Dear all,

Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.

I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)

日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ! 1mSv/yの約束を守れ!

Unheard voices from high school girls in Fukushima
Three high school girls in Soma-city, 40km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power plant, had been getting together every day after school since a year after the disaster to talk about the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear explosion, and to share their experiences of the disaster.  Through this process, they came to understand each others’ pain, suffering and confusion.  They had been feeling so much pressure and frustration about pretending that everything was ok under the government’s false safety campaign, and they wrote this video script based on their own feelings, thoughts and experiences.  They’ve been worrying about their future, especially after one of their friend committed suicide:  They might develop cancer later.  How long can they live?  Is it really ok to have a baby?  They are like any other teenagers, complex and sensitive, yet courageous enough to be able to express themselves to a larger audience.  If you could have listened to them, you would have understood what it is like for them to live in the high radiation zone in Fukushima.
Although the video has been erased, I decided to post the video and information anyway because I would like everyone to know how often this kind of thing has been happening in Japan. 
The Fukushima local government including the Education committee seems intent only on restoring the local economy, refusing to accept the radiation dangers and ignoring the voices of citizens and children who want to express their real feelings of fear,, frustration and stress over the series of misleading safety campaigns by the government, media, scientists and education boards, who are all in thrall to the power of the nuclear industry.  I received the following e-mail from the owner of the website which had up loaded this video:
“The video might have been erased by the local education committee in Fukushima by putting pressure on the girls once they found out I had uploaded it to my website.  This kind of thing has been happening very often in Fukushima where the authorities have been doing their best to suppress any anti-nuclear movement.  There is even a feeling among ordinary citizens of not even wanting to hear the word ‘radiation’.  I am worried that the girls and their parents might be feeling ostracized for their bravery in standing out from the crowd….”
I feel sorry to hear that such an environment has been created in Fukushima.  It must be very hard for everybody to live in such a heavily radioactively contaminated area, whether they are aware of the dangers or not.  I hope this total injustice only serves to make some brave citizens more aware and even more determined to keep on standing up against injustice.  I would also like to pray sincerely for the voice of every single person who bravely expresses their feelings and asserts their right to live as a human being.


  1. If you can tell me exactly who pulled this video (I hear it was their high school) I would like to start an email campaign to get it back online. This is an absurdity as well as an outrage. Let me know what you can, I can do some research.


  2. Hi Nick,

    I appreciated your comment very much.
    These videos have 3 parts, all of them have English translations. Somebody must have worked hard to post them at first.
    I'm going to contact the blog owner and other people living in Fukushima prefecture who may be able to find the school that stopped the video.
    I will be in touch with you later.

    Thank you.

  3. Dear Nick,
    I got a reply from the owner of the blog who posted this video where I found it originally. He found out that the girls have been performing their play outside Fukushima prefecture even though the video was erased. Therefore his comment on the reason for erasing the video might be wrong. He apologized for confusion. However he mentioned that Fukushima local government wouldn't allow them to use the public spaces for the play which I think probably true because Japanese government and local fukushima government want to downplay the danger of radiation. I heard so many reports from various sources that that what's been happening in Fukushima prefecture. To get some more fact right about the video I will find which high school in Soma city and try to talk to them and let you know what they say. Whatever the reason is I think it will be good to get the video back for audience outside Japan. I would like to join the petition if you organize for requesting the video to be back.
    Kind regards,

    Mia June

  4. Good news Mia! The video is back online, in two sites. First is DailyMotion:
