The Stars & Stripes reports that the pending standup of I Corps’ forward headquarters in Japan is among the grievances that will have thousands of protesters at the gates of Camp Zama on Sunday.

That’s a few more than were down at the Port of Olympia.

The corps commander, Lt. Gen. Charles H. Jacoby, Jr., and much of the corps staff is headed to Japan in the next couple weeks for the annual Yama Sakura exercises with the Japan Defense Force. Among the items on the to-do list: formally opening the corps’ presence in Japan — at Zama — to begin planning the Corps headquarters’ eventual move there from Fort Lewis.
