In this Friday, Nov. 30, 2012 photo, a local protester flashes an anti-Osprey placard at a gate of the U.S. Marine Corps Futenma Air Station in Ginowan, Okinawa, southwestern Japan. Okinawans are angry that Japan approved the deployment of 12 Osprey aircraft, which began in October, though the government has asked for additional assurances of the aircraft's safety. Washington said the Osprey is safe and is needed to ensure regional security. (AP Photo/Junji Kurokawa)
