Today was a bad day in Okinawa, because the start of a new portion of the landfill of the bay at Henoko has started. This is a continued violation of the Okinawan people, and an environmental tragedy. It is clear that neither the Japan government nor the U.S. government has any respect for Okinawans.
With that being said, I’m really glad that Governor of Okinawa Denny Tamaki took time out of his busy schedule to visit Hawaii. I know it was a sacrifice for him to make this trip, so I’m very appreciative. It was in important visit, because he helped to inspire more people in Hawaii to support Okinawa. He also showed appreciation for those who have already been supporting Okinawa. It’s really important that Uchinaanchu, and supporters, from all over the world continue to network and work together to support one another in protecting the land and sea of Uchinaa.
Thank you to Governor Tamaki for coming! Please come again soon!
