Overseas Network Dec. 21, according to a new report in Ryukyu, Japan, the Japanese government has reclaimed land along the coast of the ancient border area of Okinawa Prefecture for a whole week.

On the 14th, the Japanese government began to invest sandy soil into the designated areas along the coast of Bino Ancient Area, reclaim the sea and land, and promote the relocation of the U.S. Army Futenma Base.

This has further expanded the protests in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Local citizens gathered for days at Sandy transportation sites, in front of U.S. base gates and at the seashore of Bianye ancient area to protest. Some radical citizens even stopped the construction work and were temporarily arrested by maritime security officers.

In addition, more than 100,000 Internet users have signed on the White House petition website, demanding that President Trump stop the matter. Okinawa Prefecture Governor Yucheng Danny also signed the petition, demanding immediate interruption of the construction of a new U.S. military base in the ancient border area.

On the 14th day of the reclamation project, Yucheng posted a video on Facebook saying that he was deeply distressed by the Japanese governments reclamation project for the new U.S. military base in the Gudapuwan area of Bino. Yucheng said that Dapu Bay is a rare and precious sea area in the world, breeding more than 5,000 species of organisms and the largest blue coral in the northern hemisphere. Nowadays, in order to build a new military base and destroy the precious ecological environment, the Japanese governments actions are unforgivable.

According to previous reports, the Japanese and American governments agreed in 1996 to move the U.S. Army Futenma Base in Yiyewan City, Okinawa County, to the ancient border area of Namo City, Okinawa County. For a long time, crimes, aircraft crashes, high-altitude crashes, noise harassment and other incidents of U.S. military personnel in Okinawa have occurred frequently. Okinawa people can not afford to be disturbed. They strongly oppose the relocation plan in the county, and call for the complete closure of the Futian base or relocation of the base outside the county.
