"Hands Around Kadena" protest demonstration
1987 or '88

Hands Around Kadena was a huge event involving hundreds of Okinawans
and probably many "outsiders" from the mainland who organized a demonstration
during which they converged on the highways surrounding Kadena Air Base. On
cue at a pre-determined hour they all joined hands and formed a human chain that
completely surrounded the air base. There were many spectators and police on hand.
