On September 29th, a rally and protest will be held in Ginowan City near the convention center in Okinawa to protest the Japanese Governments latest attempt to wipe out Batle of Okinawa attrocities from the history books and say those things never happened. This issue is the second attempt by the Okinawans to preserve their history, as they lost the first round. It is the obligation of all shimanchu to suppport this movement since at least one of our family connections suffered during the war. for anyone not to support this means denying what happened at the hands of the Japanese. It is expected that over 50,000 will attend, supported by the various city mayors.
