Environmentalists Protest Ishigaki Airport Plan

Date Posted: 2001-03-30

Environmental protestors called the Ishigaki City mayor “abusive” at a meeting on Sunday to discuss controversial plans for a new airport on Kara Peak.

Mayor Ohhama said “I want you to understand the hardship we have borne for 20 years. I don`t want people like you to disturb our plan.”

The group replied “The reason why the citizens went through the hardship is not because of the protest movement but because of new airport plan, which ignores the environmental issue.” They added “what you said was abusive and we want you to withdraw it.”

The group of about 20 protestors had been taking part in a nationally organized rally in Shiraho, Ishigaki, the previous day, to oppose the new airport.
