Ayaka and her family were forced to flee when their home was destroyed in the earthquake and tsunami which devastated parts of Japan in early 2011, killing about 16,000 people. They live outside the 20km (12 mile) exclusion zone surrounding the failed nuclear plant at Fukushima Daiichi, but they still have to live with increased radiation levels which impact their lives. Ayaka is one of several seven to 10-year-old survivors who talk about how their lives have changed forever in BBC Two's Japan - Children of the Tsunami on Thursday 1 March 2012 at 2000GMT
WORST NUCLEAR SEA CONTAMINATION - Fukushima...Gilty of world sea contamination 世界最悪の海洋汚染の罪 AlJazeera English 2011/11/29ビデオより。
A new report shows the Fukushima disaster is responsible for the world's worst nuclear sea contamination. During the peak of Chernobyl, the Black Sea was registering 1,000 becquerels per cubic meter of water - at Fukushima's peak, it was 100,000 becquerels. Scientists first believed the ocean would dilute it, but Al Jazeera has learned that dangerous concentrations of radioactive caesium remain. Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports from Fukushima, Japan.
NOVEMBER 17, 2011 Fukushima: Japanese fisheries face a chronic radioactive contamination / Fukushima : la pêche nippone face à une contamination radioactive chronique
"Fukushima: Japanese fishing against radioactive contamination chronic"/ « Fukushima : la pêche nippone face à une contamination radioactive chronique »
Like the Japanese farmers, fishermen are now again at the forefront in the fight against chronic radioactive poisoning of part of the population of the rising sun. At the agricultural pollution of biocides and other heavy metals (Pb, Hg, Cd, etc.). Adds another long-term radioactive contamination. Some people remember the tragedy of Minamata non-nuclear in 1956 (mercury), Toyama in 1946 (cadmium), the dumping of barrels of nuclear waste, radioactive contamination of long-term South Pacific by the many explosions of air 40-60 years and more recently the French tests at Mururoa completed by the President French at the time, Jacques Chirac.
Statements for the less courageous and very responsible for Mr. Takehiko Niitsuma, fisherman Iwaki, have attracted the attention of Japan's northeast.
Especially qu'Iwaki and industrial area are so close to the site of Fukushima Daiichi.
Range of Iwaki (Fukushima Prefecture) before the tsunami on 11 March
Some would say that this fisherman knows nothing and that radioactivity levels are safe. Others will say again that it is totally outrageous and stupid to listen to a poor Japanese fisherman. They are free to think that! But doubt their reactions, the day themselves and their families have to eat every day a piece of beef to Americium-241 Technetium-99 in powdered sauce Cesium-137! Bon appetite!
In short, this is serious fisherman and his attitude is exemplary citizen and his decision not to distribute food contaminated even slightly - especially since the measurements are unreliable - especially since the standards are reviewed upward by political or financial concerns - especially as a relativism settled gradually. The ethical conduct of the fisherman (by the way), we hope so, the entire industry to a more responsible attitude with regard to the biotic resources of the oceans. We believe, in particular, ruthless hunting of whales for scientific reasons invoked ...
An essential milestone in the history of the South Pacific
All the Japanese people vividly remembers the 40-60 years that were the scene of many atmospheric nuclear tests in the Pacific. For the record, 1 March 1954, Operation CASTLE BRAVO, a hydrogen bomb with an energy of 15 megatons (1000 times that of Hiroshima!) Blew off the island NAM. The cloud rose to 40,000 feet and reached a diameter of about 100 km. BRAVO was the largest trial ever conducted by the United States, with an output 2.5 times higher than expected. It was also the worst radiological disaster in American history. A 136 km northeast of the point of bursting, the Japanese ship Daigo Fukuryu Maru 第五福竜丸 was so covered with fallout that the 23 crew members fell ill, the radio operator Aikichi Kuboyama 久保山愛吉 died Sept. 23. A similar accident occurred on a Japanese fishing boat and Sanjiro Masoud was severely contaminated by nuclear fallout. After the disaster, the exclusion zone around the trial of Operation CASTLE was enlarged, representing 1% of the total land area of the globe. The Bikini Atoll is still uninhabitable today due to the contamination of land by the Cs-137. After the explosion, the Japanese fisheries have been destroyed over 100 tonnes of fish caught in the radioactive waters of the Pacific.
死の駅伝 The Ekiden of death ...

福島県の決定により開催されている。 The decision of the authorities of the prefecture of Fukushima, the most affected by the nuclear crisis, maintain the traditional Ekiden (駅伝, a relay race, from this time from 3 to 10 km, for a total of 42.195 kilometers, the distance d a marathon) of high school students, is at least questionable. Adolescents from 17 prefectures (Tohoku, but also in Tokyo and Yamanashi) are at the 27th edition of the competition this Sunday, November 13 in and around the city of Fukushima.
イベントは、サンケイスポーツの支援を受けて、東北・福島のテレビ局と陸上競技連盟が主催するだけでなく、トヨタ、JR東日本鉄道とミズノが支援。 The event is organized by the Athletics Federation of Television and Tohoku Fukushima, with the support of the daily Sankei Sports, but also Toyota, Citizen of the railway company and the supplier JR East Mizuno.
9月に担当者達は、放射能による危険性はないと主張した。 In September, the organizers claimed that the radiation represented no danger. They furthermore have measured the levels of radioactive contamination along the route. According to them, they exceeded a microsieverts per hour but were on the downside. The city has committed itself to decontaminate Shinobugaoka course, start and finish of the race.
"何か起こった場合、それは【主催者】の責任ではない"と選手に署名させた！ Under these conditions, why these same organizers, according to some sources, asked all the girls to sign a release stating "If anything happens, it will not be our responsibility?" Surprising to compete very popular in Japan and whose very essence is to give strength and good health. Also surprising given that those most vulnerable to radiation are the youngest.
致命的な駅伝 Deadly Ekiden ... It is strange to see That Fukushima Prefecture Authorities Decided to Maintain ITS traditionnal junior high school and high school Ekiden (駅伝, a traditionnal long-distance relay in Japan). So the 27th edition has-been Held on November 13th in and around Fukushima city, one of the MOST radiation Affected city. Girls from 17 prefectures (Tohoku From aussi goal from Tokyo) are Participating.
イベントは、トヨタ、ミズノ、JR東日本鉄道と市民の支援を受けて、福島テレビと東北体育協会が主催しています。 The event IS Organised by Tohoku Athletic Association, Along With Fukushima TV, with the support of Toyota, Mizuno, JREast (Railway Company) and Citizen.
担当者は、放射線の危険性を言及していない！ People in charge are not say a radiation hazard. In September, the air THEY Measured radiation level Along the course, and Said it is over a microsievert per hour maximum and That It Is trending down. Fukushima City Decided to decontaminate the Shinobugaoka rentals Including Athletic Field Which starts and finishes the Ekiden.
最も放射線に弱いのは【中高生の選手】子供達である！ Based On That, why, After sources Organisers ask girls to sign a statement if Saying There Is a problem, It Is not Their responsability? It's strange for a competition That Is Supposed to be good for health. Because It Is Also The Most strange persons vulnerable to radiation are children.
*from RT ↓ 全文： The British media say Israel may launch an aerial strike on Iranian nuclear facilities as early as next month. The offensive will receive support from the US, the speculation goes. The attack is meant to decapitate Iran's nuclear program, which a recent report by the UN atomic watchdog said may have a military component. The Daily Mail cites British government sources as saying that the cabinet expects Israel to attack Iran "sooner rather than later."
"We're expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the New Year," a Foreign Office source is cited as saying. The operation will receive logistical support from the United States, the newspaper reports. US President Barack Obama will allegedly have to back Israel to secure Jewish-Americans' votes for the upcoming presidential election. Earlier, the Guardian newspaper reported that the Ministry of Defense is drawing up contingency plans for Britain's participation in a joint military operation against Iran. The report said such an attack would be carried out by Israel and probably the US after the presidential election in America. The Daily Mail cites its sources as saying that Whitehall currently rules out Britain's direct involvement in an attack on Iran. The International Atomic Energy Agency released a report on Wednesday which included allegations that Iran had been developing technology related to nuclear weapons before 2003 and may still be doing so. Tehran called the accusations politically motivated and based on lies. It refused to step back from its nuclear program, which it insists is purely civilian in nature. Iran's supreme leader, the Ayatollah Khomeini, has warned both the United States and Israel that if they strike Iran, they must expect a "tough, harsh response" from Tehran. "We are not a nation to sit back and watch materialistic, corrupt and rotten powers threaten Iran. We will respond with a strong slap and an iron fist," he said. Khomeini also spoke about "aggressors and invaders being smashed from within." On Wednesday, the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad slammed an IAEA report, saying that Iran would not step back one iota from developing its nuclear program. The report was relying on baseless US claims that Iran was building a nuclear bomb, he added. A number of international players called for further sanctions against Iran following the report -- both through the UN Security Council and at national level. Speculation that Israel is preparing to attack Iranian nuclear sites surged in the media shortly before the IAEA report was released, as the allegations contained in it had been leaked in advance. Officially, Israel has neither confirmed nor denied such plans, but said military action against Iran is on the table and is more likely in the wake of the report. Iran said it would retaliate if attacked and named Israeli nuclear facilities among the possible targets.
Fukushima reactor accident in Japan, there could be a nuclear explosion. It would be "a kind of mini-nuclear bomb in the scale," warns the Munich Radiation expert Lengfelder. 日本の福島原発事故は、核爆発の可能性も有る。”小型原爆の様な規模”になるだろうとミュンヘンの放射線専門家レングフェルダー教授が語った。
Given the reports of an uncontrolled nuclear fission reactor accident in Japan's Fukushima Munich radiation expert Professor Edmund Lengfelder warns of the possibility of a nuclear explosion. It would be "a kind of mini-nuclear bomb in the scale," said Lengfelder. "The probability, however, I can not estimate at all." Because nobody knows how much enriched uranium as coalesced into how the derelict nuclear power plant units.
Lengfelder had after the meltdown at Chernobyl 25 years ago the Society for Radiological Protection and the Munich-based Otto Hug Radiation Institute. He cared for people with thyroid cancer today in the former Soviet disaster area.
Eight months after the meltdown in Fukushima are now the radio isotopes 133 and 135 of the gas xenon has been found, said Lengfelder. Since these isotopes are products of nuclear fission and only have a half life of about five days and nine hours, they could not come from the time of the accident in March. "There is a spontaneous fission -. Because anything can happen, even if one says, it is not likely, but what is to be kept of statements about probabilities, we have seen on 11 March." At that time, had a severely damaged in this earthquake and unexpected strength of a tsunami and the nuclear power plant caused the meltdown.
In a functioning reactor control rods through the chain reaction would be kept under control. "But it is this control in a meltdown so no longer," said Lengfelder.
Tepco has apparently not in the position control 東電は、明らかに制御出来ていない。 As for the actual radiation exposure was given the total load since the accident, the recent nuclear fission is not of great importance. "But it does mean that (the operator) Tepco even further than previously claimed from it is to get things under control." How long such a nuclear fission, was not foreseen. Depending on the amount and location of the fissile uranium, it could also last for years - and the quantity in Fukushima is very large, it go to tons.
In any case, the partial exclusion zone of 50 km is far too low. You must be at least 100 kilometers in the main northwest. In addition, the Japanese government has raised the limit for children to 20 millisieverts per year. "This is in Germany the maximum radiation dose for a nuclear power plant workers - but not for a child," criticized Lengfelder. It is expected that the cancer rate will rise sharply in the children, including birth defects in newborns are to be feared.
Treatment of the population "inhumane" ”住民の人権を蹂躙する扱い” The treatment of the population was "inhumane," said Lengfelder. "For me, it is also inhumane, that in such a wealthy country like Japan, people are still living in gymnasiums. That was not even on the Soviets." The evacuation after Chernobyl have worked much better - and the limits are in Belarus today about three times more severe than in Germany.
Among the volunteers who have used the operator Tepco to clean up in Fukushima, it would be premature deaths in the coming years. "Chernobyl must proceed in analogy to one of them. But I'm skeptical that they will have more clarity on the Japanese as victims in the Soviet Union." The Japanese government had lied to the people of Japan and the world about the extent of the disaster long. "Japan wants its technical aura not to bet on the game." Now we have the Japanese people decide whether they wanted to live with this risk the threat continues.
Lengfelder is for an immediate shutdown of all reactors. "When they are not properly insured, it means in the case of a super-Gaussian: The citizen is sitting on his claim until we had Chernobyl, now we have Fukushima - what we need."
For example, there are the words of the Lengfelder because of safety concerns from environmentalists vehemently criticized Czech Temelin nuclear power plant across the Bavarian border, serious problems with the welds. "If there happens a meltdown, and the wind blows from the east, may extend the exclusion zone to Munich."
THE COMPLAINT A PETITION, CALLING FOR THE IMMEDIATE STOP, SIGNED ALSO BY BIANCA JAGGER,
"The radioactive debris ended up in Tokyo Bay" The government is taking away from Fukushima "放射性瓦礫は、東京湾で埋められる" 政府が福島から離れた地方に移動させる!
The mothers are afraid of Tokyo. "Our children are in danger, the whole of Japan is in danger." In recent weeks the government of new Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda gave reasonably available to the rubble caused by the earthquake-tsunami of 'March 11 are burned or buried across the country. It is an immense task - given that the earthquake combined with the 'flood wave has generated something like 2.38 billion tons of rubble in the north-east of the country (data from the Ministry of' Environment Japan) - which will last until 2014. Not so much the amount of these ruins, which is frightening because what they contain those from Fukushima Prefecture, the most affected by radioactivity emitted by the Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, still the scene of a difficult struggle to rein in the reactors damaged eight months ago . The mothers of Tokyo are afraid because the authorities have already agreed to dispose of one thousand tons of debris transported by train to the different cities of the incinerators. The residues end up in landfill in Tokyo Bay. And that's just the 'beginning: in the future will be at least 500 000 tons of debris that will pass from the capital for treatment. "A decision that terrorizes the local population, despite little or no official information - says Masahiro Tominaga, one of the signatories of a petition addressed to the public because the Japanese government to review its decisions -. The radioactivity in Tokyo has already increased. All 'we could not begin to explain why they were in different neighborhoods high concentrations of cesium-137. It is now clear: it is a consequence of the treatment of radioactive rubble. " Recent surveys, in fact, had found a hundred times the presence of particles larger than normal, but the government had minimized. "The fumes of the treatment - says Masahiro Tominaga - until they arrived back in Kyushu." Fukushima, Year Zero. Just yesterday, the 'Institute of Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety (Irsn) reported a concentration of cesium-137 that is 27 million billion becquerels in' ocean in front of the nuclear power plant, twenty times the quantity approved in June by TEPCO, the company criticatissima reactors under its management. Not only. The disaster may have been released in Fukushima 'atmosphere twice the radiation than stated by the Japanese authorities, according to a study published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. Now, while admitting that the reactors are now under control (there are still many doubts, not least because much of the fuel would be in a state of fusion), the government's decision to dispose of the radioactive debris is likely to generate new sources of pollution. "This way - explains the 'nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen American - you are recreating a new Fukushima: the radioactivity in the back' atmosphere '. "The problem - reads the letter released also to 'abroad, so that was among the first signatories Bianca Jagger - is not limited to the Tokyo area, which is geographically close to the impact of the disaster areas. The Minister of 'Environment, Mr. Hosono said, September 4th, 2011 at a press conference that "it is the intention of the national government share the pain with all of Fukushima in Japan" ... If you decide to follow the other prefectures' example of Tokyo, the areas that have not been affected by the oil spill will see their land and ground water soaking of pollutants.

＜English subtitle: Junebloke ＞ << English translation in all >>
The leader of S.D.Party, Ms.Fukushima: "We heard that many of Geiger Counters have been stuck at the Narita Airport and not been dispatched yet."
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto; "The government dispatched the Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO and other prefecture and agencies related. "
Ms.Fukushima: So, you say, it has been dispatched to Fukushima and others, haven't it ?
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto; "The government dispatched the Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO and other prefecture and agencies related basically... "
Ms.Fukushima: Mr.Muto! I'd like to confirm that the government dispatched the all Geiger Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO, right?
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto; The government already dispatched the all Geiger Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO.
The leader of S.D.Party, Ms.Fukushima: "We heard that many of Geiger Counters have been stuck at the Narita Airport and not been dispatched yet."
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: "The government dispatched the Geiger Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO and others.."
The leader of S.D.Party, Ms.Fukushima: The government already dispatched to them the 31,000 Counters imported from USA. Is it correct ?
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: The government dispatched the 31,000 Counters to SDF and TEPCO and others already...
The leader of S.D.Party, Ms.Fukushima: We confirmed to TEPCO that they do not receive the counters yet! They will plan to receive it from the government in future. Which mean, you have not dispatched it yet, haven't you ?!
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: Well... It will be planed dispatching...
Ms.Fukushima: The reason for the question is why the government have not yet dispatched to them the Geiger counters imported from many countries as free of charge.
Chairman : Mr.Muto, you should speak briefly due to limited time!
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: Well.... We imported the counters on 10 April..then, moved it to the warehouse... Well... we have not confirmed if TEPCO received it or not...
Ms.Fukushima: Mr.Muto! You said earlier, the government dispatched the Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO. But, now you say, it will be planed dispatching. It is difference, isn't it ?!"
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: "I'm sorry.. We imported the counters in April, but.... we will plan to dispatch it..."
Ms.Fukushima: Where are plan to dispatch ? How many counters do you still have at the warehouse?
Foreign Gov. Deputy Director-General, Mr.Muto: I'm sorry... We are not sure which is plan... ...and how many counters already dispatched....
Ms.Fukushima: Mr.Muto! You said earlier, the government dispatched the Counters to Fukushima and TEPCO. But, now you say, it will be planed dispatching. The most important is the people needed the Geiger counter are able to use now! BUT, you just leave it all since early April !! Mr.Muto! You still have got many many Geiger counters left at the airport warehouse, haven't you?!
Chairman " Well... PLS stop writing note for conference."
* Chairman asked other officer of other dep. Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Due to lack of explanation of Mr.Muto.
