Disappointed by discrimination against those from Fukushima and feel like hiding I am from there

(by Kieko Takeda(57) from Minami Soma City, Fukushima Prefecture at a city gymnasium in Niigata Prefecture)
I heard that the people from Fukushima prefecture who evacuated to other areas are being bullied or discriminated against. I am so disappointed to hear that. Anybody could face the same situation as long as there are nuclear power plants throughout Japan. When I walk on the street, I feel like hiding the fact that I am from Fukushima.
