Audio: It’s the reality that Northern Japan is contaminated and radioactive material is constantly being spread elsewhere — “A really creepy, macabre feeling”

Fairewinds board member Chiho Kaneko from Iwate Prefecture discussing her recent trip to northeastern Japan: It’s the reality that Northern Japan, not just in Fukushima, Northern Japan is contaminated. That’s the reality, and people are transporting the contaminants whenever they travel elsewhere. They’re bringing with them. […]

So what’s happening is there’s a gradual and constant dispersing and spreading of radioactive materials, inadvertently. Nobody wants to do it, but we are doing it. That’s a really creepy, macabre feeling I had when I was in Japan.

In the same program…

Japan. Did the sense of values drift away with the disaster debris?

This, from EX-SKF at http://ex-skf.blogspot.jp/2013/02/news-collage-from-idiosyncratic-japan.html

News Collage from Idiosyncratic Japan

Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant seems to me like the only sane place remaining in Japan these days.

A town devastated by the tsunami two years agoembalms a pine tree.

An official in a city in Niigata Prefecture laughs at his colleague who gets caught in the heavy snow by saying “He can’t walk properly, because of radiation.” (His city is one of the few municipalities that are burning disaster debris.)

A 5th grader in Osaka jumps in front of an incoming train and kills himself because he doesn’t want his elementary school to merge with another school. “Please stop the merger, in exchange for this little life”, he writes in his last note.

The anti-nuclear group that organized the protests in front of the Prime Minister’s Official Residence every Friday last year (well, they are still doing it, though the attendance has dwindled) attends at a symposium ondefending Japan against China and Korea.

Same people who freaked out about thyroid cancer before are freaking out again about thyroid cancer, while hardly any of them protest against the circulation of contaminated food.

A 55-year-old elementary school teacher kicks an 11-year-old 5th grade boy in the lower abdomen, and the boy suffers injuries that take two weeks to heal. The police decides not to press charges, because the teacher says he is sorry.

Ms. Yoshiko Sakurai, who said “It’s the national government’s responsibility to say that up to 20 millisieverts/year is safe for adults, and 10 millisieverts/year is safe for children”, is one of peopleselected to the Central Council for Education under the Ministry of Education and Science.

All in about half a day of news collection that I did today.

“My message to Tepco is that if it wants nuclear to be reborn, it must demonstrate publicly it has changed its ways to restore trust.”

Naoshi Sato, 77, lives in Rikuzen Takata City, Iwate Prefecture. His neighbors call him “boss.” His entire community was affected by a once-in-a-millennium tsunami on March 11, 2011 that destroyed his home. His son, a member of the volunteer fire corps, was also swept away. But he refuses to leave his ruined house despite repeated calls from the town administration to evacuate. Rebuild my home! This is his dream.
