Tokyo Press Conference: Gov’t is committing crimes against humanity; Fukushima children living in war zone and can’t leave — Childhood cancer developing much faster than Chernobyl; Rate now 14 times higher — Parent: “I’m revealing the reality of what’s going on… it’s only way to get rid of the criminals” (VIDEO)

Press Conference at The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan, August 18, 2014:

Toshio Yanagihara, attorney representing Fukushima children and their parents

  • 5:00 — Thyroid cases after Chernobyl in Belarus — comparing that with the present situation in Fukushima, [here] there’s 14 times [the rate] of children with thyroid cancer.
  • 6:00 — Fukushima prefecture’s announced that the massive number of thorough screenings [is the reason why there’s] more numbers of people with cancer — but we found that doubtful. In Fukushima prefecture, the west part of Fukushima compared to those areas that are closer to the nuclear power plant, there are about ¼ or even 1/5 the people who are found with thyroid cancer.
  • 7:00 — June 10th of this year, the Fukushima committee in charge of researching thyroid cancer admitted for the first time that the suspicion of malignancy is due to the lymph node metastasis. This is the common thing that was found after the Chernobyl accident.
  • 8:00 — In Fukushima right now, we see that the number of the children found with thyroid cancer — and the scale of this catastrophe is ongoing — it is going much faster than it was in the Ukraine after Chernobyl.
  • 11:45 — The announcement from the Sendai high court from April 2013 that the Fukushima children’s lives are threatened… this didn’t cause Fukushima or the Japanese government to help provide support.
  • 16:15 — We emphasis that the Japanese government is discriminating against the Fukushima children, and in the international [court], we can say this is a crime against humanity. This is Japan’s most important and most criminal human problem that we’re facing right now.
  • 17:15 — Fukushima is a war zone, and children have a right to be evacuated to a safer place… In Japan, this present situation is the most harsh child-rearing situation in the world.
  • 19:15 — They’re supposed to support and evacuate children from Fukushima during this war zone… It must be argued at the international court that this is a crime against humanity. We would like to take this case to the International Criminal Court, and we’re preparing for that.

Katsumi Hasegawa, parent of two young children who evacuated from Koriyama (60km from Daiichi)

  • 22:45 — We currently live in Shizouka prefecture where we evacuated to in August 2011 — my pregnant wife and 5 year-old son… Why did the Japanese government contain us in the no-go zone 20 or 30 km radius, while many foreign countries had told residents within 80 km from Fukushima Daiichi to evacuate?
  • 35:00 — I’m a parent of children, and I’m an adult whose living at the time of this accident — this era. I would like to reveal the reality of what is going on. And I would like to do my best, even if I’m starting right now, I would like to do my best. That is my responsibility, and that is the only way to get rid of the criminals — and irresponsibility that we have committed already… Even though raising my voice is hard, I know that there are things that we need to do. Thank you.
  • 36:30 — Lucy Birmingham, FCCJ president: Thank you so much. OK… wow.

    I am shocked to see that no one has replied to the links of the 5 part video I provided up above. People here seek solutions to this and other nightmares, and the solution is hidden in plain site. At least give it 5 minutes of your precious time, and I it would be nice if you were to mention your thoughts here. Even if you have never posted here before, nothing holding you back.

    Zeitgeist – The Movie: Federal Reserve (Part 5 of 5)

    This applies to all central banks around the world, as it these banksters that own the world.

    "If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered. ”

    Thomas Jefferson

    The Federal Reserve is a privately owned bank, which got it's start in 1913. In less than 20 years they bankrupted the US. Homeless is what will happen for all!

    • itsanuclearwar

      Look at what they have done already. All depressions/recessions are due to the FED, as are the manufactured bubbles. How many were played into buying houses that were artificially priced, only to loose their house. That is just one way the banksters did it, when you understand how it works you will believe what Jefferson said that all Americans will end up homeless here in Amerika. There is no other way as long as we allow central banking. All it takes to defeat them is for you to get off your ass and watch 30 minutes of video and inform spread the word, and then they are finished. Nuclear, codex, fluoride, income tax, all finished. That is when we hold these traitors and psychopaths to account. This is what those bastards are deathly afraid of, the public armed with this knowledge, knowledge hidden in plain site.

        itsanuclearwar, many people know about the bankers already. Would you bring them to the Hague? Make a citizens arrest? The people IN POWER are the corrupt ones. There is no authority to take the criminals to, as far as I can tell. Wolves guard the hen-house. Untold millions are spent on figuring out public psychology…you are just a miniscule detail in an algorithm. Dealt with if need be, but it wont be necessary. Keep up the fight though, its good for the blood

        • itsanuclearwar

          Many people know something about the FED. Many more know nothing. There is much more to this video than explaining the FED. Its kinda like this, the emperor has no clothes on. A few no this, but no one else will listen, they think they know it all and can't be bothered. If enough people realized that the emperor had no clothes and made enough noise, the rest would listen and realize he has no clothes. He would be done because no one will support him any more. Without the peoples support, he is nothing.

          That is exactly what we have here. We the people is what supports the 1% and/or TPTB. without that support they are nothing, their house of cards crumbles. The wolves will see how bad they have been fucked over buy the sickos, and will not protect them but will more than likely lynch them.

          You have to watch the video in order to understand all that it has to offer. 30 FUCKING MINUTES! How much time do you spend here at enenews going over the same stuff over and over again. Has any of that time done anything at all as far as turning the tide against TPTB? What is your idea of fixing this nightmare we are dying. This is the best if not only chance that we have. I would not waste my time on this whatsoever if I didn't believe this. I haven't heard anyone else come up with anything that sounds like a good idea. For you to write this off without even looking at it is ass nine. So be it, remain willfully ignorant and be damned for idiocy. 30 fucking minutes to tear

            you away from your favorite soap opera. Yea it is looking hopeless from here. I better stop here before I say what I really think, other than, go back to sleep, there is something to that useless eaters thing after all, maybe I should try and mix with the psychopaths, maybe I'm not seeing the BIG PICTURE, letting morals and ethics get in my way and expecting something like reasonableness out of others. Hoping for the sun to explode ending it all for the banksters too. Be done with it and save a lot of suffering for most due in part to ignorance, willful ignorance.

              "None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

              Must like being a slave because nothing is done to end the enslavement. If it were a snake it would have bit you, and you would remain clueless as to what a snake was and try and comfort the diamond back. What was the definition of insanity again?

            itsanuclearwar…I have watched and enjoyed the zeitgeist movie. We have mentioned it several times here on ENEnews. You make a mistake when you assume I or others write it off. I like that you are fervent. I just dont happen to believe that you can sway the public or that public knowledge will take away the power from the elite. I mean its worth TRYING…look at Kevin Blanch….do you like his videos? Did you see the old movie the Time Machine? You can try to stop people walking willingly to be eaten by the warlocks, but they wont listen. Ive tried to talk to people and family but has been utterly futile. I do think the house of cards will fall. Within everything exists the seeds of its own destruction…

            • itsanuclearwar

              Thanks for being honest. Don't need to tell me about people that wont listen, I know exactly how that goes. I do think that if we have a chance, that this video might be the wild card. It sure wouldn't hurt to encourage others to watch it though, for many reasons, all of them good. Negative talk about it does not help our cause at all though. If it has been a long time since watching it, probably wouldn't hurt to refresh ones mind. There is so much info there no one could remember it all. I know because I've been there.

              Am open to other suggestions, at this point I think its the best we have.

                I've seen it too itsnuclear- it's good to try to get folks to wake up…but I feel like Code…at this point I realize no one wants the truth (I still try to give it to them though).

              • ocifferdave

                Make informing the uninformed about the Federal Reserve (a raw source of wars and financial corruption that feeds the proliferation of nuke plants the world over) something fun.

                Attract busy bees with honey.

                Fun? I dabbled in 2013 with card, dice, and board game making via a website where you can create, upload, and publish your own games for free. Great community of helpful fellow table top enthusiasts (think Will Wheaton types).


                Creating this game (and others) was my escape from doom and gloom, but I still came to Enenews everyday. I even got the most community votes in a micro game competition for this game (but the judges didn't find it fun enough to give it 3rd place even…I rushed the concept to meet a deadline).

                Their cards come in different sizes. You can even make your own postcards and send them straight from their site (or to your house first) with eye catching messages to student governments all around the Pacific Rim. Ron Paul had a massive strong college following. It's a gold mine. Mine it!

      I've seen this video in the past. Very informative and unfortunately… very true.
