Don’t let Abe administration bully Okinawa!—Urget Action at Defense Ministry on Jan. 16

Some 120 people gathered at the Defense Ministry in Tokyo on Jan. 16 to protest against the government’s forcible reclamation of Henoko. People reported how protesters along with the local Okinawans were trying to stop transportation of construction materials and equipment. Violent crash between the protesters and the government was taking place as it was forcing to install the floating bridge. Some 20 canoes went over the floating bridge and protested, but 17 people were arrested by the Maritime Safety Agency and one boat was confiscated. People continued their sleepless sit-in at Camp Schwab in an attempt to stop the transportation of building materials.
 A young woman at the Defense Ministry expressed her anger against the Abe administration that refused to meet the new Okinawa Governor Onaga, who came to Tokyo three times to convey the voices of his people. She said that she could not oversee bullying of Okinawa by the government. (By Shinya)
