(In front of the Gate)
No delivery by trucks today. The number of participants maxed to 275 including approximately 170 members from the Youth Division of All Japan Prefectural and Municipal Workers’ Union. The picture shows a US military vehicle with firearms. Loaded with explosives?
(Protest in front of Ryukyu Cement Pier)
From 7:00am, several tens of people were by the entrance to the Pier, but no delivery by trucks was made.
(On the sea)
Yesterday, we monitored the movement of the carrier boats that appeared offshore in Ohura Bay, but they sat anchored.
(A US Soldier Deserted)
A newspaper report yesterday said that a US soldier with a gun deserted a US military base in Okinawa. On the same day, the US military caught him walking in a residential area. Until Okinawa Times made an inquiry to the US military on the 7th, the US military had not informed the incident to Okinawa Defense Bureau nor to the near municipalities. It is not exaggeration to say that the US military based in Okinawa operates under colonialism and ignores human rights including the right to lead a safe life.
