    Thank you very much for your photos of the protest meeting.
    I was there and felt the anger and sadness piled up for
    more than 60 years occupation of U.S. military. I also sympathize pilots of Osprey which has six defects originate
    in its structure. The U.S. government disregards both of
    life of Okinawan people and the soliders.
