Okinawa to hold huge prost rally against suspected murder by ex US marine

May 23, 2016 Ryukyu Shimpo

Regarding the recent arrest of a U.S. military employee on suspicion of disposing of a woman’s body, “All Okinawa Kaigi”, a community organization that aims to prevent the construction of a new base in Henoko, held an emergency meeting on May 22. The organization’s members decided to hold a protest rally in June.

They will do so in a bipartisan way. According to a key person involved, the rally is scheduled to be held on June 19. Considering that the rape of an Okinawan schoolgirl by US military personnel in 1995 sparked a huge anti-base rally, the organizers expect the same size protest. They will look for a venue accordingly
