Moral Arc of Universe Bends Towards Justice: Susumu Inamine, who vowed to protect Henoko,Wins Nago Mayoral Election

Kyodo News reports that Susumu Inamine, who opposes new military base construction that would destroy Henoko and Oura Bay, a biodiverse coral reef and last habitat of the critically endangered Okinawa dugong, won the mayoral race Sunday in Nago, Okinawa Prefecture.

His opposition and control over municipal functions would make it difficult for PM Hatoyama to allow the construction of an environmentally destructive proposed mega-base at Henoko.
