Day 691 Japan plummeted to 53rd from 22nd last year in press freedom (hence, alternative media blogs)

For folks in the Aichi/Nagoya area, there are 2 protests here in Nagoya on Friday evenings, the first is from 6:00 – 7:00 pm in front of Chubu Electric Company in Sakae (just down the street from the Aichi Arts Center). The second is from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in front of the Kansai Electric Company in Takaoka, Exit #1.

Looks like it might rain tomorrow evening, so take an umbrella with you just in case.

Jiji: “Severe labor shortages” for Fukushima decontamination — “Fears over radiation exposure”

http://enenews.com/jiji-severe-labor-shortages-fukushima-decontamination-fears-radiation-exposure

Q: How to get workers up to FD1… Any ideas?
