Local gov pay for the fake comments “I want to go home.”

A person from evacuating area tweeted about the censorship of Fukushima.


@akemizk06512 今日、福島の○○町(避難区域)から来た方が、この町ではTV出演は町を通してと言われてて、「帰りたいです」「復興」って言って出たら町から1万円もらえるという噂を。「避難したいです」は出演不可と。Source
Today I heard this story from someone in ○○ town (Evacuation area).
In that town, they need a permission of the town government to show up on TV, and they are paid 10,000JPY every time they say, I want to go home, I want it to be reconstruction. If they want to evacuate, the town government won’t give a permission.



@akemizk06512 発言者が特定されて、(町の補償などから)不利益を被ってはいけないので町名は伏せてます。こういうことを慮らないといけないというのも、つらいことです。何も引け目に感じることをしてないのに・・・・Source

If I specify the name of the town, the person will be identified and can’t get paid for compensation so I can’t even mention the name of it. It makes me feel bad to think about even such a thing. We don’t do anything wrong.


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.
