– Tokyo Governor to Tokyo Residents Who Protest Against Disaster Debris from Iwate: “Shut Up” (EX-SKF, Nov. 4, 2011):
Now that the radioactive disaster debris from Iwate Prefecture is a fait accompli and ready to be crushed and burned and buried, Shintaro Ishihara, irascible 79-year-old governor of Tokyo who almost single-handedly decided to do this mind-boggling project to “assist the recovery” of Iwate, mentioned the complaints that his government has received over the issue in the press conference on November 4 afternoon.
According to Fuji TV news clip on November 4, the governor said,
“Shut up” is all we need to say to these complaints.
誰がそれでどうするの? 力のあるところが手伝わなくちゃ、しょうがないじゃないですかWhat could one do? A powerful municipality [like Tokyo] must help [Iwate and other disaster-affected areas] because no one else can.
Fuji TV news also says that 3,000 complaints have been sent to the Tokyo Metropolitan government, over 90% of them protesting against the debris from disaster-affected areas to be transported, processed, crushed and burned and buried in Tokyo Bay.
