Article in Gara, a Basque news site:
I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Teruya Kantoku, a hero of Luchu (Okinawa). Mr. Teruya served Luchu for decades as a politician, lawyer, and independence restoration advocate, looking out for the well-being of Indigenous Luchuans / Uchinanchu. He helped many Luchuans to the best of his ability, including myself. I will always be grateful for Mr. Teruya personally rescuing me in February 2019 when I was wrongfully detained by the government of Japan. We will remember Mr. Teruya's inspiring words, "Uchinanchu will decide the future of Uchinaa!" And we will complete Mr. Teruya's work and restore Luchu's rightful independence.
Thank you, Mr. Teruya.
