Fuji TV reported on Monday evening that a signature campaign to stop the landfill work in Henoko before the referendum on Feb. 24, 2019 has gathered more than 75,000 signatures in 10 days and is rapidly approaching the requirement of 100,000 signatures in 30 days for the White House to consider the issue and respond within 60 days. The campaign was launched on the White House’s “We the People” website on Dec. 8 by Rob Kajiwara, a fourth generation Japanese living in Hawaii. This website was created by the Obama administration to allow citizens to directly petition the White House to take action on issues that concern them.
