The people of Fukushima think it is to late. They think they have been contaminated and the country has abandoned them. They can't do anything about it. So t hey better live without worrying.
Trust was broken because of a few things... They knew there was a meltdown and they didn't say it. To avoid the explosion and release the internal pressure, they vent radioactive vapor into the air releasing a lot of radioactivity. But when they did this, they didn't inform the population to escape in a certain direction. They didn't say the quantity relased into the air. They didn't say anything. …...
These are unbelievable situation.... They were not prepared to crises management, and altough these facts were openly revealed, one year has passed, and there is still no one to take a responsibility. Before and after the disaster, the very same people are still in charge. It is an incredible situation. If they had changed to new people, people whom we could trust, it would have been different. And if they had opened Information to the public, in such a way that trust would be rebuilt, this would have changed everything.
