RADIOACTIVE TOKYO, RESIGN AS HOST OF 2020 OLYMPICS
About this Petition
We, the undersigned, join Ambassador Mitsuhei Murata in calling for “an honorable retreat” for Japan, resigning the position of Host for the 2020 Olympic Games. Since Fukushima is already contaminating Tokyo, says Mr. Murata, bringing people there in large numbers for the games (and the workers building the facilities before that event) is immoral and unethical.
In Sept. 2013, the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) elected Tokyo as host city election for the 2020 games. They believed Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lie that, “the situation (at Fukushima Daiichi) is under control”.
Tokyo Electric Power Company’s (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi, the nuclear reactor complex that was damaged by the earthquake/tsunami of March 2011, continues to spew forth radioactivity today. Unfortunately, the site is nowhere near “under control”, and there is no guarantee it will be by 2020.
