Anti Base Activists’ Image Worries

Date Posted: 2000-05-19

Organizers of the peace demonstration who are planning to encircle Kadena Air Base with a human chain face an uphill battle in their endeavor. The biggest problem according to organizers is the unavailability of rental buses to carry the participants to the planned site.

Organizers say they need at least 400 buses, but at most only 200 are available. They also say they face an image problem.

Some organizers worry that the foreign media will think that instead of opposing the US military bases in the prefecture, the demonstrators are expressing support for the current Asian security arrangements.

Another worry is that if only a few people show up, the whole world will conclude that the forces opposing the bases are only a fringe element among the Okinawan public and have no popular support.
