USA returns the land of Japan amid widespread protests
The us military will give 9909 acres (4,000 hectares) of land in Okinawa Japan on Thursday. The process goes as the largest return, the United States occupied the land since 1972.

In the framework of the Treaty of mutual cooperation and security between the two countries, the United States granted the right to certain defence installations. In exchange for land, the Japanese government has built several new helipads for the U.S. military on its southern island of Okinawa.

However, the land transfer did not calm the anger of the activists, who have already campaigned for decades to remove the US base from Okinawa. "We feel cheated," said Takashi Kishimoto, a representative from the anti-us bases activist groups in Okinawa. "From our point of view, Okinawa is host to 74 percent of U.S. military bases in Japan. The return of this land reduces the area to 71%, "he said.

The land has several buildings and roads, and is home to several species of animals under threat. Partial transfer 9,909 acres this area is part of a larger plan to return the facilities South of Kadena and Futenma base in the future. The United States occupied Okinawa until 1972.

Transmission reduces the amount of controlled U.S. lands on Okinawa on 17%, according to the American military. However, some argue that the construction of helipads in exchange for the land fuels the mood of Okinawa against the U.S. military base.

"The problem is that these helipads were built too close to homes, and they focus on the deployment of aircraft MV-22 Osprey, which are a threat to the local population and the environment," said political analyst from the University of London Maki Kimura.

Just last week, the MV-22 Osprey made an emergency landing in the sea southwest of Okinawa, causing concern among residents. As part of the deal with Japan after world war II, the United States have the right to have 26 thousand troops and several bases in Okinawa.
