  • He was interviewing an activist, Sono Ryota, a public security approached them
  • Terasawa [...] asked if it’s true that a lot of police officers, who were sent to Fukushima, die of taking too much radionuclides
  • The man answered, that is true, his parents are in Fukushima too [...] He said no words and walked off. [...]

      On the 27th of October 2011, Fukushima women met government officials in Tokyo to demand that the government evacuate Fukushima children immediately. But, the government official only repeated the government’s
      policy of cleaning up the contaminated areas in Fukushima.

      On the 27th of October 2011, hundreds of Fukushima women gathered in front of the governmental building (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) in Tokyo for a
      three day sit-in to protest against nuclear power plants.

      Among them, thirty Fukushima women met government
      officials. They handed a written request asking for the abolition of all nuclear power plants and the evacuation of Fukushima children, and demanded the government answer to it in writing by 11th of November.

      But, the normal channels of mainstream media storytelling are already inherently hostile to such news. Which is why we are here on enenews. They are too self-protective of their status as the Fourth Estate. Too interwoven into the problem. Any solution through MSM would require a shift in the MSM first, and there’s really no time for that, is there. But, sometimes truth slips under the wire if it is small enough. Got any ideas? I’ll check back here later in case you got one or two you will post. Btw, just stayed up too late replying to the ongoing disinformation campaigned being waged on the webcam forum. But, must be done. I’ve seen too many good movements fail cause of those tactics. Sad. I’m not sure if we are helping, but, i think, maybe a little. I’m hoping to lead a merry chase!

    This is an extraordinary tidbit of information. A thin edge of the wedge leak, that is highly unusual especially amongst authorities in Japan. Lets not forget the official account still clings to “not one life lost” narrative.

    This is highly unusual for Japanese people, for a myriad of reasons. A highly disciplined society, it is remarkable that police would let even one word slip in this fashion.

    Additionally, the Nagasaki/Hiroshima days also led to a disturbing division in society amongst those “contaminated” and those not. It was so pervasive and riddled with serious connetations that the results of which are still prevalant today. A notion that would only add to the burying of such information as this and the avoidance of any Japanese subculture making such admissions let alone authorities like police.

    Another sign the “Official story” is breaking down and the stranglehold of TPTB is loosening.

    Very interesting in that regard.

    Noda to visit Fukushima
    Politics Jan. 08, 2012 – 06:54AM JST ( 5 )
    TOKYO —

    Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda on Sunday will visit Fukushima Prefecture. Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said Saturday that Noda wants to visit the diasaster-hit Tohoku region before the Diet session convenes on Jan 23.

    The prime minister is also scheduled to visit Iwate and Miyagi Prefectures on Jan 10.

    In Fukushima, Noda will inspect ongoing work to decontaminate buildings and roads. He will also discuss with Fukushima Gov Yuhei Sato measures to dispose of soil and rubble tainted by radioactive materials.

    Noda has made two visits to the Tohoku since he became prime minister in August. His last visit was to Fukushima City in October.”

      Noda presses Fukushima to accept waste storage plan

      Jan. 09,
      “……Noda apologized for having to ask more of the people of Fukushima who are already suffering.

      Noda told Sato that although the government announced on Dec 16 that the Fukushima plant was now in a state of cold shutdown, the battle was not over, Fuji TV reported.

      However, Sato replied that the Dec 16 declaration was at odds with the true situation. He said that the government’s definition of “containing a crisis” is very different from how Fukushima people see it, Fuji reported.

      Noda assured Sato that the government would place priority on decontamination, ensuring compensation was paid to affected residents and monitoring their long-term health.

      Sato requested that the central government provide free health care for children up to 18 years of age.

    Fukushima is emitting approximately 15 Billion BTU’s per hour of heat – right now – today.

    That’s coming from wide open nuclear reactions.

    Folks – I think it’s time to stop worrying about the people of Japan, and start worrying about the rest of the people in the world.

    The die is cast on the people of Japan. If folks, women, Children, policemen – anybody is still near the plant – they will die.

    Folks on the rest of Honshu have received a large dose of radiation and it is getting stronger. Many of them will die.

    Folks on the West coast of the US and Canada have received a large dose of radiation. Many of them will die.

    Folks in the rest of the Northern Hemisphere have received some radiation and some will die.

    The Pacific Ocean has received a large dose of radiaiton – much of its animal life will die.

    The northern and southern hemisphere air mixes slowly. At this point the Southern hemisphere has the MOX plutonium that was ejected from #3.

    What else do you need to know? Start planning your next steps now – no matter where you are…

      Sure.

      From the first few days, any one still have a common sense about the nuclear accident and a little bit knowledge about the true nature of this disaster in Fuckshima know what will come to us on this planet.

      It is not a Japanese problem, not only countries in Pacific, it is already everyone , all the human being’s nightmare on this world.

      No matter we like it or not, we are already the same one,with the same fortune waiting for us in the coming days or years, with regards on the nuclear containment.

      Wake up everyone, all the rules and society system ,laws both internal or international all over this world is melt-down with those reactors, already.

      That is already the facts over last almost 10 months since the Fuckshima reactors explosion.

      Do not follow them ,the laws and your government leaders, do not asking anything from the leaders of all the world anymore, they are the different one in this case.

      I have a new born baby is coming this year, I just too much worried about what a life is waiting for him.

For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.”

          As Chinese I feel so much sorry for what happen after the modern civilization come to us.

          Deep in our hearts and soul, we are not prepared to accept all those toys: Nuclear, arms,democracy,modern laws and every thing from west.

          No justice, no equal love and care for ourselves and our neighborhood,just bloodily killings in revolution and invasions with each others…the sad bloodily history of last 200 years in Asia.

          ALL OF our civilization is built on sand, that is why all those evils happen here, not only in China, but same in Japan.

          Cursed..I am sorry to say.

      Where’d you find the 15 billion BTU figure, James? Should be some nice thermal images from space showing that. No doubt that plume of heat rising helps particulates to rise with it – into that jet stream and round and round the globe, where she stops…nobody knows.

        I calculated the 15 Billion BTU’s per hour myself over on the webcam thread.

        All the shills went nuts when I did it, but no one as yet has any better numbers.

        Nuckelchen has a video where the clouds are disappearing as the wind blows them over the plant.

        That’s from a heat plume. I wanted to know how much heat it took to do that, so I simply calculated how much heat it would take to heat up the air in and over the plant, and then raise the temperature above the dew point spread at the top of the clouds.

        All of the inputs were 100% estimated, but it was an educated guess and the calculations are normal weather calculations. I’d give it +- 50-75% accuracy.

      This is a refreshingly realistic comment. It gives us all a better idea of how to proceed from here. I am in Australia, east coast near Brisbane. For the last two months or so, I have been wondering if the FUKU poison has found its way here. Little things like a few nosebleeds, and unexplained cough. People suddenly getting weak and increases in cancer around the area. Don’t know what it is, but of course our government will NEVER tell us, will they? Am trying to avoid risk, which is difficult when you cannot see it hear it touch it smell it or taste it

      Look at any weather article about the north and south hemipheres. The air does mix – something like 10% per month. Actually most of the mixing occurs in the higher altitudes, the lower altitudes don’t mix as much.

      I seem to recall a report of Plutonium in Australia a couple months ago. Regardless – any manmade device traveling from Japan to the southern hemisphere is carrying plutonium particles with it – ships, planes, people, cargo – anything.

    “Protecting People and the Environment”

    Speak Your Mind!

    The NRC has determined that it has confidence in using spent fuel pools for up to 60 years past the closing of a Nuke Plant. Hmmmm.

    They assume that

    1) Society won’t break down AND loss of knowledge (like there won’t be a single CD that shows how dangerous spent fuel is). Well what if society breaks down, but there is still a CD of knowledge left. OK! Their conditions are met, their assumptions were not wrong!
    2) Terrorism doesn’t need to be considered, it is outside of their scope.
    3) They don’t consider that “loss of institutional control” will ever happen because “the trend in modern society is toward more awareness and control over issues that pose a risk to humans and their environment.” Yeah Right!
    4) They assume that the nuke plant operators will provide continuing financial support for their used fuel “regardless of cost”, can I puke now?
    They won’t even touch the 8000 lb Gorilla in the Room….The Carrington effect, a large sun storm that wipes out transformers and thus the world wide power grid. As you may know, if a nuke plant loses power, it melts down, and I mean the reactor AND the fuel pools.

        tlaking of things socialist

        “Once confined to nuclear facilities and university laboratories, the people of Fukushima prefecture have become amateur radiologists, tracking radiation from place to place as wind and rain transport it around in random patterns across the local landscape.

        Worried and angry because they have not received accurate information from the Japanese government about the radiation threat and because they want the government to evacuate more affected areas, the people of Fukushima have had to take matters into their own hands. ……, “The following tendency was observed: transmission and public announcement of information on urgent matter(s) was delayed, press releases were withheld, and explanations were kept ambiguous. Whatever the reasons behind (this), such tendency was hardly appropriate, in view of communication in an emergency.”

        According to the people of Fukushima, this tendency is continuing, especially now that Prime Minister Noda announced that the nuclear crisis has “been resolved”.

        In Fukushima city the people are organizing to protect and monitor themselves. In a slightly surreal experience, I am directed to one of the many Meccas to Japanese consumerism that are a feature of every town. But rather than shopping, inside the mall I am taken to the recently set-up Citizens Radioactivity Measuring Station. Just inside are neatly arranged slippers, children’s toys and a blackboard. Behind the counter there’s equipment to test food for radiation as well as a whole body counter where children and adults come by daily to check their body’s radiation levels. It’s run almost entirely by volunteers who have received radiological health training from a French NGO and is free for anyone below the age of 20.

    Japan and Nuclear Radiation
    Source: Dissident Voice
    by Chris Williams / December 23rd, 2011

    “Radiation and life cannot go together.”

    “So said 64-year-old Chieko Shiina, a member of the group Fukushima Network for Saving Children from Radiation and a traditional farmer from Miyagi Prefecture, in reference to nuclear radiation, as I sat inside the tent on the floor across from her on Day 102 of the sit-in. In years gone by she would have been 100 miles north on her farm tending her crops and doing such things as fermenting rice to make sake, harvesting leaves to make tea or manufacturing tatami mats. However, her farm, in southern Miyagi Prefecture is just north of Fukushima and so, while Chieko’s farm is not in an evacuation area, it is too heavily contaminated with radiation for her to farm or sell her products: “I cannot let people eat these things.”

    The tent encampment where we met is directly outside the Tokyo headquarters of METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) and NISA (Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency) and began on September 11, the six month anniversary of the combined disasters of the March 11 genpatsu shinsai, a new term that combines a catastrophic quake with a nuclear disaster. Mothers from Fukushima traveled to Tokyo and launched the sit-in with the slogan “We Stood Up to Sit Down,” as they demanded that the Japanese government provide accurate information on the levels of radiation, better protection, and expansion of the evacuation zone for their children….”

    “As been reported earlier on our blog, the Japanese police acted extremely aggressive within the last anti-nuclear-demonstration in Tokyo on September 11, 2011. Twelve people got arrested without any legal reason on that day. It seems that the new anti-nuclear movement in Japan is facing the means of state oppression as their biggest obstacle.
    Critics and activists try their best to protest against those illegitimate arrestments. On September 29, 2011, a press conference took place in the “Foreign Correspondence Club” in Tokyo. The critic and philosopher Karatani Kôjin, the cultural scientist Ukai Satoshi, the historian Oguma Eiji and the activist Amamiya Karin took part in it. Together they made a joint statement and answered questions by foreign journalists.”

    If enough radioactive particulate is making it’s way into the jet stream, and I have no doubt it is, then water, land, air, seas, everything, everything, everything, is being poisoned and there is no ‘prepare for the worst’, ‘hunker down in place’, ‘do what you need to do to save yourself’, there is nothing to be done. Eventualy, enough radiation will concentrate it’s way up the food chain, be drank in, and breathed in, BY ALL OF US, that we will receive a lethal dose. Sorry to be blunt, but that’s pretty much what we got going right now. You can try and delay your own contamination, but you won’t ever be able to eliminate being contaminated yourself. Remember the ‘millions and billions of invisible poisonous snakes biting all of us’, that is exactly true. That is precisely what is happening right now. If you haven’t been eating and drinking pre 3-11 food and water, and wearing a resperator that filters radiation from the air, 24-7, you are already contaminated to some degree, and it only goes up from here, there is no ‘going down’ when it comes to radiation exposure.

      Now I ride a M/C everywhere I go, took a lot of drive to see my daughter 40 miles each way in Late March and April and for days after be very fatigue each time or when I would be on it for a few hours a day, had to get on steroids twice in 5 months, I take B12s 2500mg so I should never be tied ! Sorry for all them who will not live a full life in a healthier world as we had !

            I’m still doing all right. Sometimes people have symptoms of a heart attack when they go from sea level to the top of Pikes Peak. When I came to Colorado in 1968, my father came and drove to the top of Pikes Peak. He had emphysema and asthma. He said he would never come back to Colorado again, and didn’t. Even my grandchildren one summer when we went up to 8,000 feet had symptoms of altitude sickness – like a flu. Everyone thought it was the flu, but it had been extremely hot and on TV they reported that many people had problems. You have to drink a whole lot of water in the high altitude.

    I will be watching the fish spawn in MN this spring and in subsequent years, it will be interesting to see how this effects fish populations. I’m gonna bet it doesn’t improve them. I will watch what I catch and see how they are affected.

    RE: the video at the top, Japanese women will clench their hands so tightly the nails will cause the palms to bleed, before showing grief or strong emotion. To see a Japanese person cry shows unbelievable suffering and uncontrollable suffering. Please be aware of this as you watch these people. They are far more reserved with strong emotion than Westerners.

    Excuse me, I meant an uncontrollable level of strong emotion ….

    Yes, James & St.PaulScout – I agree with your assessments or summing up of our situation. We’re all ‘hoping for the best’ & ‘hoping against hope’ that things are not that bad – but good grief, just casually eye-balling the basic facts, which are there to see for anyone willing to do a cursory bit of reading… we are really IN TROUBLE.

    Re So. America, I heard one anecdotal account (from Dr. Bill Deagle on rense.com radio) that a guy in Vilcabamba, Uruguay had a geiger counter & was getting some pretty high readings – I don’t recall the details.

    I live in Hawaii, am 68, & my health has taken a nose dive, but it is hard to be sure it is all due to the radiation. Part of it is that it hit me hard emotionally, since I have been studying the evil ways/means/goals/doings of TPTB literally for decades, & all along hoping it was not a bad as it seemed, they were not as deranged & ruthless as they seemed, the people were not as hopelessly apathetic & dim bulbs as they seemed… etc.

    I thought I was tough-minded & saw the grim truth clearly. But Fukushima taught me that I still was seeing through the rose-tinted glasses… Fukushima finally divested me of the last shreds of my ‘denial.’ Effect on me emotionally was bad, I got very depressed & gave up. That in itself can have a negative effect on health. Plus I stopped being so careful with my diet.

    Hard to track cause & effect is what I am saying – but my health has deteriorated, & I suspect that it has more to do than I’ve realized with my radionuclide exposure … not only recently, but also as a child, during the bomb testing etc. since we have learned that those exposures were not as harmless as we’ve been told, & I have had to make efforts to remain in reasonably good health.

    Anyway, we can see it happening, more bad news keeps coming at us – sick kids, sick animals, women with hair falling out… & we are still just seeing the EARLY STAGES of this on-going – what? – ELE?

      Bleep take care of yourself.

      Folks with your knowledge are the ones who are going to be needed to help us through this. You need to stay strong to help others.

      It’s impossible to predict if it’s an ELE – however if it is, none of us will know about it. It would happen very slowly and we’ll be dead before anybody has any proof.

      What I do know is life is very resilient. Perhaps there is a way through it. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part, but I think we need to have the proper information in order to make the best decisions we can – that’s why I harp on the truth and fight openly with the shills.

      I do know that I’ve pulled a few bucket list items forward, just in case.

        If reactor 3 exploded and ejected part or all of it’s core, if SFP3 and SFP4 have burned up, this is a level of contaminations that will kill almost all animal life on this planet. From what I have read, here on ENENEWS and on other what I would consider accurate web sites, this is an accident of unprecedented and world-wide consequences, far exceeding the preceeding 25 catastrophees combined, by a large exponential value. In my mind there can be only one reason almost all world governments not just refuse to release info about the contamination, but a virtual news black out has been enfoced on this subject. Society would fall apart in a week if they came out and told everyone, ‘Look people, it’s been fun but now we are going to slowly die off, we will be going the way of the dinasaurs….’, mayhem would ensue, society would collapse. Hope like hell I’m wrong but it sure seems to be the case.

    Dear Bleep,

    I am with you. I am a 56 year old woman living in the Pacific northwest. My health, too, has taken a nosedive and I, too, wonder if it could have to do with radiation. Currently, I am undergoing tests to see what is causing significant post menopausal bleeding, coughing fits that have gone on for several months now, and my falling ill at the slightest provocation. These are all new experiences for me. Of course, I was also around for the radiation caused by the nuclear testing of the early 60s. Maybe my body is saying this is all it can take. I don’t know. I doubt if I will ever know. But at least you are not alone.

    Well, I'm sorry to read about so many people feeling under the weather. :/… I'm hanging in there! I feel as good as usual, but I do take precautions and now have a rather weird "avoidance" diet, for the most part.

    I really think so much of this battle is mental & spiritual as well…

    I do sense there's radiation out there after being out in the snowfall this weekend–wore my gloves!… But, I counter it with detoxers and an intense, positive mental attitude.

    I grew up in one of the most toxic parts of the industrial Midwest–now ranked as probably the most polluted city per capita in the country, so I guess I'm used to pollution & crappy air of all kinds. I say, this is all you got?!! ha! Bring it. :P

    No, it's terrible. But, I'm just not noticing it personally.
