Ms. Mari INOUE, Esq., Human Rights Now New York: Recommendation by [the United Nation's investigator] Mr. Grover will not be published until next summer. So it’s a long process and both of those processes are legally non-binding.

So how are we going to protect the rights of people, especially the right to health and life of people in contaminated area, because they need immediate assistance. They need immediate attention from medical communities and civil societies, because what’s going on in Fukushima is ongoing crisis.

    Wake up citizens in other countries. While you may think the Japanese governmental abuses in medicine would never happen in your country, perhaps in a time of martial law you may also be denied access to medical records, results, and examinations. Your own family nightmare is just one meltdown away from a similar fate.

  • Question: "How to protect the right to health and life of citizens from radiological contamination?"

    Answer: STOP building these Death Machines and decommission the existing ones as quickly and as safely as possible.

    :) It works… Guaranteed!

    Our rights are denied right now by not having appropriate testing and radiation detection systems in place that are effective.

    We are all under Fallout Attack and our 'shields' have failed.

    Governments and media brainwashing works so well.
    Even experts now talks about the health risks due to contamination for the region of Fukushima. While the risks are for a much larger and different area than Fukushima. Even experts sometime forget that there are health risk for people also living outside of Fukushima.
    Some of them also need immediate attention. It is also sad to discriminate for they risk not to be given the right attention.

      That's exactly what will happen in the U.S., dka.

      Step One: Don't give the public any means to monitor radiation levels or identify radionuclides *before* an accident. Just reassure them that a nuclear accident is impossible and the government will monitor radiation for them.

      Step Two: When the eventual accident happens, censor everything. Tell people that the radiation levels are really not that high. Make sure they are never told about plume size or directions. Order the media to publish only what the government tells them so the people don't panic.

      Step Three: Use the useless, arbitrary rings around a map of the plant to declare what areas are safe or not. Yell at anyone who claims to have been exposed to more radiation than their ring allows. Herd people to evacuation locations without regard to actual dispersion. Government convenience is more important than lives.

      Step Four: Don't test anyone for anything related to radiation. If you absolutely have to test someone, keep the results secret. Make sure people from the outside rings understand that they will never be eligible for any government medical aid.

      Step Five: Drag your feet for a year or so and do some token studies. Tell everyone you found nothing and nobody was harmed by the radiation. Claim that the middle rings are safe and people should move back.

      Step Six: Leave government for your highly-paid nuclear industry job.

    Doctors are helpless against leukemia and other deadly diseases caused by radiation.

    I find the rhetoric in use by this activist and others to be somewhat disingenuous. I do not think it it honest to refer to people as having 'rights' to this or that – health, protection, to a honest government, to a safe place to live. These are simply demands, not rights. The only right a person has is to take action in his or her favor.

    In this case that would have been preventative measures like evacuation, overthrow the government. Now the options are not so much different are they? Expecting things to turn out okay because you have a 'right' to health is just begging to be blindsided by a disaster.
