Fukushima “voluntary evacuees” press conference MC’d by Ian

Posted on January 17, 2017


Today Ian MC’d the press conference “Fukushima Voluntary Evacuees on Verge of Losing Homes” at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan (FCCJ).  He shared his impressions and several episodes from the press conference on the DocumentingIan Blog, including when one mother shared an emotional account of Fukushima children being bullied at their new school: when parents complained to administrators, they were told “you made the choice to evacuate- if your children are being bullied, that’s your fault”.
