''In the early 1970s, farmers, workers, and students united under the slogan "We will not surrender our land!". This protest, known as the Narita or Sanrizuka Struggle, led to a series of fierce, bloody battles. a woman in peasant clothing covered all over with mud, in heavy rain, had tied herself to a thick post with steel wire. Riot police were remorselessly tearing her body from the post. forgetting to press my camera shutter, I yelled "Stop it!". Forty three years since have passed, and there is a plot of land that remains intact in the middle of the airport, which shows that the protest has been handed on to the next generation. With such deep attachment to the land and tenacity of ownership, I know the profound desire and great fortitude of human beings.'' - Tenmei Kanoh
