Prime Minister "CAN" in Okinawa on 17th 官首相17日沖縄入り

Prime Miniter Kan Naoto will be in Okinawa on the afternoon of Decmeber 17. According to the NHK news report in the morning, Kan will arrive on the afternoon, meet with Okinawa's governor Nakaima Hirokazu, and discuss economic issues and the issue of "Futenma relocation." He is going to apologize for DPJ's failure to meet the pledge of former Prime Minister Hatoyama's call for removing the Futenma base out of the prefecture, and will try to convince Okinawa to accept the US-Japan agreement on May 28 to build a "replacement base" in Henoko. There is no plan for Kan to visit Nago or to meet with local citizens of Nago.

There will be various protest activities, including the rally in front of the Prefectural Hall, and people are talking about bringing empty cans to make noises, punning on the word "can" and PM's name "Kan."
