Okinawa Governor Nakaima & Mayors Hand U.S. Military Base Closure/No New Base Construction Request to Japanese PM Kan
February 12, 2011 by CTB Team
On Feb. 8, Governor Nakaima and a group of Okinawan mayors handed a request to Naoto Kan, asking the Japanese prime minister to move the US Marine Air Station Futenma off the island and to cancel the plan for a new "replacement" mega-base in Henoko, an environmentally sensitive area on the island. The mayors included Mayor Susumu Inamine of Nago City, Mayor Takeshi Asato of Ginowan City, and 9 other mayors from base-hosting communities. Their request, the first formal request of 2011, follows a 15-year sit-in protest at Henoko; a 3-year protest at Takae in Yanbaru Forest; and numerous statements, plebiscites, resolutions, elections, and annual mass protest rallies across Okinawa — all demanding the closure of Futenma and the cancellation of the proposal of a new U.S. base at Henoko.
