Breaking News: Children as waste disposal

“You are making the children waste disposal!”

A mother yelled at the mayor of Yokohama city,Hayashi Fumiko.

Yokohama city government held an emergency press conference last weekend to detect hot spots around the city center.

The highest figure was over 40,000 Bq/kg,which was measured from dirt beside a street ditch.

However,9/21/2011,Yokohama city council turned down all the petitions from mothers.

Mayor of Yokohama city ,Hayashi Fumiko ignored her yelling and left the room.

The petitions were for:

  • not letting students visit hot spots in North Japan for their school trip,such as Nikko etc
  • Conduct urine test for students who had cesium beef of school lunch

  • Punish city government staff who arranged contaminated food for school lunch.(Currently,domestic beef is served for school lunch but Australian beef is served for the city government’s cafeteria. )


    Having released the data of hot spots,Yokohama city government has reluctantly ordered to decontaminate schools ,kindergarten and nursery school.

    However,because of the crucial lack of the knowledge,staff of those institutions decontaminate even without masks and gloves.

    Yesterday,a citizen detected over 100,000 Bq/kg from the dirt on the roof of a building near the center of the city. (about 10 minutes by car from my place)

    Now that even secondary exposure is expected,nobody pays attention to the students in Yokohama city government.

    Students are forced to march to the death.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
