of how citizens in Asia view the presence of US forces within their society and the resources they have mobilized to affect policy change.
