- Katsutaka Idogawa, former mayor of Futaba, Fukushima Prefecture: I’d like to show you a table with radiation levels around Chernobyl. Radiation levels [for evacuation] around Fukushima are four times higher than in Chernobyl, […] Exposing people to the current levels of radiation in Fukushima is a violation of human rights. It’s terrible. […] In many cases, evacuees are forced to return.

- Idogawa: I’m really ashamed for my country, but I have to speak the truth for the sake of keeping our planet clean in the future. […] The same thing happened with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The authorities lied to everyone. They said it was safe. They hid the truth. That’s the situation we are living in.
