Because of the pending typhoon, we did not expect any construction work to be carried out. However, deliveries were made as usual, 3 times a day, and amounted to over 50 truckloads.
In the Tent Village, the protestors were busy to take safety measures against the typhoon such as removing the roof sheets.

No delivery of earth and sand at the piers in Awa and in Shiokawa.

Okinawa Prefectural Government filed a new lawsuit against the central government claiming that “it is illegal for the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to repeal the permit cancellation made by Okinawa Prefectural Government”. This is the 8th lawsuit between the Central government and Prefectural Government regarding the Henoko Issue.
In July, Okinawa Prefectural Government sued the Okinawa Defense Bureau that it was illegal for the Bureau to assume the status of a private person to make an appeal under the Administrative Appeal Law.
Two cases of lawsuit are now going on.
