I urge everyone to purchase the newly translated collection of 50 stories and statements from Fukushima residents, called Fukushima Radiation: Will You Still Say No Crime Was Committed?
Here’s the blurb I contributed to the book:
Will You Still Say No Crime Was Committed? resounds with the anguished voices of deeply aggrieved mothers and fathers confronting a parents’ worst nightmare. Defenseless in the path of deadly airborne radiation, they mourn an uncertain future for their beloved children. These testimonies give voice to families ripped apart, their life-sustaining ties to friends and neighbors broken, and their livelihoods destroyed.
Japan and the World must Listen to Radiation Victims
Those who lack the financial means to relocate continue to live in communities possessing levels of radioactive contamination that, if within Chernobyl downwind zones, would have required evacuation. As a significantly health-damaged victim of childhood radiation exposure from the Hanford nuclear weapons facility in the US, I know firsthand the heartbreak engendered by a behemoth nuclear culture that turns a blind eye to the suffering of those it has negligently preordained to a future of radiogenic cancer and other serious disease. There is mounting evidence of negligent errors and omissions by TEPCO officials and relevant government officials. I stand with these Complainants in their continued quest for responsibility to be taken.
