    At this point, the names and occupations of all those responsible should be compiled, for use in human rights trials…

      I have been thinking the same thing, maybe working with C.A.N. for a most wanted list..or something.. for crimes against humanity, and all living organisms on Planet Earth.

      I think dart board..

        It has to be right. A list of impartial witnesses and traceable reports/documentation is required. If prosecutions are to hold-up in a court of international law, every effort must be made to ensure that evidence is unimpeachable. Now would be the time for someone out here to contact a known and credible war-crimes investigator for advice. They'll know what's needed. Next, you have to find some contacts in each of the countries (not just Japan) that can help in confirming reports and compiling this evidence. Again…it must be done by the book…

          Dr. Stein will be the keynote speaker at the C.A.N. Rally NO NUKES NO WAR!! / Occupy The NRC event. The afternoon will include a peaceful protest outside the NRC Headquarters and a public meeting inside the building if possible. This Rally will have a NO NUKES/NO WAR theme and is taking place on what the United Nations has designated as the International Day of Peace or “Peace Day”.

            Wouldn't it be nice if US citizens voted for Dr. Stein because she reflects their values rather than vote for the guy who doesn't cuz they are afraid that he might lose and an even worse guy wins? No good person will make the Presidency until they are voted in. As long as voters fall for the "the other guy is worse" myth, the two party corporate duopology laughs all the way to Wall Street and the White House.

      @AFTERSHOCK, Cataclysmic, … Greg Palast popped to mind. Checked his website – he's done some work on Fukushima but is a very busy guy, given the conditions of our politics and world. He needs the equivalent of a "Nader's Raiders" auxiliary.

        thank you Maggie. Greg Palast is one of the few journalist that I trust, without question. The man has always spoken truth to power…a great man…

    the japanese.guv were fans of sweat camps in wwII, i guess they just can't shake that concept. since they don't have their hands on some ethnicity, they choose to enslave the children and exploit them, like it's some kind of war time.

    seriously, this would not be legal in my nation, nor would it be accepted. it's abhorant. even for adults.

    even if adults were to be sent in to do the work, they'd be in full hazmat attire and be provided with mobile showers etc.

    woeful.

    Q? Why does de-commissioning take so long?
    A- Because the workers are dying and urinating blood.
    Q? Can't they pump all the water out and pump lots of oxygen in instead of nitrogen?
    A- The environment and others outside the plant will suffer, besides, there are too
    many fuel rods inside and some areas are already decontaminated.
    Q? Won't that cause a rapid burn of the material?
    A- Yes, they are burning nuclear waste anyway.
    Q? Is it safe and really necessary?
    A- If the building collapse or another strong earthquake comes, it might burn anyway.
    Q? Is it safe to leave things the way they are?
    A- No
    Q? Then why don't they do something now?
    A- Back to the first answer.
