Queen guitarist Brian May takes on US military over Okinawa base


Brian May, the guitarist with the legendary British rock band Queen, has waded into the controversy surrounding US troops in Okinawa by using Twitter to call for people to sign a petition against the construction of a US military base in the prefecture.

In a post on the social media site on Monday headlined “URGENT!!! URGENT!!!”, May re-tweeted a message from activist Rob Kajiwara and urged, “Please sign this petition to save a beautiful coral reef and irreplaceable eco-system, threatened by the US extending an airbase.”
