WHAT IS FUKUSHIMA LIKE, 8 YEARS AFTER THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR DISASTER? HAVE ANY LESSONS BEEN LEARNED? 


The Fukushima nuclear disaster: 8 years on
Eight years after the world’s most complex nuclear disaster, the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants and spent fuel ponds are still leaking and dangerous, vast amounts of contaminated water continue to accumulate, 8000 odd clean-up workers labour daily and will need to for many decades, the needs of people exposed to radioactivity are still neglected, no one is in prison for a disaster fundamentally caused by the negligence of the operator and the government, and most of the lessons of Fukushima have yet to heeded.

Professor Kiyoshi Kurokawa, who chaired the Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission, Japan’s first ever independent parliamentary investigation commission, has written recently that since the Commission submitted its recommendations to the national Diet in 2012, “little progress of significance can be observed”.[1] He describes the regulatory changes as “only amounting to cosmetic changes”. This textbook case of regulatory capture, with Japanese nuclear regulatory agencies serving the interests of the nuclear power industry instead of protecting the safety of the people, has changed relatively little. Kurokawa describes the changes prompted by the Commission’s report amongst governmental bodies “have been formalities at the minimum required level”. He writes “that the structures of regulatory capture are still firmly maintained”.

It is the people of Japan who not only suffer the impacts of the disaster, but largely bear the cost, such as through the US$119 billion interest-free loan TEPCO secured from the government, paid by citizens’ taxes.

In light of the mainly indirect but strong evidence that radioactivity began leaking from Unit 1 as a result of the earthquake, before the tsunami hit, the Commission recommended that the implications should be seriously considered for all other nuclear power plants in Japan. This has not happened. Since 2011, 9 nuclear power reactors in Japan have been re-started. One can have little confidence, should things go wrong again in Fukushima or elsewhere, that crisis management would be much better than in the debacle that unfolded in Fukushima 8 years ago.

THE FORGOTTEN VICTIMS 




The Forgotten Victims of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster


RETURNING TO FUKUSHIMA IN 2016


Returning to Fukushima after the disaster (2016) | Foreign Correspondent

DOCUMENTARY MOVIE; WELCOME TO FUKUSHIMA - 2013

If you can find this movie, it is well worth watching. This is the only small piece of it that AGR could find in 2020. 

Documentary Welcome to Fukushima By Alain de Alou - Director - Belgium

Translate by clicking on settings, auto translate then pick language for captions in your language. 

In part one, a resident who lives near the Fukushima disaster site talks about how she called medical facilities both locally and across Japan and tried to get internal radiation testing and radiation testing of food. Residents were denied this testing at ALL medical facilities, despite them having this equipment. 

So, in response this citizen set up his own radiation testing equipment and started a non profit organization to provide the radiation testing to citizens who wanted this kind of service." 

This documentary cannot be found anywhere, so it is being assumed it has been censored and removed from the web.
