Massive Sunday Osprey demonstration postponed

Date Posted: 2012-08-03

A demonstration with many as 100,000 demonstrators expected to turn out Sunday at Ginowan City’s Kaihin Park to voice their opposition to the stationing of MV-22 Osprey aircraft on Okinawa was postponed because of the approaching typhoon.

Former Prefecture governors Masahide Ota and Keiichi Inamine were reportedly planning to participate in the Sunday afternoon demonstration at Kaihin Park.

Earlier, on July 22nd, there had been a demonstration called ‘Sandou demo’ on Kokusai Street, where young people walked through the streets wearing outlandish clothing and playing drums or maraca. More than 700 participated in the event, as the citizen voices grow louder against the Osprey.
