Historic Solidarity in Okinawa: NO! to New US Base!

Another great shot from a member of the great Japanese organization, Translators for Peace. She received it from a friend who attended the rally in Okinawa, and forwarded with her remarks:
For the first time in history, public officials in Okinawa were solidly united with the people. They helped distribute yellow ribbons of solidarity to people who could not attend it. Heads of all municipalities in Okinawa attended, even the governor.

I put on a yellow jacket with "Solidarity with Okinawa NO! to New US Base in Okinawa" written on the back and went around my neighbourhood, unable to attend any solidarity rally.
