I heard chief Yoshida stepping down for the first time this evening. I was so shocked. I thought he was fine though.. It seems like it was very confidential.

Everyone was shocked, surprised, and regretting. He was the only person who could fight against the headquarters. I’m afraid it will affect our team work. I don’t know for how long I can stay here to work too, but I’m sad to see him off as a fellow in the battle field.

[...] According to Tepco, it was not Mr. Yoshida’s decision to step down, it was decided by Tepco.

Mr. Yoshida is expected to talk about the truth when he finally becomes free.

    Truth about his stepping down? Truth about the situation? More propaganda like the former Prime Minister’s truth’s? Wonder what we’ll get.

    If the chief is dying he should let out all the information he knows if he makes it out of the hospital. I am curious what his condition is. Enough radiation exposure could be fatal so lets hope that he is released and free to give real data. No use in getting paid from TEPCO if your dead right?

    do you remember months ago some scientist made a stand and we thought it would make a difference…the forces are to massive the money involved vast.

    this morning on the bbc we heard that billions will be invested in infrastructure including nuclear in a bid by the corrupt uk government to kick start the dead economy.
    various explosions have been going off at different iranian missile bases in the last month probably some kind of new us pulse weapon that maybe is where the radioactive iodine that is all over europe is coming from.
    the radioactive stuff that no media talks about unless to announce more new investment.
    i am pretty sure several wars are happening the fuckyishima one and the ones going on in the middle east.with lots of depleted uranium missile dust floating around.
    what happens when fukyshima cesium collides with libyan us airforce depleted uranium and us du and iranian radioactive iodine.
    what you get is blanket uk press coverage of a soccer player who hung himself..

    Here in the US you wouldn’t think anything was wrong in Japan at all. Every now and then the media might mention Japan, but it’s only to say how well the country is recovering economically after the earthquake.

    The fact that there’s radiation in our rain water and sometimes in the drinking water isn’t reported… also, there’s pretty much zero discussion about scaling back nuclear power…

    We get a few reports on incidents at our own nuclear plants, but they’re basically just more “nothing to see here and certainly nothing to be concerned about”…

    I hope he gets “out of the Hospital” before his health changes for the worse!

    Sounds like they put him in to shut him UP (pun intended)…

    Good Luck Chief Yoshida

    I am afraid after his statement that he will come out with the truth,that tomorrows report is that the chief has suddenly died.
