Every year at this time, the time to commemorate March 11. 2011, the Tohoku earthquake and the tsunami, and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, all the mainstream media and the websites publish so many articles about the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant present situation. For those like me who followed the Fukushima Daiichi ongoing catastrophe day by day since now 6 years, there is not much that those many articles could really teach us that we do not know already.
At this time of the year I think only about the victims, and keep praying for all the victims, included my daughter, one of the many. For those who already died, for those who are now affected and sick, and all the future victims to come, for all those many lives affected in many ways by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
Thinking about how the nuclear industry gets away with plain murder, about the callousness and hypocrisy of the Japanese government, and how the victims are still being victimized even now by their government ruthless policies, I feel deep anger.
That anger keeps me going against all odds. Each time when I would like to stop and quit this time consuming daily duty, it keeps me going. Because deep in my heart I know that the Fukushima victims need us more than ever, and also because I would hope that the other people learn from the Fukushima victims misery, so that people everywhere would wake up and become active to help stop everywhere once and for all this death industry, so that the Fukushima people would not have been sacrificed totally in vain.
Never forget, before anything else, the Fukushima catastrophe is a human tragedy, a human tragedy caused by the criminal nuclear industry’s greed and irresponsibility, with the shameless complicity of a government unwilling to protect the life, the health of its people, all in the name of holy economics.
6 years already, and we are just at the beginning of this unresolved still ongoing nuclear catastrophe, the technology to resolve it has not yet been invented.
