Opposing the Gov. Onaga's Policy
Moriyuki Teruya
Deputy Chairman of Okinawa LDP
Satoru Nakamura
Representative of Okinawa Counter Offensive Movement
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in Japanese with English interpretation

 The construction of a new U.S. Marine airbase at Henoko in Okinawa continues to be a highly divisive issue. While public opinion polls reveal that a strong majority of Okinawans support incumbent Governor Takeshi Onaga's stand against Henoko, this view does not represent a consensus. Voices in favor of base construction do exist in Okinawa, though they are not always heard in the international media.

 The FCCJ will host two speakers from Japan's southwestern prefecture who strongly oppose the policies adopted by Governor Onaga. They will argue that the Governor is providing a false account of the situation and the feelings of the people of Okinawa, and they even believe that Governor Onaga owes an apology for his resistance to the central government policies, in particular his recent presentation to the UN Human Rights Council.

 Teruyuki Moriya was born in Gushikawa (later merged into Uruma City) in 1956. He served as a Gushikawa city assemblyman from 1994 until 2004, and as an Okinawa Prefectural Assemblyman since 2004. Currently he is the LDP's deputy chairman in Okinawa.

 Satoru Nakamura was born in Naha City in 1964. He was a member of the Ground Self-Defense Forces from 1979 to 1991. After working for several firms, he started his own IT business in 2004. In recent years he has been contributing opinion to conservative publications such as the monthly Seiron.
