(In Front of the Gate)
Approximately 100 people gathered in front of the Gate, and 60 resumed the sit-in protest. Seven member of a medical services association who are specialized in caring the elderly watched over us across the road. They have given us their support for almost 4 years now. Whether a weather is hot or windy and cold, they watch over us, and we are grateful. They have taken care of countless cases of heat strokes and bruises. A male nurse spoke over a microphone and received large applause.
“When I was little, my family lived by Kadena base. We suffered from loud noise and always faced with a risk of accidents. I am married and have kids now, and I do not want my children to go through what I experienced. That is why I am here now!”
