Description: A 30 minute documentary commissioned by CWS-Asia/Pacific on the aftermath of the March 11, 2011, nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan…

At 15:45 in

Yoshino Hiroyuki, NPO [non-profit organization] Shalom says it is necessary to protect children by changing the environment around the children so they are not under constant exposure to radiation.

Hiroyuki: We need to start a rotating evacuation for children as soon as possible. Otherwise radiation just continues to accumulate. If permanent evacuation is impossible we can maintain their health by temporary evacuation on a rotational basis. [...] This is the minimum we need to do.

    good grief! has it really come to that? no permanent evacuation solutions… great cause they are fighting, considering the situation is held in place because of the corporations and the war machine!

    Allow people to have a fresh start in less contaminated lands!!.. imo

    heart breaking

    wonderful post Admin!

    Typhoon Hits Japan as Nuclear Plant Construction Resumes. Admission of plutonium release.

    “During the Unit 3 meltdown at Fukushima, plutonium as well as uranium radiation was released. MOX, which is more radioactive than uranium fuel, generated additional fear among people areas near Fukushima Daiichi.”

    http://nuclear-news.net/2012/10/01/typhoon-hits-japan-as-nuclear-plant-construction-resumes-admission-of-plutonium-release/

    the nuclear industry suffers from extreme narcisism and psychopathy!

    i dont think the food monitoring covers plutonium or strontium

    Plutonium and elements (Total radioactive concentration of 238Pu,239Pu, 240PU, 241Am,242Cm, 243Cm, 244Cm)
    Infant food = 1 Bq/kg
    Water and Milk = 1 Bq/kg
    Vegetables, Grain, Meat, Eggs, Fish = 10Bq/kg

    Derived Intervention Levels for consumption or export
    Iodine-131 = 170 Bq/kg
    Cesium-137 = 1200 Bq/kg (also Cesium-134)
    Plutonium = 2 Bq/kg (includes Plutonium-238 + Plutonium-239 + Americium-241)
    Stronium-90 = 160 Bq/kg
    Ruthenium-103 &106 = (C3 / 6800) + (C6 / 450) < 1

    in fact i think the monitors the farmers use only show limited radionuclides. :(

      couple of things, StPaulScout: it would be helpful if you preceded your responses with the intended recipients handle. And while you're putting my name on the envelope, use threaded responses. This allows others to know who and why your responding.

      Moving on. Unlike those who live their lives in a fantasy world of car wrecks and shoot-outs, most humans live in the real world. Suggesting that parents risk the loss of their freedom, while struggling to keep their children safe, is irrational. I agree that a strong message must be sent to those who jeopardize the welfare of the people. But such action is fraught with great consequence. You are personally free to go on record as being in support of violence. (Just know that 'they' know the identity of who's behind every raging message.) Should you not care, then you're either ignorant of what's going on in the world of adults, or, you're attempting to incite others towards violence. Regardless of your motives (or response), the rest of us will continue with more constructive strategies. Unlike those with rage in their hearts, we desire a world of harmony and peace.

      Finally, try refraining from the use of expletives out here. Unbeknownst to some, this site is used by many throughout the world. Posting vulgarities detracts from your (presumably) good intentions and only adds to your assertions of widespread stupidity…

        AFTERSHOCK, your desire of a world of peace and harmony is nice, but also a pure idealism. Analyze what is the material structure of our society. A ruling class exploiting a subordinate class and extracting surplus value extorted from work, which turns into money and capital. This production system has long been in crisis, and a new system, no more based on exploitation, is now possible. It's possible to organize the working class to seize the power and impose a new system founded on common design, production and distribution of goods and services, without market, banks and money (communism). The ruling class will use all methods of violence to maintain the power and gain their profits, as it has done many times in the past: terrorism, civil war, national or generalized wars. The proletariat will therefore necessarily and unfortunately use violence to defend themselves and their children. By this logic (dialectical materialism) you cannot escape. To hope for a peaceful world without organize the class is a funny idealism but a disaster for the human race. National bourgeoises, turned imperialistic, have overcome this idealism centuries ago, thanks to Kant, Machiavelli, Hegel and Smith and will impose once again their rule with violence. It's time that the working class, by the example of Marx and Lenin, face this reality and get internationally united. Hoping for peace means to disarm the class in front of the enemy.

          I afraid orsobubu, that you've fallen into the very trap you'd warn others of. I might have some sympathy for your viewpoints, had you came out here espousing anarchy. Instead, you invite us all to join the very ideology that millions struggled against over the last century. Before taking my leave, I'll invite you to add "The Black Book of Communism" to your bedtime reading. When you're done reading it, do come back and we'll pick-it-up from there…

            AFTERSHOCK, I know very well that simplicistic and popular literature. These instead are some english links to Amadeo Bordiga's works; especially "Economic and Social Structure of Russia Today" (1966) is the fundamental book where the capitalistic nature of Russia was scientifically explained: money, market, wage work, banks (obviously a state-capitalism, not a free trade capitalism, but this is irrelevant). You have a proof nowadays, when the crisis is setting the stage for a western state-capitalism (bank bailouts, etc). China is another good example. Without studying Bordiga, along with Engels, Marx and Lenin, you absolutely cannot make some progress to understand political economy and also the general context for the Fukushima event. But I know my words are useless with you.

              actually orsobubu, your words are not being disregarded. On the contrary, I value you're effort. You may choose to ignore the evidence, but centralization has a distasteful history. Thinking the masses can somehow be mesmerized with faith in collectivism, only serves those who do the final accounting. That dream of internationalism has simply morphed into globalized corporatism. You should be excited by these destructive market strategies that are being imposed by the internationalists. The communist dream of world resource consolidation is about to be realized. Of course, the 'peasants' have little idea to what's descending upon them and their children. Just be assured, by the time your 'dream' has seen it's final night, you will be reaching-out for the very torch that ignites your waiting pyre…

    Capitalist production system is characterized by absolute preponderance of wage labor, market economy, banks and exchange through money, that is exactly like the Russian one. Communist system is a system of production where the above factors are absent in favour of scientific world planning according to products use values for global human benefit; products exchange values ​​(prices) no longer exist, as well as the capital is no longer necessary to put men at work. Communism thus never existed to date in history, it is just a program. The western industrial production has always been much more planned and centralized than Soviet one, which was really anarchic and disorganized by comparison. Russian collectivism is a myth, as the workers were extremely exploited (there was even Stakanovism), so with enormous capitalistic profits seized by the bureaucratic dominant class, of which the present is the child. What you call internationalism is actually the extension of capitalism on a global scale, where the anarchic market competition still divides the bourgeoisie of the various imperial blocks, ready to go to war each other. Internationalism is only possible if there is no longer a class that appropriates the result of the work of a subordinate class, then the reasons to steal each other the world shares of surplus value will disappear. In communism, without the spending/profit limits of capitalism, a Fukushima-like event would be absurd. In capitalism, is a necessary outcome.

      nice to see you, orsobubu making the rounds. I genuinely appreciate your explanations, as I notice they're balanced in their analysis of the differing socioeconomic systems. In truth, I can't argue with the ideal objectives of a communist system. I've even suggested that regardless of historic trends, the very survival of the species (for that matter, all species on this planet) will depend on a more equitable and planned system; the very concepts you espouse. However, not unlike the ideal objectives of religious orders, these systems are subject to transition (and generational transmission) of succeeding generations, and thus, corruptible. These issues are analyzed in most-any thesis on dialectical materialism. Finally (cause I have to get back to work here), drawing parallels between capitalism and Fukushima is possible if you can disengage the failure of Chernobyl and that nation's former(?!) political ideology. And we've still to see the results of China's attempt to play the nuclear power game. Though you may be unaware, I've long-ago reviewed these issues. Looking forward to more of your intelligent posts…

    Thanx for the reply AFTERSHOCK. I also appreciate your insights. from which I saw that basically we think in similar ways. I knew from the beginning that we would be divided on the issue of communism. McCarthyism, Stalinism, and Karl Popper unfortunately did a lot of damage to the theory. It is important to know that the so-called communist countries are those that have killed more communists than anyone else. The explanation is simple, considering that communism was an ideological label applied by the bourgeoisie of that fascist dictatorships to dominate their proletarian classes. Likewise, moreover, I think it's very difficult today – after state bailouts – believe that in the U.S. or in Europe the free market rules. Communism is the historical process of workers' liberation, is the undergoing process of the world transforming itself. Chernobyl, the Chinese centrals, etc. are certainly the result of a sick capitalism which aims at immediate profit without being able to have the funds necessary to deal with such titanic achievements in safety. What is needed for mankind today – the treatment of cancer, desertification, pollution, famine, the transfer of industrial production in space, etc, are now too big for sick capitalism to manage, to find the necessary capitals. History will solve this contradiction with the passage (unfortunately violent, only because

    of the bourgeois will not give up power easily) to a higher stage, where money is no longer necessary to put at work billions people now underemployed.
    If we do not succeed, the likely outcome will be a world war. On corruption: bourgeoisie did not fear corruption when preparing to conquer the world from feudalism. Communism, establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat instead of the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, will outlaw both money and exploitation of their fellows, which are now at the heart of capitalism, and therefore making corruption much more difficult, at the same way that capitalism has made slavery much harder today. Then of course you're right, dialectical materialism by definition is a continuous change of different social superstructure as different modes of production surge. Nobody thinks that communism could be eternal, I personally believe that anarchism (Feyerabend) may be a later stage. We're not expected to know what social forms could adopted by species that passed, eg., the stage of dependence on their physical forms. About fukushima, AFTERSHOCK, I'm really, really worried about the monster exploding or carving out underground or to the sea. To lose an ocean seems like an horrible nightmare to me. I am Italian. How many kilometers do you live far from Japan? Are you in the northern hemisphere? Did you change something in your lifestyle? have you any child? This cannot became true.

      your perception, orsobubu of these issues is impressive. I’m impressed by your honesty and comprehension. I'll do my best to justify your valuable contribution.

      You are correct in recognizing the vicious repression of the communist revolution's vanguard. This was seen as the only expedient means to retaining control over party agenda. And though these 'purges' were successful, they ultimately undermined the long-term goals of the communist; that is, until the multinationals 'rediscovered' the fallow fields of China.

        I agree that we are not witnessing the free market in the West. What we are witnessing is the usurpation of free market principles as justification for the control of emerging markets. The rhetoric of “making the world safe for democracy” has become the murderous rational behind the forced consolidation of every nation’s resources. As the masses cannot be given the free (and equitable) choice to determine their destiny, fundamental concepts behind communism must be abandoned for the illusion of a popularized forms of self-determinism, which in itself is a threat to centralized control. This is the quandary that modern society finds itself in. Those in control cannot allow genuine freedom without risking their long-term objectives of centralized control. At the same time, those who have suffered under the repression of corrupted governments are primed for the ideological dream of communism by the very internationalists that colluded with their oppressors! Those who have suffered under the repressive exploitation of corporatism (fascism) are equally primed for the promise of ‘soft’ communism, aka socialism. The fluidity of these control mechanisms are exemplified by China’s current (and successful!) economic programs.

          I love your description of corporatism as being “sick capitalism”! Unfortunately, none of us has actually lived within a capitalist system – sick or otherwise – for close to a hundred years (if not longer). Most have experienced a ‘compromised’ form of capitalism. This distortion resulted with the advent of centralized banking; themselves empowered by interminable resource wars and the seductive appeal of (fiat currency) funding of these same military exploits. The resulting debt burden for those who took advantage of these lending institutions (inadvertently) sacrificed their economic independence (and national sovereignty) for membership within ‘capitalist’ fiefdoms. So what we now see as multinational corporate enterprises are, in effect, chartered organizations that represent international banking interests. We are now witnessing the remnants of a hallowed-out form of capitalism; bereft of obligation to any, but their majority share holders; which not surprisingly, turns-out to be the very institutions (banks) that fostered their (parent) country’s debts!

            It is a common mistake to perceive the current chaos we’re witnessing in our world as example of failed policy. The masses are supposed to think our world is in disarray (at least those of us who bother to look). The reality is far different than what the outsider sees. In fact, we’re at the final stages of the (necessary) preparations for a controlled reduction in (what is deemed a) ‘surplus’ population. The latest headlines reveal intractable differences between nations, which in-turn threatens a global-wide conflict. Truth is, these same problems are easily solved through ‘back-room’ diplomacy. Yet these very issues will not be resolved, as they’re being used to set the stage for the final consolidation of the world’s resources. The initial (hot) phase will escalate from conventional weapons to more environmentally benign techniques (biological) in population reduction. The ‘survivors’ will be more than compliant with the whims of the emerging ‘winners’. Only then will humanity be permitted to address the more pressing issues. I agree with your list of pressing issues, especially “…the transfer of industrial production in space…” Unfortunately, as you’ve alluded in your statement about up-coming conflicts, a host of other objectives are taking precedence over the perceived needs of outsiders.

              I must point out your in error thinking that capital, itself, is corrupting. Power is far more influential when it comes to compromising an individual’s ideological integrity. And that desire for power will lubricate the slide towards repression. It has in the past and will do so in the far future. The only way to change this endless pathology is to change the very nature of humans; a change that humans will initially resist.

              I’m glad that we’re coming to my initial suggestion that anarchism (decentralized social organizations) is the ultimate goal. Most perceive anarchism as being chaotic or retrograde in nature. Due to our species ultimate destiny (surviving in deep space), we’ll not be able to afford the luxury of decentralized living. For such reason, I will not argue its merits or possibility. I can assure you that our species is meeting all of its predetermined evolutionary timelines. I am disappointed that we’ll be going through this third (and final) global conflict. Had we the means to convey the necessary discipline to each succeeding generation, we could’ve avoided this up-coming ‘coalescing’ conflict. And though I’m not free to elaborate within this open forum, I can assure you that the human species does survive this current timeline. The “…dependence on their physical forms…” continues; but in an ‘amalgamated’ state.

                The current catastrophes (Fukushima included) that you’re witnessing are necessary to our destiny. This is not to say that these environmental/industrial events do not threaten us. On the contrary, they are currently being evaluated for their impact on the plan to reduce the human population. There is a remote chance that these plans will be put on hold (or completely abandoned) if Fukushima is determined to be insurmountable. In a strange turn of events, Fukushima may be the very thing that saves this species! Not because it is not as great a threat as some perceive but that it is so great. I’m hoping (for all of you) that ‘others’ will become more forthcoming in disclosing the extent of this threat to the general public. Considering the concurrent issues of radiological contamination of the populace, carrying out the pre-planned reduction in population may be deemed preemptive and non-productive. Keep in mind that this plan was put into effect almost a hundred years ago. They did not anticipate what we are currently facing, so it’s likely there is much review under way. I would also advise against (the common) thinking that events at Fukushima were purposeful. They were the result of natural events (earthquake) and ill planning. I’ll hint, you need only think ‘timeline’ to understand that other ‘forces’ may be intervening on behalf of the human species.

    Wow AFTERSHOCK, I'll study your special post with accuracy. I got a lot of inspiration from it. Thanx, AFTERSHOCK, fantastic to see how many common themes we feel, after all.

    Here in Italy the Fuku event has absolutely no coverage at all, nobody cares about it at any level. Recently, I discovered a friend of mine living in the Alps has a son working in Tokyo. When the quake hit, italian government withdraw ALL the connationals in a hurry from there. They stayed here in hospitals on average for two weeks, taking six blood tests a day. Then the employer company moved him to London for 6 months, but finally he choosed to return in Tokyo. Hospital personnel told his father that the levels of nuclear contamination were very, very high (textual, "altissimi"). But seemed to me that my friend told that like it was a funny story, he was not scared at all for his son.

    We'll meet in other threads, later on, I hope, dear AFTERSHOCK. I'll also keep you updated about the fight we are slowly but solidly organizing here. I think US movements like OccupyWS are only radical phenomena, not really organized structures, so doomed to failure. Also, we don't share their principles and tactics. Our fight is socio-political on a general level, of course, we cannot focus on specific themes like fuku, or we'll fall in radicalism ourselves. But the event – along with tropical deforestation and space/robotic industrialization – is one of the major motivational issues to me.
