NHK reported this afternoon that the Okinawa Defense Bureau resumed relocation work in Henoko at around 2 p.m. today, saying that since Okinawa Governor Onaga is set to thwart the construction, the conflict between the central and Okinawa governments is expected to intensify. The network said the relocation work had been suspended for about nine months, adding that about 200 people opposed to the relocation protested the resumption in front of the gate of Camp Schwab today. According to the network, the defense bureau will begin full-scale relocation work from the beginning of next year, including placing buoys in the ocean to mark the off-limits area and conducting drilling work for a seabed survey.
