300 Days of Demonstration

There's a place in Japan called Okinawa, and just off the coast of Okinawa live some of the last Dugong in Japan. Sadly this is where the US has decided to build a new airbase - despite the opposition of local residents who overwhelmingly rejected the proposal.

So for 300 days the locals have been resisting the construction - occupying the proposed site (offshore, on a coral reef) - it's the kind of thing that deserves anyone's support. Especially yours.
