People in Taiwan gather to ask DPP to ban imports of food products from Japan



A group of people in China's Taiwan region gathered on Wednesday to protest against the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities' collusion with the Japanese politicians, demanding that the DPP authorities ban all imports of nuclear-contaminated food and fishery products from Japan.

The protesters, consisting of dozens of political parties and organizations, pointed out that the DPP authorities have never protested against the Japanese government's nuclear-contaminated water discharge plan, which is not only a matter of betraying justice, but also sacrificing the Taiwan people's health for selfish political interests.

The Japanese government ignored the strong doubts and objections of the international community and its neighboring countries and unilaterally started releasing the Fukushima nuclear-contaminated water into the ocean, which is an outrageous act of ignoring its own violations of human rights, said the protesters.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report should not be used as a permission for Japan's discharge of nuclear-contaminated water into the ocean, and the report can't withstand the test of science and history, they shouted.

Japan started releasing nuclear-contaminated wastewater from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant into the Pacific Ocean on August 24, despite raging opposition from both at home and abroad.
