Rally held to oppose expansion of Narita airport

Some 1,500 protesters gather in Narita on Oct. 11 to oppose the expansion of Narita airport, demanding the government scrap a plan to complete a second runway by the end of fiscal 2000. Koji Kitahara, the organizer of the rally, said, ''The government is poised to start construction on the runway by the end of the fall. We will make every effort to stop it.'' The government proposes constructing a 2,500-meter runway, which would parallel the existing 4,000-meter runway, at Japan's main international airport east of Tokyo.
