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!

Atomic bombs survivors received fair compensation, not so in Fukushima!広島・長崎の被爆者援護法:追加1ミリ被曝で被曝者認定、福島事故被害者にも認定を、するべき!



After the ICRP regulation set up 1mSv/y as a permissible level in 1990, Japan had been applying 1mSv/y as the legal limit of ionizing radiation dose for normal citizens and 20mSv/y for nuclear power workers in Japan.
The atmospheric dose of radiation in Japan was 0.35-0.50mSv/y depending on the locations before the Fukushima disaster. Therefore, this limit was at odds with the level the nuclear industries had set.  In fact, it was higher because of the amounts of ionizing radiation that was released into the air by nuclear bomb testing and existing nuclear power plants.
1mSv/y has also a special meaning for Hiroshima/Nagasaki victims, too.  They said that victims who were 3.55km away from the epicenter of the Nagasaki bomb, 3.25km for Hiroshima bomb were supposed to be exposed to added dose of ionizing radiation of 1 mSv/y.(=0.23uSv/h)  because of which all these victims were able: to receive financial support for the medical cost of their illnesses and even a certain amount of their living costs, although this also depended on their other conditions under the Atomic Bomb Survivors Relief Law of 1995. 

The Japanese Government recognizes the relationship between being exposed to added dose of ionizing radiation, 1mSv/y for Hiroshima/Nagasaki victims and these illnesses such as:
Malignant tumor,
Leukemia,
Hyperparathyroidism,
Irradiation cataract (age-related cataract),
Radial infarction related to radiation,
Hypothyroidism related to radiation,
Chronic hepatitis,
Cirrhosis related to radiation.

*Added dose of ionizing radiation “1mSv/y”=0.23uSv/h 
http://www.env.go.jp/press/file_view.php?serial=18437&hou_id=14327
 
This law had been kept secret from the citizens until one of the government officials was hammered with lots of questions by Mrs. Kuniko Tanioka, a member of the House of Councilors sometime last year.  The Government officials and all the members of Parliament in Fukushima prefecture had known about this all along and were trying to hide this law from the citizens, since the Fukushima disaster.  Im sure the cover up is to avoid the high cost of compensation and mitigate their legal liability.
The Japanese government has not taken sufficient responsibilities to support victims of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  They kept saying "it is safe", whilst they have been allowing residents to stay in an area with up to 20kmSv/y with even hotter spots in many different places.  The government has been realizing that the decontamination is not working well enough to reduce the level of ionizing radiation contamination in the prefecture. 
Now the Japanese Government want to apply UNSCEAR`s recent increased allowable recommendations to 100mSv/y (saying this is now safe.), thereby raising the permissible level of ionizing radiation in order for them to be allowed to encourage the evacuees to return to their home.

As the ionizing radiation has been spreading throughout the larger area of the East and Kanto areas, the importance of keeping the 1mSv/y regulation is an issue for many effected people in those areas. 
There is a group of people including a conscientious  member of the House of Councilors, radiation specialists, doctors who are experienced with the Chernobyl children and volunteers getting together to share and discuss how to fight against the governments policy (especially to evacuate children out of Fukushima prefecture). This group is very determined to keep fighting and would really appreciate support from outside Japan.
