Film depicts Okinawans' fight against Ospreys | The Japan Times

“The Targeted Village,” a documentary on the fight by Okinawa residents against the deployment of MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor transport aircraft at the Futenma air base, is showing in Tokyo theaters.

Released Saturday, the 91-minute film is based on an award-winning TV program produced by Chie Mikami for an Okinawa station in 2012.

It focuses on the residents of Takae, a community in northern Okinawa Island, who speak of feeling “targeted” by the U.S. military and its plan to build six heliports in the surrounding area.

Comment: Sorry, I just got tired of using the same osprey and protest pictures so I used this one. It's a caricature of an endangered species that makes its home in the Marines Northern Training Area and a symbol of Okinawa.
