Former softball team manager keeps memories of quake disaster survivors alive

“We don’t want anything. We just want you to not forget us,” he said. The words brought tears to Utsugi’s eyes. For Utsugi, who had participated in a competition in Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture, after the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the disaster-stricken region was also a place of memories.

Says Utsugi, “People tend to forget things. They may forget the disaster victims they helped and their feelings toward the disaster-stricken areas before they have finished recovering.” To stop that, Utsugi holds over 100 talks a year, telling people about her meeting with the man.

[Another step to discharge contaminated water to the sea] Tepco to make a trial run of ALPS

http://fukushima-diary.com/2013/02/another-step-to-discharge-contaminated-water-to-the-sea-tepco-to-make-a-trial-run-of-alps/

Tepco plans to discharge contaminated water to the sea.
In order to justify themselves to discharge retained water, they are building the new water purifying facility called ALPS, which is to remove 62 sorts of radionuclide.

On 2/21/2013, NRA admitted Tepco to make a trial run of ALPS.

It doesn’t remove radioactive water Tritium, and actual Fukushima worker concerns about the potential problems in its starting time.

(cf, Fukushima worker doubts the reliability of the new water purifying facility ALPS [URL])

However, none of the preventive measures are suggested.

Please do away with all nuclear power as soon as possible.
