SOS message from Minami Soma City Mayor

Minami Soma City is located inside the radius of 30km (18.6mi.) from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, where US government warned American citizens must evacuate out of 128.75km (80mi.) from the power plant.

Mr. Sakurai, the mayor of Minami Soma City, claims that people in the town are not getting supplies or neither transportation to evacuate, because the help is not coming in after Japanese government's evacuation warning.

There are still 20,000 people left in town, having no choice to leave or stay, as of March 24th, 2011, when this video was recorded.

He broadcasted himself on youtube, using subtitle in English to report what is actually going on inside the evacuation area in Japan, and to ask for direct help from the public, not the higher government.
I am still in shock he had to do this, because his town is not getting enough support from Japanese government after their own evacuation warning.
Are they going to be left behind? Are they just waiting for their last minute?
Don't they have the choice and the right to live?

Please share this video.
