Okinawa Times claimed in a front-page story that Okinawa Governor Onaga has informally decided to take part in a rally in protest of the FRF construction to be held in front of Camp Schwab this Saturday with the goal of highlighting his “solidarity” with base opponents and local residents. This will be the first time for him to attend this type of event in the Henoko district. Given that the governor has not been able to come up with concrete measures to stop the ongoing sea-based construction work, the paper said Onaga is hopeful that his participation will help reignite momentum against Futenma relocation. .
