Former Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama addressed me a message on October 23 in which he confirmed his opposition against the Tokyo Olympic Games that “aims at making FUKUSHIMA sink into oblivion”.
The media continue to refrain from informing the shocking decision.
The situation in Fukushima remains critical, as explained by Mr. Hiroaki Koide, most reliable nuclear expert, in his recent article published by the Heinrich B. Stiftung Foundation — https://hk.boell.org/sites/default/files/2020-10/perspectives-asia-no-9.pdf
This shocking information has given rise to severe criticism concerning the Tokyo Olympic Games from an ethical and moral point of view.
With warmest and highest regards,
