  • Man Arrested for Prank Calls to TEPCO

    His daily number of calls to the center, designed for inquiries about damages related to the nuclear disaster at the utility's Fukushima No. 1 power plant, reached as many as some 270.

    The man admitted the charges against him, saying that he was angry about having to eat radiation-contaminated food, according to the sources.

    webmasters comment:

    Demand answers, get arrested. Altough crazy but he made a point. As a result of the catastrophe, this person was irradiated cca 8000 times per second and Tepco is bitching about 270 phone calls per day. Phone calls don't kill. Radiation brought to you by TEPCO does! Where are the arrests of TEPCO executives?

    As i have stated before it is more than obvious that Japan government (no matter what face is "at the helm") is completly run by nuclear loby. Also i can safely claim, that for the last six months, Japan is the worst human rights violator in the world. China looks like a rose bud in comparison.

    Hipocrisy at its finest. This guy should be locked away for life. They are acting like if the whole world didn't know or see the videos of how Japanese government officials remain silent on questions if Fukushima residents don't have human rights or a fact  that they intend to return the people in radioactive death zones with countless death traps.

  • U.S. secretly asked Japan to help dump nuclear reactors

    The United States secretly sought Japan's support in 1972 to enable it to dump decommissioned nuclear reactors into the world's oceans under the London Convention, an international treaty being drawn up at the time.

    Countries working on the wording of the pact wanted to specifically prohibit the dumping of radioactive waste at sea.

    But Washington wanted to incorporate an exceptional clause in the case of decommissioned nuclear reactors.

    If countries would be judged by their actions and not their economic power, USA would top the list of third world countries along with Japan.

  • Demonstrators challenge gov't to build nuclear plant in Tokyo

    TOKYO —

    Dozens of demonstrators rallied in Tokyo on Sunday, challenging Japanese authorities to build a nuclear power power plant in the capital to demonstrate their sincerity about nuclear safety.

    About 50 anti-nuclear power demonstrators shouted: “Let’s build a nuclear power plant in Tokyo!”

    “If they are not lying about nuclear safety, they might as well bring a nuclear power plant to Tokyo, right?” said organizer Angelo De Rosa, a 45- year-old Italian language teacher based in Tokyo.

    webmasters comment:

    Exactly and while at it, they should build radioactive waste disposal sites in the backyard of every single nuclear shill that was telling the people that radiation is safe.
