On the morning of September 22, the Kadena Town Council held a session at which they unanimously adopted a resolution and statement of protest against the parachute drop training carried out on the 21st at the U.S. Kadena Air Base.

The Council also called for the abolishment of the exceptional use of Kadena Base clause confirmed at the SACO agreement in 2007.

 

In the resolution and statement of protest, the Council spoke out against the training carried out in April and May this year and a schedule of training in June.

“If the training becomes normalized, it would go against the idea of reducing the base burden and would obviously lead to strengthening the base function.”

 

Kadena Town Council members visited the Okinawa Defense Bureau to make their appeal on the afternoon of the 22nd.
