The Anti-Kaiju Wall (alternatively the Wall, Coastal Wall or the Wall of Life) is a massive manmade structure built with the intention of preventing the invasion of Kaiju beyond the Pacific Rim.
Wall of Life Program
The conception of the wall began as early as 2020. The assumption that no Kaiju would attack a wall bordering the coastline was the primary rationale behind supporting the wall over the Jaeger Program. The belief that the Jaeger Program would benefit the world in the long run was thought to be a hypothesis without a strong basis. The project and wall itself was dubbed the "Wall of Life Program".
Unwilling to put stock in the Jaeger Program any longer, the United Nations cut finances to the program and began focusing their efforts on constructing the wall so that it would be strong enough to prevent the Kaiju from reaching the rest of the world beyond the Pacific Rim.
Working environments around the wall were dismal, with work at the uppermost part of the wall being the most dangerous. Limited resources provided by rations were of little or no benefit to the workers.
The wall was proven a complete failure when the Category IV Kaiju Mutavore easily breached it at Sydney, Australia, putting the city on the verge of being ravaged by a Kaiju for the second time. Only the intervention by the Jaeger Striker Eureka in meeting and killing the beast saved the city.
This stark demonstration of the wall's ineffectiveness in defending against Kaiju attacks triggered a large negative reaction among the public. Workers on the Alaskan wall began to question the point of building it. Chuck Hansen, secondary pilot of Striker Eureka, stated to the public that the Jaegers were a better defense than the wall. Despite its obvious failure, politicians continued to lend their support to the project, leading to mass riots in cities around the Pacific Rim.
Pacific Rim: Uprising
The Wall Program had been disbanded after the success of Operation Pitfall.
The wall was constructed to stretch around most of North and Central America, as well as East and South Asia in a move to trap and isolate the Kaiju and the occupants of the Pan Pacific from the Atlantic Ocean. Known locations of the wall's construction were primarily in Los Angeles and Alaska; Anchorage, Sheldon Point, Sitka, and Nome.
