Okinawa Times and Ryukyu Shimpo highlighted a New Year’s message to prefectural government officials on Thursday from Okinawa Governor Onaga in which he reiterated his resolve to derail the existing Futenma relocation plan by saying: “It is absolutely impermissible for the central government to move forward with the FRF construction in the absence of the Okinawan people’s understanding…. I will be employing all available tools and resources not to allow the construction of a new base in Henoko. I will do my best to deliver on my campaign pledges to close and remove MCAS Futenma and not allow the deployment of the Ospreys.”
