Famed animation director Hayao Miyazaki will help lead a fund set up to oppose the relocation of a U.S. military base in Okinawa Prefecture, a source close to the fund said Friday.

The fund was set up by Okinawa residents on April 9 to collect funds for their campaign to halt the relocation of U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma from Ginowan to Henoko, a coastal district further north on the island. They want the base removed from Okinawa altogether.
