English version. I'm sorry if I have any problems with grammar, vocabulary, etc.
Tomorrow July 5th is the election day of the Governor of Tokyo.Even in Okinawa, I am worried about the political situation in Honshu.Even if it is said that the Okinawans are united regarding the base issue, members of the current LDP are cleverly sent in.It is shameful to call itself the LDP in Okinawa, but I am wondering why the members of the LDP are chosen. As I knew from the book by Chie Mikami introduced yesterday, five LDP candidates who fell in the single-seat constituency in 2014 when there was a problem of Henoko base construction, revived like a zombie due to the revival election of the proportional constituency. The mechanism was... All the candidates who fell in the constituency in Okinawa were the first in the proportional list of the Kyushu block, and all were revived. As the party's strategy, they run candidates who are expected to have a hard time in the single-seat constituency, and place them first in the roster of the proportional constituency. You can see the government's intention to send thier agents to Okinawa and build a base in Henoko.
Eight people were elected in Kyushu proportional constituency, and up to four of them were candidates for Okinawa.A strange system that can increase the number of Okinawan LDP politicians from outside to promote base policy. The ruling party made this.They are trying to expand their “base” by creating complex systems that are difficult to understand.
The Okinawa Defense Bureau, Ministry of Defense, should protect the citizens of the prefecture, but I'm surprised that they always ignore us at all. I wonder what defense they have for whom.
The other day, there was a fire that generated chlorine gas at Kadena Air Base, but it was reported hours after the accident. The local lawmaker complained to the Defense Bureau because it was too dangerous. This is strange.The Defense Department should complain to the US military first, investigate, and report to the locals. It's a "Japanese" defense station!
Okinawa must defend itself from the invaders of the US military and the LDP.There are nuclear warheads and zombies on such a small island. It is tough.
