“Shocking”: Japanese Nuclear Emergency Director says local residents have no right to avoid radiation exposure -Gizmodo

Japanese Nuclear Emergency Director: You Have No Right To A Radiation-Free Life, Gizmodo by Andrew Tarantola, July 26, 2011:

This footage, from a recent meeting of indignant Japanese citizens and feckless Japanese government types should be a little shocking. Sadly, it’s just more of the same – ineptitude and inaction. By denying the right to avoiding radiation? OK, shocking. […]

One Fukushima resident asks, “As other people do, people in Fukushima have the right to avoid the radiation exposure and live a healthy life, too. Don’t you think so?”

A Nuclear Safety Commission Of Japan rep, when pushed to go beyond his canned non-answer, deadpans “I don’t know if they have that right.” The crowd reacts as you would expect when told they nuclear-threatened welfare isn’t a concern. […]

    Rioting in the streets may be just around the corner.

      Why wait? They have nothing left to lose. Anyone with any self respect would fight.

    This Director needs to move his family, children and all to Fukushima to show there is NO DANGER. Or evacute the citizens. But no surprise for the attitude–victims of the Atom Bomb were shunned, as well as victims of other nuclear disasters.

  • I really would have liked to have seen the people take that urine sample and throw it in that fat scum’s face. Then, let’s see if he would test it. That director is not human and should be removed of his position.

  • NoPrevarication NoPrevarication

    Sadly, I suspect that most of these people cannot afford to move and are having to witness the effects of radiation on their children. I thought the officials in the video looked as though they knew the situation was irremediable but couldn’t bring themselves to say so.

    How do we know that a similar situation does not exist in Nebraska and Missouri? There are far too many people in that area to move elsewhere. Many certainly could not afford to move. High radiation levels indicate that they are being exposed.

      Why do people in the media keep saying the worst crisis since Chernobyl?

      It’s because this minimises the seriousness of Fuku in sheeple minds.

      Oh, yeah Chernobyl, bit of an explosion in the Ukraine, long time ago, everything OK now, not realizing that there are places no-one can go to, deadly places with 2,000x normal background radiation after 25 years!

      This Fuku business is far far worse than Chernobyl. Chernobyl is not in the same league.

    Japanese are pet lovers, so THEY/we could talk about pets!
    i.e. Using “Pets” that shed and or have their hair come out…
    … Or having to take your pet to the Doctor
    … Or ???

    ALSO A MUST LISTEN…listening now

  • mikael

    Who is listening to that pice of crap, thats a list you can atribute to anything, a gun as an ex.
    Of course they belive we are druling idiots.
    Like the Gulf incident, the damages is there, but he is using the god old trick of see noe evil, hear no evil. And when a corupt system is justifying its action, they lie.
    A system that fabricates data and lied from from the begining, in the 50, a system that is so interconected that anything from them is questionable and based on previous fals reports its no problem to fabricate new “evidences”.
    Hell, they justlify their data whit other setts of fals data.
    That artickle is pure and unblemished bullshitt.
    It like walking up to a prest and ask, do god exist. Whats the answer, do you think.

    Then again as some sayed it, this nightmare senario is still in its birthfase.
    Its growing day by day, and what my conserns are iis when it sarts to apeare in the USA where people and animals is starting to sick in a scale that makes it to a reality and no longer hideable.
    Then I am afraid the radiation is gone beyound scales and will be far to late to do anything.
    Then what, HP. then what.

    Like Japan, USA wil be afected, it wil.
    Its just down to time, because the “vulvanos” are still spuwing radiation, day by day.
    It boils down to, whats the price we all have to pay in the end.

    Like the Russians they denied to the scale, denied and denied, and when the scale and damage done was to obvious, wel you know, that was the tippingpoit for the Sovjet empire, they fell on Tjernobyl.

    No this is getting wurse and wurse.
    It wil be a horible backfire. Because I try to look into the future and whit this ongoing fallout, the future like 4 monts aded to this, I dont even want to tink about, belive me, I wont.

    I feel deply sorry for the Japan people, that video was gruesom to watch, and the gov. face sayed it all, he mocked them and lookt at them with discrase, that look and the signals he sent is pore evil.
    Its sickening to watch, when we know, as the people og Japan knows, they are fighting for their lifes and their homeland is gone “forever”.

    People of Japan, you are running out of Time now. And I wil not ridicule them the people of Fukoshima area, they just dont get any respons, any respons.

    “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”

      Interesting comment you wrote. why do you think it is getting worst in the USA? Do you have past experience or data that leads you to believe the USA is getting worst?

      • ali-ali-al-qomfri ali-ali-al-qomfri

        Many more nukers in USA, equally corrupt (or same system). When a toilet leaks water all night/all day, only a little bit will accumulate over time, then when the bill comes, you are surprised to see how much leaked.
        well FUKU is leaking more than just water.

    I cannot believe the Japanese are going to tax the people at all for this:

    Next will be fury, with closed fists once they learn that they are being killed according to the plans of the New World Order. The leaders of that ‘NWO’ are in the UK.

    It’s as old as humanunkind.

    The Bhagavad Gita taught the lowest caste people, the dolit, the untouchables, that it was bad karma to try to raise themselves to a higher caste. Age old moral: shut up and take what you get!

    I remember throwing the Bhagavad Gita across the room when I read that 40 years ago.

  • bigisland bigisland

    Like human displacement during the dirty 30tys dust bowl in America (involving 5 million folks over a decade 1940 -1970), folks need to pack up and move by foot if they need AWAY. Yet, time is cut very short and where does one go when on an island???

    Good question,..one of our posters last week said that if she lived in Japan,..she’s tie bamboo together to make a raft and shove off. And I believe she was only partially joking.
    I’ll re-post something someone posted weeks ago:

    I’m gonna assume people have read the webbot report by Cliff High. Or this gem from the Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation concise as it is….
    You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell people this is the Hour.
    And there are things to be considered…………….
    Where are you living?
    What are you doing?
    What are your relationships?
    Where is your water?
    Know your garden
    It is time to speak your truth.
    Create your community.
    Be good to each other.
    And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
    Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said.
    “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold onto the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
    Know the River has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.
    And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
    The time of the lone wolf is over, gather yourselves!
    Banish the word struggle from your vocabulary.
    All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
    We are the ones We’ve been waiting for!

    I would have made this guy swallow all the radioactive urine until he cries for his life. Japanese people are often way too nice. This is the problem with Japan, it’s mislead by a bunch of cowards and chicken hawks bureaucrats who are destroying all that is beautiful about Japan. It’s time for a revolution. Seriously.

  • jonjon

    Oh and let’s not forget they are too busy destroying the rest of Japan with useless highways, bridges, roads, sea walls, concreted river banks etc… that they can’t allocate any resource to help out and displace people in the affected zone.
