Okinawans are being left to fight their own battles in these cases, as Japan stands and watches. It seems that the Japanese government will not get involved in U.S. military injustices, even if it is a danger to the lives of the Okinawa people. However, the Japanese love and fully support Okinawa’s eisaa, awamori, haari, and other “happy, happy” events. Where’s the love? Call your representitives and Japan Consulate nearest you. Or better yet, start a petition. Here in Hawai`i, shouldn’t HUOA be supporting some kind of effort to help the Okinawans in this struggle?
