Le gouvernement japonais prévoie d’interdire l’utilisation d’aliments importés pour les cantines scolaires


Le 30 mars 2013, le chef politique du Liberal Democratic Party, Mme. Takaichi, a affirmé au cours d’une réunion du LDP qu’ils commençaient à examiner leur promesse de rendre obligatoire que tous les aliments des cantines scolaires soient de production locale, promesse faite lors des élections à la Chambre des Conseillers.

Ayant déclaré participer aux négociations pour TPP, elle a déclaré qu’ils doivent promouvoir la consommation des produits locaux.

Le 31 mars 2013, le Fukushima Diary rapportait que 44 pays restreignent l’importation d’aliments du Japon, le MAFF : “On pourrait présenter l’affaire à l’OMS”.
Obliger les écoles à consommer local est plus facile qu’obliger les autres pays à importer des aliments japonais.

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.
