I tried to install a Bitcoin button on the sidebar. Because I don’t have bitcoin, I can’t test it to see if it works. I would be very glad if you use it for a test.

“Suicide” d’un directeur d’émission télé ayant couvert les cancers de la thyroïde de Fukushima et les coulisses de l’industrie nucléaire


M. Iwaji, journaliste, “s’est suicidé” le 1er septembre 2014.

Il était directeur d’une émission télévisée d’information, sur la chaîne Hodo (Asahi TV). Il avait couvert les cancers de la thyroïde des enfants de Fukushima le 11 mars dernier.
Il est également connu pour avoir couvert la position dominante des législateurs et industriels impliqués dans la promotion de l’énergie nucléaire et surnommés “Le village nucléaire” ainsi que la situation réelle de la décontamination dans la préfecture de Fukushima.

La police se contente de rapporter qu’il s’agit d’un suicide, sans donner aucun détail.

Un autre journaliste japonais, M. Imanishi, ami du directeur a écrit sur son blog qu’ils venaient juste de parler du prochain projet à réaliser ensemble, il ne peut pas croire qu’Iwaji se soit suicidé.

J’ai essayé de mettre un bouton pour Bitcoin dans la barre de droite. Je ne peux pas le tester parce que je n’ai pas de compte bitcoin. Je serai grandement reconnaissant à celle/celui qui voudra bien l’utiliser pour le tester.

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.
