» Supporters are being sought to sit in the court proceedings for the “Supporo Lawsuit”

Supporters are being sought to sit in on court proceedings for the “Sapporo lawsuit” brought against TEPCO by over 200 Fukushima nuclear crisis evacuees now living in Hokkaido.

The call for support is being issued by one of the plaintiffs, Takako Shishido, 41, who said that some of the courtroom’s 80 seats occasionally go unclaimed. “The act of sitting together with us defendants in order to fill the courtroom would be an incredibly supportive gesture for evacuees,” commented Shishido, who now resides in Sapporo’s Atsubetsu Ward.
