Fukushima Teacher Muzzled on Radiation Risks for School Children, Bloomberg by Takahiko Hyuga, July 28, 2011:

[... O]n a recent July morning, school children in Fukushima prefecture were taking off their masks and running around playgrounds in T-shirts, exposing them to a similar amount of annual radiation as a worker in a nuclear power plant.

Toshinori Shishido, a Japanese literature teacher of 25 years, had warned his students two months ago to wear surgical masks and keep their skin covered with long-sleeved shirts. His advice went unheeded, not because of the weather but because his school told him not to alarm students. Shishido quit this week.

“I want to get away from this situation where I’m not even allowed to alert children about radiation exposure,” said Shishido, a 48-year-old teacher who taught at Fukushima Nishi High School. [...]

Kiyoharu Furukawa, 57, assistant principal at Fukushima Nishi High: “I don’t think the children are safe either, and I know the radiation level is still high… These days, they are wearing short sleeves and no masks.”

    Some things are worth repeating.

    TEPCO & Japanese government treat their own citizens like they treated American POW’s in WW II – they make them do a forced DEATH MARCH! Like this they thin out the numbers – have less responsibility to assume for whatever still “stands”. These are worse then criminals – this is some kind of a new breed of Hitler holocaust making. It is an extermination policy in order to “purify” the race.

    Where is the FUKUM’ OUTRAGE in these Japanese death marched victims. Collect your children’s radioactive urine. Collect yours too. Pour it on all these higher ups whenever you can. Lay in ambush for them outside their places of work. They all follow routines. Get on a balcony and baptize these awful people. Fill balloons with your children’s/yours radioactive urine. Let them splash like “bombs” at their feet or on their heads. Splatter them. Humiliate them. Shame them. Do the same with your radioactive shit.

      LMFAO, too true.. If that sounds gross or absurd to anyone, maybe they should think about how absurd this whole situation is.. If the government fails to inform the people, it’s genocide..

    REVOLT NOW, <<<this is the message they don't want you to hear:

    ONLY revolution will work to get the correct and appropriate things done in a timely way–the powers that be hope you will forget and gradually come to believe preposterous lies if they are repeated often enough by pretty Ms. Kobiyashi in NHK. Otherwise, expect a wimpering, slinking away decrease in interest by “officials” in your questions and appropriate concerns. Little by little ANY efforts from the scum, at the top, responsible for your children’s collective irradiation (poisoning!) and dramatically shortened lives, will end–this is their entire– plan. I guarantee you! The scum at the tops of your own (and U.S.everywhere) hierarchies, corporate/military/covert/nuclear power industry all hope you’ll all just go away…will you please politely stop bothering them. They wish to enjoy their jobs which are all about not dealing with reality and helping the masses that can take THEIR lives, believe the lies they peddle. Nuclear power is always built on lies.
    Civilian commercial nuclear power plants are always unsafe. No commercial nuclear power plant is in any way, shape or form ever going to be safe. There would be no profit at all possible for any sort of investor if commercial civilian nuclear power generation were even remotely safe. Will you and other adults in Japan allow such pathetic, parasitic, and narcissistic cowards to slink into the shadows defending nuclear power and even attempting its promotion at your childrens’ expense? Do the Japanese care as little for their children as U.S. mindless masses, in general, do for their own–In the U.S. 99% of people believe all the lies about Fukushima and think it’s something in the past! That took about one month to accomplish for our slinking, arrogant, murderous scumbags at the top! Do the Japanese, like U.S. citizens, also wallow in the intellectual squalor and naivete, which a lack of basic critical thinking skills creates? Will the Japanese continue to, in the majority, defend the murderous and stupid prioritization of putting economics over doing the right thing in cataclysmic nuclear crisis as the filthy parasitic cowards at Tepco, GE, the Japanese and American executive branches admonish the rapidly poisoned Japanese people to do in this not so long “goodnight”?
    The right thing is to pull the guillotines out, sharpen their blades–I don’t mean this figuratively. Start killing off Tepco executives from the top. Proceed to Prime Minister Kan. Follow up then with your most pro-nuclear Diet members. Do not start LOW on the hierarchy. The little person is you. Aim for the top. That’s where ALL the power is until you take it away! Of course, parents of children with the cooperation of the technical giants in the industry can do a better job than politicians and executives worried about MONEY. This is what the cowardly scum at the top hope you will do. The little person, worker representative is not the responsible one in a decision making hierarchy where big dollars are involved; No, it is the TOP, focus your ire and ACTION–and there must be this, at the TOP!!!
    Use the guillotine until these spineless insects get the message that the people of Japan are not cowards. You who are being deeply, daily irradiated are in your millions; they are only in the dozens. Make it clear that those at the top will pay for every Japanese child they murder by radionuclide through their actions or lack of action.
    You can handle the truth! Without the truth about what’s happening, nothing will change! Your children will continue to be irretrievably poisoned and will be dying in ever rising numbers, this I guarantee, as a crescendo from the universe demanding that you do the right thing! What is the right thing? Chop from the top! Why? What’s the truth? The truth is, of course, obvious that Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl by many dozens to thousands of times and, under the current horrifyingly stupid decisions of cowardly, greedy and criminally culpable leaderships, Japanese children are being sacrificed as if there lives were garbage, like leaves of radioactive waste turned to compost emitting 77,000 bq/kg of radiation.
    The richest and highest in status quo hierarchies of power will protect themselves. How? Always by lying and always by deferring blame. They’ll keep you from revolting by dividing, and conquering. How many dead babies, children and other civilians of Japan will it take to have solidarity to rise together against these weak, cowardly ghouls? How can they be made to the tell the truth? Drag them into the streets. Do NOT settle for the “representative”. Make these and not poor homeless beggars from the street do the clean-up work with the same uniforms and lack of protection they are giving to the temporary workers. Even in the midst of crisis, these scum at the top, outrageously, are providing no labor protections whatsoever, proportionate to the risks.
    In the United States, there is a nearly complete news blackout about Fukushima for at least the past two months. Working people’s CHILDREN in Japan are being sacrificed so that spineless turds at the tops of our nuclear power parasitic cataclysmically poisonous hierarchies can save face and their very fat paychecks. They must be stopped. They must be stopped now! They must be stopped and their power replaced by civilian control of this clean-up process by any means necessary and IMMEDIATELY, for any progress to be realized in protecting your CHILDREN.
    Any president of ANY nuclear power plant in Japan that even begins to say that they are going to restart, particularly of those plants that had ANY problem related to the quake, should, by the PEOPLE, be dragged out into the street and beaten until they change their minds. Is there time to allow these moronic clowns to keep repeating the same stupid mistakes? CHOP FROM THE TOP, and do it now, as your children are being chopped by radionuclide contamination as if by the “TOP’S” own hand, when you do not stop them.

      Excellent post! I could not agree more.. The death of every single one of these parasitic piece of shit elite nuclear leeches and their government toolbags is nothing compared to the current and future calamities they are so eagerly trying to hide.. The death of each one of these traitors who are involved in this coverup and dis/misinformation campaign would not even be considered “an eye for an eye”.. These people could care less about ANYONE whose health is affected by this devastating disaster including even their very own families as long as they can still reap the benefits and make the big bucks. These fcuking fools are walking on their tippy-toes, doing everything they can to ensure that the truth remains a secret regardless of how many innocent human beings will suffer along the way.. The events at Fukushima are possibly of catastrophic proportions, and I’m thinking that i
