Fukushima Municipality Heads Concerned Over Lifting of Evacuation Advisory

Fukushima, Sept 25th –   Heads of five municipalities in Fukushima Prefecture affected by the ongoing nuclear crisis have aired concerns over the government’s plan to lift its evacuation advisory in the event of an emergency, saying not enough has been done to ensure the safety of residents.

In recent interviews with Kyodo News, the chiefs of the five local governments said they were especially worried about the cleanup of radioactive substances released from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi plant and the disposal of radioactive waste. The Fukushima Daiichi plant, the source of the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, suffered massive damage due to the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

The advisory covers the entire town of Hirono and parts of Naraha, the village of Kawauchi, and the cities of Tamura and Minamisoma, where roughly 59,000 residents have been told to be prepared to evacuate or remain indoors in the event of an emergency. About 25,000 have evacuated.  From Kyodo News

This of course goes against the Minister of the Environment Goshi Hosono’s wishes to bring back all those defenseless residents, whom have been repeatedly given hopes to return. Hosono did not care to get the facts straight beforehand and did not assess this crisis accurately before making such a bold promess … a promess he will not keep … a promess that will further cause great sadness and stress to residents of these municipalities. Hososno should resign and spend the rest of his life apologizing to them.

  2. Scientist from Chernobyl, arrested and lost position to tell the truth: “Bandajevski’s opinion that hiding the real level of the consequences of the Tchernobyl disaster [and] to take the necessary measures to protect the public health is immoral “.

    Not protecting the public in Fukushima today is, as he said, IMMORAL!
