On June 7, 2012, about 70 women including 10 women from Fukushima did a “die-in” in front of the Prime Minister’s Official Residence to protest against the restart of Ooi Nuclear Power Plant. Before the die-in, 10 Fukushima women visited the Cabinet Office and met with officials […]

In late June last year, I started to suffer from various health problems one after another. These problems are exactly the same as those found in villages around Chernobyl.

  • effects of radiation on women and children are devastating

    radiation coming to the usa via jet streams near you

    mothers in America …. please share the rad news

    Yet another shocking display of extreme smog in china. This again following a rash of convection releases from the reactors at fukushima daichii… Although, I cannot say it is a ringer… We can however admit the timing is noteworthy.

    • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

      Though extreme smog is happening on a daily basis in Chinese cities, even before 311.
      Just recently, Chinese officials demanded the US embassy to stop their twitter channel of pollution readings from their own station at the embassy – as those US readings diferred too much from the "official" Chinese numbers.

    That's it then isn't it?
    This is the summation of the power and control exhibited by the governments and military powers of the world.
    In reality..
    The world is awash with radiation and tears.

    I watched the video on EXSKF of these women pleading with their government and was motivated to act.

    We must help the Japanese and ourselves in the USA prevent another disaster. I have posted on my blog a way for people in the USA to take some action to help. Also, I included a list of reasons that the Oi plant should remain in shutdown on my blog site.

    Take Action on June 14, 15 & 16 to keep Japanese Nuke Plant Shutdown!

    How can you help if you are in the USA?

    Contact the nearest Japanese Consul General’s Office; there are 16 of them in the USA, email, call or do both.

    Find the Japanese Consul General’s Offices in the United States here: http://www.us.emb-japan.go.jp/jicc/consulate-guide.html

    Protesting in front of their offices around the USA would also be a great way to help the Japanese that do not want the nuke plant reopened. Contact your local anti-nuclear group and see if you can get something going. Even a small group of ten people protesting can bring attention to this issue.


    • enoughalready45 enoughalready45

      Just an FYI: The dates June 14, 15, 16 coincide with the planned protests in Tokyo on June 15th. Protests at Prime Minister's residence and power plant's headquarters.

  • …a "sincere outcry from the soul" – One does not need to speak Japanese to understand the full intensity of these peoples feelings. – !!! <– for StillJill

    "I lost hope to live. But, to tell everyone about this agony …now I'm trying to live for that purpose."
    – One of the Ten Women in video

    Every word they say is absolutely 'spot on' as far as I can tell.

    They are a superhero team of truth. 🙂

    We really need to follow their lead right NOW!

    This should be the lead story on NBC Nightly News.
    (I know, I've been called a 'dreamer' before.)

    If women (people) around could just see this, the world might unite.

    my thoughts go to the people of japan..

    i hope common sense and not the economy will be a future driving force for japan and everywhere else.. or else

    Bhopal (ongoing)
    Kuwaiti Oil Fires (ongoing)
    Gulf oil spill (ongoing)
    The Exxon Valdez (ongoing)
    Tokaimura Nuclear Plant (ongoing)
    The Aral Sea (ongoing)
    Seveso Dioxin Cloud (ongoing)
    Minamata Disease (ongoing)
    Three Mile Island (ongoing)
    Budapest radiation contamination (ongoing)
    Fallujah (ongoing)

    …there will be a longer list..

      to clarify fukushima is ongoing times 3 say least and chernobyl is shall we say.. still a bit of a worry !!

  • ML

    Money, power and weapons mean everything to heartless leaders. The future of our genes are at stake and these women sense this. Women pass on mitochondrial genes to their offsrping and this is what is most affected by radiation.
    A study done on a population of people who lived in an area that was naturally more radioactive due to a concentration of radioactive phosphorus did not show outwardly apparent mutations. But when their mitochondrial DNA was compared with a population living with more usual rates of background radiation, then the patterns of damage that emerged. (http://www.pnas.org/content/99/21/13950.long Natural Radioactivity and Human Mitochondrial DNA Mutations by Forster, et al, 2002.)
    So when the pro-nuclear data started being generated it was well before we knew about mitochondrial DNA, and well before we began understanding how mitochondrial DNA was more susceptible to even relatively low levels of natural radiation.

    • Thank you ML!

      May I re-post your comment at my blog?

      I am working on a chapter on Fukushima and have looked extensively at the bystander effect and delayed effects.

      I understand that the current dose-response measurements are inaccurate when one considers internal emitters given these effects.

      However, I knew nothing about the mitochondrial DNA issue!

      Big help for me. Thank you!

  • nedlifromvermont

    Thank you ML for the insights

    We really knew very little when we impulsively opened the Pandora's Box of radioactive actinides …

    Even though Einstein cautioned against this poisonous business …

    Big money fools from GE and Morgan Bank pushed ahead with commercialization … heck they had ten years invested in congressional corruption money by the time Price-Anderson was shoved through in 1957 (Investigation please) …

    … and you, silly 'newsers, think you are going to keep me from my NUCLEAR!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha HAH!

    Deep bow in front of these ladies! If someone does not share their feelings now, he/she must remember we all share the same air. It is only a matter of time.

    Prime Minister Noda,

    So, you did not accept full responsibility, for your previous actions regarding the people who you sent back to live in the high radiation areas.

    "A state of cold shutdown exists"!

    Instead, you sent others to stand in your place.

    You are the supposed leader of your people, and yet you hid yourself away as someone without honor. Can you live with this shame? If you can, then please resign, so that someone who accepts and understands responsibility can lead the people of Japan. If you cannot live with this shame, then speak out and change while you still have time.

    Maybe, if you had attended the meeting with the women from Fukushima, you might have at least given credulity to you taking full responsibility for this upcoming re-start.

    You have put your people in harms way, and only you are responsible for them.

    If you were a military leader instead of the pm, you would make certain that the soldiers, going into harms way, were as prepared as possible. Also, you would stand by them for their sacrifice.

    What you have done instead, is lie in full knowledge of their genetic genocide.

    To what lofty goal are your people being sacrificed? Maybe, someone else can answer this as I am feeling a little nauseous right now.
