Regarding the Nov. 17 article “Fukushima evacuees’ housing units crumbling“: It is not acceptable that these people should be in shabby temporary housing so long after the start of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The responsibility to replace their property should have been Tepco’s since it was its nuclear plant that caused the evacuation, but the nuclear industry won’t take responsibility for their terrible mistakes. Maybe someone will get a fundraising campaign started to get permanent housing for these people.
