  • Toshiba, Hitachi Plant Picked for Radiation Tests After Fukushima

    Toshiba Corp. (6502) and Hitachi Plant Technologies Ltd. were among companies selected by the Japanese government to carry out radiation decontamination tests following the Fukushima disaster.

    The Japan Atomic Energy Agency selected 25 companies and institutions including Obayashi Corp. (1802), Taisei Corp. (1801) and Rohto Pharmaceutical Co., the government-affiliated agency said in a statement today. The decontamination projects are scheduled to be completed by Feb. 29, the agency said last month.

    Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant has been leaking radiation since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami disabled power and cooling systems leading to three meltdowns and forcing 160,000 people to flee their homes. The government plans to budget more than 1.1 trillion yen ($14.2 billion) for decontamination by the end of the next fiscal year, Goshi Hosono, the minister in charge of responding to the nuclear crisis, said in Sept. 30.

    Fukushima people forced to do contamination work for free …

    But here we read that the peoples moneys are going towards cleaning up corporations and government offices.

    People in Japan have to realize that they are completely on their own, before its to late. The illusion that they can rely on their government has to be shattered.

    Billions  for cleaning ceo's desks and windows while mothers and children are being forced to return to radioactive death traps in Fukushima with prospects to work there for free. All while their tax moneys is supporting the Japanese nuclear mafia that's running the country.
