» Namie town protest against Abe’s remark at Olympic committee

The Namie town assembly in Fukushima Prefecture passed a protest resolution against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sept. 20 for declaring the situation surrounding the radioactively contaminated water leaks at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant “under control.” It unanimously passed the protest resolution stating that there is a “serious problem” with Abe’s remarks as they “contradict reality.”

The prime minister made the controversial comments during Tokyo’s final presentation at the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s general meeting in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7, saying, “Some may have concerns about Fukushima. Let me assure you, the situation is under control.”
