For access to Harumi and TOKYO2020 Organizing Committee:

On March 11, Bach, who was re-elected as IOC President, reportedly made the unrealistic statement that “there is no doubt that the Olympics will be held in July” in the midst of the declaration of a state of nuclear emergency with no prospect of settling the severe accident caused by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which was built solely for the consumption of electricity in Tokyo. At the same time, the Torch Relay to celebrate the TOKYO Olympic Games, which was bid with the lie and bribe that “the radioactivity is blocked and TOKYO is safe,” will be at J Village, which is a facility related to the TOKYO Electric Power Company and was the base of the convergence work of the severe accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of the TOKYO Electric Power Company. The Torch Relay is about to start from J-Village, which is a facility related to TOKYO Electric Power Co. More than 40,000 people are still evacuated, there is no way to return to the difficult-to-return areas, and even in the areas that have been lifted, there are many areas with high radiation doses, and workers are exposed to radiation every day due to the harsh convergence work, but no one in charge of the management of TOKYO Electric Power has taken responsibility for the accident. In addition, there are plans to release contaminated water into the Fukushima sea and to spread decontaminated soil and sand all over the country. Under these circumstances, what on earth should the Olympic aristocrats of the IOC and JOC be celebrating? This is what the JOC and the Organizing Committee should be doing, declaring that they will stop accepting the Tokyo Olympics. That is what the JOC and the Organizing Committee should do. There is no other job for you. The Tokyo metropolitan government should do its utmost to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, provide relief to the victims of the Fukushima nuclear accident, and support those whose lives and work have been affected by the COVID-19 disaster.
