Inhabitants of Henoko(Nago/Okinawa), who are against the boring reserch for constructing new U.S.base in Henoko, have started sitting in since 19th April.
Over a hundred people, including old men and women aged over 90, are carring out a sitting in demonstration all through the day, inside the Henoko fishing port.
In 1996, the Japanese and U.S. government made a decision to return the Futenma U.S. base to Japan, but instead of that, they determined to construct a new base in Henoko, by reclaiming a tract from the sea. Okinawa is the only area that Dugong lives in Japan. Dugong is in danger of extermination, and is designated as a natural monument of Japan. And ofcourse, this construction of U.S.base is killing not only Dugongs, but all nature of the earths' gift.
They say that, they will never give up the sitting in demonstration, until they stop the constructing of new U.S.base.
