TBS reported on Wednesday evening that Jinshiro Motoyama, a 27-year-old activist and resident of Ginowan who started a campaign to collect 100,000 signatures to demand holding a referendum on the Henoko relocation issue, is on the second day of a hunger strike to demand that the five cities that have announced they will boycott the referendum revoke their decisions. He said that until they do so he will not eat anything and will only drink water. TBS noted that if the five cities boycott the referendum, 30% of Okinawan citizens will not be able to vote in it.
