NHK reported this morning that it learned from the Okinawa Defense Bureau that it is mulling a plan to deliver materials for the reclamation work at Henoko by ship in order to accelerate the work, saying, however, that this is likely to trigger strong opposition from local protestors. The network said while the bureau began seawall construction in April, many local protestors are blocking the street in front of Camp Schwab where materials are being delivered by truck. The network said the bureau is considering delivering a large volume of materials directly by sea in addition to the current land route.
