Over 80 trucks carrying building materials for the construction of a new US military base near Okinawa's Henoko entered the site amid protest, Friday.

Protesters demonstrated against the construction of the airbase, blockading an access road in an attempt to stop the transportation of building materials into the site.

Police evicted a sit-down demonstration by protesters, who have gathered for ongoing demonstrations against the construction of the new state of the art US airbase. Activists oppose potential noise pollution, and have expressed safety and environmental concerns connected with the relocation.
