Futaba citizens go to the Diet Never allow re-start!

HORIKIRI Satomi writes: I got a mail from IDOGAWA Katsutaka, the former Mayor of Futabacho: Futaba citizens will go to the Diet on a hired bus. We will have a meeting at the Upper House Diet Members’ Building at 1 pm on June 20. The citizens will vent their grievances at the Diet. Citizens living in the shelter at Kisai High School in Saitama, and in other areas in Fukushima and Ibaraki Prefectures will participate in the action..”
So, I had to go. The meeting room at the Diet Members’ Building was packed with Futaba citizens and supporters. Idogawa had said he wanted to take the citizens to the Diet to demonstrate and to TEPCO headquarters to sit-in, to show the Diet that the people have the power to act. He started the meeting saying, ”I could not do this while I was a Mayor. But now I am able to chair this meeting. Please vent your voices to the Diet Members”. (HORIKIRI Satomi)
