Transcript

Koichi Oyama:

I’m Koichi Oyama, who is a city council member and today’s MC

Umesaburon Kotake:

I’m Umesaburon Kotake who is the president of this group

Koichi Oyama:

  • We have been working since last September to help protect people’s everyday lives in this city
  • Now it’s been 11 months since the earthquake and various problems have broken out
  • Level measured last September and measured again this February there, and it was found the radiation has been scattering
  • We are concerned this fact is unknown to people and we like to tell some serious news today
  • People are starting to forget about radiation, but actually it seems that the radioactive substances have been combining together at our foot
  • You tried the well heard idea that alpha rays can be even blocked by a piece of paper didn’t you?
  • We usually care about cesium with gamma rays but we could suspect that there are more kinds of radiation such as beta rays other than cesium. OK let us move on next.
  • So we are seriously wondering how much radiation has been spread
  • We’re working hard to examine the issue and we’d like some research institutions to do that
  • This contains very high radiation and there are a lot through out this city
  • Please don’t take action hastily
  • Please tell people with focus on that
  • Please don’t attempt to touch them
  • That’s what I’d like to emphasize
