(In front of the Gate)
Several tens of people resumed the sit-in from 8:30am, but were removed by the riot police. For all day long, we demonstrated carrying placards in the face of a line of trucks loaded with the landfill material. Three times a day, the total of 254 truckloads were delivered.

Trucks came and went into the gate continuously as if trying to recover the yesterday’s delivery shortage. A total of 683 truckloads soil and sand was shipped out by 3 carrier boats. Several tens of us called out aloud to the truck drivers for all day long, “Do not cooperate in dumping soil and sand!” and “Do not destroy the sea!”.

Two boats and 10 canoes went out on the sea for protest demonstration. They tried to demonstrate near the carrier boats docked at K9, but were blocked by the Marine Guards. It was confirmed that 15 truckloads of soil and sand were dumped into the sea.
