Supreme Court denies bail to leading anti-base activist in Okinawa; government accused of oppression
Mar 7, 2015
Last week, at the end of a report on the TBS newsmagazine show "Hodo Tokushu" about protests against the proposed U.S. Marine Corps base at Henoko in Okinawa, the show's host mentioned that in response to charges from local press that it had violently repelled sea-borne demonstrators, the Japan Coast Guard provided one statement for local journalists and another for mainland reporters. Tokyo-based newspeople were told that their Okinawan counterparts had reported "wrong" information, but when responding to Okinawan media, the coast guard ignored these assertions.
