Alex, Frenchman living in Tokyo: “All my videos regarding Fukushima have been cancelled from YouTube” — Not one left this morning

h/t thetruthaboutfukushima

UPDATE: […] His videos on the topic of Fukushima had been on average getting about 4-5000 views but suddenly yesterday after a video he recorded in French (vast majority have been in English) got to around 65,000 views and now all of his videos going back to March 12 are gone. I have been watching his videos since day 1 while in Japan and he was of a great comfort and source of information. His videos on this matter are an important part of history and it is quite odd and immoral that Youtube simply remove them all. […]

    No way … the Nuclear Mafia is onto him!

  • risabee risabee

    Are some of us independently archiving ENE? “Above my pay grade” alas.

    • arclight arclight

      ihope admin has it in hand…seems to get enenews back up and running quickly enough…the censorship probaly will come in the form of search restriction…and that hopefully, can be got around im sure…shame it keeps the numbers down viewing though…cut and paste the health advice and hard print it off, if the whole thing get silly the other info could get you into trouble, probaly…definately fells like 1984, wierd 🙁 love light and peace risabee

  • arclight arclight

    looks like censorship is getting worse…yesterday i commented on yhe blog exskf.. when i returned home to england yesterday i did a search on my yahoo browser and was unable to find it on the returns..heres the link by the way..
    driving through germany on saturday i questioned locals about the nuclear issues and it turns out even this soon to be nuclear free country has censorship on-going.
    also the weather in europe has been wild…from spain to norway…i saw many differnt types of clouds, the most sinister of which were the lower dark ones. these darker clouds gave torrential rainpour in very localised areas.(i read about there being a connection to heavier raindrops due to water molecule attachment to particulates.) i was riding a motorbike and got some of this water on my eye. this gave a very light burning in both eyes for a couple of hours (on and off). anyway my point is that the worst spring weather for holidays in europe is not being talked about either…
    and to round up my rant i will give you this link
    agood article exept for the typo of saying 20 reactors intead of 3 (i hope it was a typo). at least the author Dahr Jamail is on it, he has a twitter link at the bottom of the article..
    love light and peace people!

    • Flapdoodle Flapdoodle

      It was not a typo. Mr Gunderson stated it was the “equivalent of 20 nuclear reactor cores because of the fuel cores”… meaning the stored spent rods + the reactor cores would be the equivalent of 20 cores. However, I suspect it could be even higher, because his statement is based on what TEPCO admits to, and TEPCO has always minimalized..

      • arclight arclight

        thanks for the clarification

        • Discordian

          Though your observation about censorship is correct. I read that the same thing is happening with clips showing examples of police brutality. YouTube will be TheyTube completely before long.

      • Steven Steven

        Don’t forget the plutonium. Chernobyl didn’t have any. This is a whole new ball game.

    • Dahr Jamail is reliable.

      He “embedded” himself in Iraq during the second war and covered it on his own.


      In late 2003, angry at the failure of the U.S. media to accurately report on the realities of the war in Iraq for the Iraqi people, Dahr Jamail went to Iraq to report on the war himself. Jamail has spent a total of eight months in occupied Iraq as one of only a few independent U.S. journalists in the country. He has also reported from Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. His dispatches have been published in newspapers and magazines worldwide, and they can be read on his website (

      Dahr Jamail’s book, Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq, was published in late 2007 (Haymarket Books). Historian Howard Zinn said, “Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the cowardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation.”

  • moonkai

    this is really bad !! it is a shock to me. I never been very much a conspiracy theorist ! But this action by YT brought me back down to earth !! this is happening! The anti-nuclear war has officially started indeed … and I wish to be a part of it !!

    • sorry charlie

      THIS IS NOT A CONSPIRACY! A Conspiracy would imply that something is being done in secrecy. The Nuclear industry is sending out loud and clear messages about what they will not tolerate from us. We have to form a tight enormous group and stand up to them…..or we can sit back and watch the world go to hell.

      • Discordian

        You mean, we can sit back and NOT watch the world go to hell. It isn’t a question of the destination, but whether we will be “allowed” to know.

  • moonkai

    What is the back up plan in case Enenews gets somehow shut ?

    • arclight arclight

      facebook has an enenews page…

      • Discordian

        But facebook is hardly a reliable source. If that’s all that stands between enenews and shutdown, someone should compose the eulogy. Just my opinion.

  • risabee risabee

    A search on “cooper nuclear station” on google realtime suddenly yields nothing for the past hour — including ENE’s post. This with levees overtopped and tornado cells in the vicinity.

  • moonkai

    yes … hopefully Facebook will remain uncensored !

    • alasanon

      FB will clip your comments on Fukushima and related links thereto… I noticed that warning on many other sites and then it happened to me, too…very Stasi-like! >:/

  • Finch Finch

    Ha ha ha Facebook and uncensored!

  • moonkai

    It says thhere are other videos made from an Australian man in Tokyo on Fukushima , also got deleted !

  • risabee risabee

    Realtime watches facebook but I think, correct me if I’m wrong, enenews shows up there only when quoted by tweeters? Realtime is 99.9% tweets anyway. I’m seeing some decent fukushima traffic but the Calhoun/Cooper search is falling right off the radar, seems like.

  • arclight arclight

    just done a google search on the word fukushima..first pages only list main stream media articles, many from march…looks like the free web is nearly dead…nothing to see hear..move along please!!

  • fireguyjeff fireguyjeff

    Not meaning to be flippant.

    But now you know how things have worked within the Earth First! movement for the last 20+ years.

    This is mild. Wait until your life starts to crumble without it making any sense. You get fired for no reason.
    Your house gets raided without a search warrant and zero is done about it.
    Law enforcement will get caught in court lying and there are no consequences.
    All because you posted some actual news or reality item. Or you sent a complaint letter to a political representative.

    This stuff happens.

    Endless censorship and subversion from the media and govt(s).

    And nearly everyone you know writes you off as a conspiracy theorist.

    “Nuclear melt down?
    Let me guess… you read it on the internets! (Always smirking)
    Can’t happen.
    Too many fail safe backup systems and safe guards.
    They would never let that happen.
    Besides, I just saw it on the news that a little radiation is OK.
    How do you think dental X-rays happen fool?”

    I have been archiving specific enenews pages, but not as many as I would like to.

    End of rant.

    • arclight arclight

      thee was books printed in the 80s detailing internatioal and national blacklisting..especially in the telecommunications field!!!!!..due to various laws and policies this seemed to mostly wane with the break up of the soviet block…there was an open press then (more or less), equal opertunities, all that stuff..blacklisting is on the cards, the conditions are more than ripe for it (they are positively putrid for it). just a heads up thing… 🙁 i still choose to look down the rabbit hole though…its a free choice thing…

  • byron byron

    Don’t know where I’d find info if Enenews went down censored. They would probably try to take the info out of Facebook also. Would someone please post a set of links to other sites in case this happens?

  • Rosie

    I agree. Unlike most of the people I know I really don’t want to live in blissful ignorance. I’d be very worried if this site no longer existed. I’m very concerned.

  • moonkai

    Living in Tokyo, this site surely will be the turning factor in my decision in when I will decide to evacuate !! No doubt!!
    I really wanted to thank whoever has created Enenews. I have shared this blog with many of my friends here in Tokyo (and I do have many). It has open their eyes to the real danger ! I know some of them are actually evacuating very soon !

    Thx again and to all the wonderful people that posts on here !! You rock !

    I have taken my wife and kids out of this shithole on March 14th and it may be time for me to rejoin them !!

  • risabee risabee

    Alex was reposted around the youtube somewhat; one could try to find a way to archive those as well … Shoot footage of the screen if necessary …

  • nomade

    “It was not a typo. Mr Gunderson stated it was the “equivalent of 20 nuclear reactor cores because of the fuel cores”… meaning the stored spent rods + the reactor cores would be the equivalent of 20 cores”

    I didn’t get how Gunderson did his math when he said.

    I thought the amount of fuel in that plant was about 50 times Chernobyl?

    Judging by the way Tepco is handling things it’s all going to get released into the environment eventually… what is there to stop it getting released? That stupid tent they’re planning to put up at some time in the future?

  • arclight arclight

    i believe alex is waiting for a new passport to get out of the country..if someone with a you tube account could message him to contact us when he out of japan, that would be cool(dont have an account myself).

    • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

      OT: arclight, just in case you come near the german/luxembourgish border during your journey, I’d be happy to invite you to some chardonnay, if you like!
      Putting faces to names…

  • Fall out man!

    Bit of a side track, but just had a look through the tepco web cam. Saw what looked like a fluffy looking grey dog wander through at…
    2011-06-20 17:40:50
    Not sure if that’s a dog, or the famous unique to Japan dog like beast. Anyway, there is at least one still alive near the plant.
    I don’t know how you get history on the cam, but here is the live link for both cams through Lucas Whitefield…

  • moonkai

    Get out of there Rocky !! lol

  • alasanon

    Good luck to Alex! He’s smart & he rocks!

  • milk and cheese milk and cheese

    I had no trouble finding his video channel on Youtube, but nothing more recent than one month old.

  • sorry charlie

    I guess they will wipe out the past and rewrite history….per usual. Who is going to be around to read it…..I don’t think these folks think that far ahead.

  • Elenin Velikovsky Elenin Velikovsky

    Wow Save Documentation like Alex’s stuff!
    Hopefully somebody saved down and made CDs of
    a lot of this fine historical proofs of reality, in spite
    of the Damned Demons.
    Just think, any of you teachers or parents or
    group leaders of adults and kids
    savvy enough, well read enough to
    take, for example, a real interesting thread from
    the last couple weeks here at enenews, and
    ask your study group to GO to every link posted
    within these threads by everybody, and
    SAVE AS those pages, and/or copy-paste, and/or
    SAVE as PDFs, Videos, etc….ALL of them…
    LOOK what they have done to Alex.
    These links and discussions are Grad Level Seminars
    for reality versus Media Manipulation, Govt controls,
    I personally think everybody here should copy
    Kumars Earthquakes&Dams website, and
    comparewhat’s happening with our Missouri situation.
    And all the Beta-Flare links within links. If you DARE!
    How about it folks? I personally am anguishing
    over having to give up my hard-copy library
    and hit the road as a vagabond. But Somebody ought
    to try to preserve all this truthful reporting, info
    which is actively under attack by History-changer forces.

    This is because the UN owns Youtube. Do you really think they want the markets to collapse? followed by China dropping the dollar? They dont want that printing press to STOP! Once it doesn they would start looting each others money….


    blatant censorship

    ahoy alex,

    thanks again for your postings, your message was heard

    good luck brother

    We the tribunal of mind body and spirit, offer this statment of truth: we the tribunal of mind body and spirit, that is founded under full authority, as specified by the father the son and the holy ghost, also known as Trinity. commend Alex the man from France also known by his channel “playbacklapompe” on YouTube. We the tribunal offer our full unwaivering unconditional support. Alex has chosen and shows us the path that consists of truth and honour. while their are the majority of others who operate without truth or honour in their actions or words. in the face of multiple adversaries who use every dishonable tactic that is known to exsist. Alex has shown true courage and shall remain in full honour thoughout his experiance that he him self alone has been forced to travel, with no companion or group in which to offer guidance support and protection from the deceptions and tricks by those who only wish to decieve, which may cause Alex to stray from the path of truth.
    we ask at this time that all free thinking people’s use what it is that we all have, that can never be taking away, and that is the freedom of choice. we now ask that all people that are capable of making a choice to do so at this time.

  • Yahoo groups enenews discussion group is also available, for those who are interested. I think I’ve mentioned it once or twice on other threads. The address is linked to my user name.

    I’m the yahoo group owner, but I don’t post news links and that job is open if someone wants to take it on! The group is semi-moderated (meaning, the first message someone posts is subject to moderation. Once I see it’s not a spammer or troll I’ll change the status to un-moderated for that user. If needed that users status can be changed back to moderated…)

    I was trying to watch something on you tube..(Leuren Moret: Mega-tsunami, total melt-through, radiation levels and illnesses) I didn’t have time to watch when I came across and paused it to watch later, my computer restarted itself in the middle of the night, due to microsoft update… when my computer came back on at 3am… the pause disengaged and it was very loud in the house, making me get up to turn it off… a few hours later, my computer was trying to “update” without any warning… I hard shut down very quick as geez didn’t i update a few hours ago? Well, 12 new security fixes trying to go in via microsoft update…including registry entries… I was able to hard shut down, and hide the updates… but sure suspicious as all 12 “patches” were from 6-14.

    well. 2am here in Tokyo … and Reactor 4 is spitting its venom again ! Lots of it !

  • moonkai

    anyone knows how I can record Youtube when I am watching it live?

    • blackmoon

      If you are using Firefox you can install an extension called FlashGot. This extension will allow you do download the video to your hard drive, once it starts playing.

      As for Alex, I have watched his videos and posted links here. Alex, we are all with you. Please keep posting here when you can. Our prayers are with you and your family.

      BTW, YouTube did not even have the decency to say THEY deleted Alex’s videos, they display a message saying that the video was removed by the user. Gutless liers. I going to start downloading Leuren Moret’s videos before they disappear too.

  • YouTube has the flag icon to flag “inappropriate” videos, but I imagine this flag could be abused.

    A group of users could do a “flag attack” and bump up the number of flags causing the video to be removed.

    Lots of discussion on those issues here:

    There does not seem to be an appeals process to restore them.

  • RobertoNor

    He is mirrored at many places, youtube too and perhaps try to search for “playbacklapompe Fukushima cached” on google or elsewhere.
    To delete his videoblog about Fukushima is veeeery low and highly unethical of YOUTUBE!
    Shame on you YOUTUBE!

  • Rachel

    some of he’s video are visible on dailymotion.

    In France things seem to change, a lot of people wake up against that civil nuclear proliferation, with late..
