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!

Monday, 17 September 2012


This diary is written by Karen Fallon who participated a six month peace walk from Tokyo to Hiroshima passing through the tsunami area and many afflicted zones in Japan.  I met her during Nuclear Free Walk a couple weeks ago.
During her walk in Fukushima prefecture she heard so many sad and devastated stories from the residents.  She warns: “The children need to be made safe.  They need to escape this horror. The people and families who are still in afflicted areas need to be re-homed and given free medical care. The government and the energy companies must face their responsibilities and save the children. The children are the future.”

17th of March 2012. Fukushima city, Fukishima. Japan.

 Fukishima city after fasting and prayer.  Some of the local men who joined us for the fasting and prayers come back to the temple and speak of their experiences.  They are trying to make a law to protect the children here in the disaster area.  There seems to be a great deal of anger at the English for developing the nuclear power station, and, as they put it, the bomb.
But it is the Japanese government and power companies who built so many nuclear power stations.
 On the walk to Soma, through the mountains, we passed through the town of Date.  It is a small town with Very high radiation.   As we walk through this area there are little signs of life continuing here.  Houses and fields lie empty.  The lucky ones with insurance or relatives who live far away from the disaster area have managed to escape.  Many people can't leave here. They have jobs and nowhere else to go. Children can only be outside for one hour a day due to the high radiation.  Food is kept in lead containers when possible, nothing can be done about the water or the air.  The local authorities are doing the best that they can.  Washing buildings and removing radioactive soil.  But there is nowhere to put it or deal with it safely, so they bury it.  The mayor told us that the government was not able to help and also that he was told that they have to manage as best they can as there was no money to spare for them.
It is a desperate and tragic situation.
There is no safe containment, and, in many people's minds there is the added stress and worry that it can happen again as the reactors are not safe. Even small earthquake tremors create moments of panic and worry.
That evening, in Fukishima city, there was a bigger earthquake .5 magnitude.  There was instant stress visible upon the faces of the people, fear about another tsunami and reactor leak gripped those nearby.  It was heartbreaking to experience this.
We walked to Soma city where the city council welcomed us warmly. The city suffered the tsunami and is recovering well, but once again, the fear of radiation is greater than that of another tsunami.
0.3msv/hr.iIs the radiation reading today.  This is very high!

18th march, 2012.
 We walk to Minami soma. It is raining quite hard. At lunch time we reached the makeshift housing for the tsunami survivors. It is quite small and basic, but the people support each other well and a close knit, caring community has formed.
Sleeping in a remote area with very little phone signal.
We will walk through tsunami area again today. There is nothing for miles. The areas we walk in used to be towns; they have been wiped off the map.
We walk to the 20km boundary of the radiation exclusion zone of Fukushima dai-ichi nuclear plant.  We offer prayers for those who died and those who still suffer from the radiation.  
From there we go by car, 1 km.  It is too dangerous to walk; there is a "hot spot"
There used to be a town here. Now it is a barren waste land.
There are some people still living here, because they have no choice.  The government won't help, yet the government can pay billions of yen to the American government for relocation costs of U.S. troops from Okinawa to Guam! It is terrible.
The wreckage from the tsunami is piled like rubbish whilst new electricity plans are being erected at a furious pace. Sometimes, the remains of people’s lives are broken down into rubble to provide hardcore for the heavy machinery. There seems no respect for the lives that were lost.
We stop for lunch, I do not wish to eat inside the car, so I walk to the beach only to find my appetite is gone and leave my onigiri (=rice ball) on the sea wall as an offering to those whom the sea has taken.  There are some people here, they arrived by car to pay respects to their lost loved ones.  They talk of the tsunami, but their greatest fears are from radiation and the future of the children.
It was like walking through hell.  Nothing is left for miles except the remains of shattered lives.  The sea shore is littered with debris and the remains of the sea wall. The tsunami must have been very high here, at least 20/ 25 feet high.  It swept everything in its path. The land still shows the scars where the water reached.  There would have been no time for most people to try to get to safety. Everything was washed away.
Humans and animals suffered greatly here. The ever present, invisible radiation haunts the land now. It is killing these people more horribly and painfully than the sea.  Those who survive still suffer in ways we cannot imagine, yet the Japanese government is telling people it is safe and that they should return to this area to live and rebuild.  They are saying it is safe, the radiation is not so high. How can they lie like this?......
