On February 11, a gathering, “Listen and tell Okinawa’s voices and thoughts, Ambassador Kennedy” was held in the public square in front of the Okinawa Prefectural Government Office. About 60 young people performed a flash mob with up-tempo music to send the message “Love and Peace.”

Masayuki Chinen, a junior grade student at Okinawa Christian University, said, “I started calling for participants three weeks ago. Young people gathered as individuals, not a group. It gave us a hope that we can do something together.”

They mainly called for participation on Internet sites such as Facebook and practiced for three hours over two days.

Fourteen students from Meio University in Nago took part. Chiharu Takikawa, a junior year student of the university was in charge of dance composition. “I focused on simple and sharp compositions which we could learn in a short time. We were able to create an opportunity to think and act for ourselves through the flash mob,” said she.
