From examiner.com – Evidence has been released Friday showingnew radiation is leaking at Fukushima’s nuclear power plant as its operator TEPCOdisclosed more video recordings of its in-house teleconferences in the early phase of the 2011 catastrophe, showing employees’ tense communications before radioactive water was released into the sea. The UN calling for TEPCO and the government to observe health rights earlier this week has prompted an urgent international petition to evacuate radiated children.
“We have confirmed a worst situation — Water containing extremely high levels of radiation flowing into sea,” Masao Yoshida, then manager of the plant, says in new video footage of early days of the Fukushimacatastrophe.
President of The Institute for Energy and Environmental Research Arjun Makhijani told NBC News TODAY that the Japanese government has not been forthcoming about the amount of radiation leaking from the Fukushima nuclear plant and that new radiation is being released.
As many as 300,000 Japanese children are being radiated daily. The radiation level is increasing.
Responding to the right to health being violated in Japan, the World Network for Saving Children from Radiation is circulating two urgent petitions for action involving children and radioactive contamination from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear disaster as the United Nations special rapporteur on the right to health released a statement saying the Japanese government and TEPCO must do more to help radiation victims from the Fukushima triple meltdown.
The United Nations special rapporteur on the right to health, Anand Grover, operating in a position not established until this century, reports that Japan and TEPCO must do more to help those exposed to radiation from the Fukushima triple meltdown.
Grover urges Japan “to heed people’s voices in the aftermath of the nuclear disaster,” and to expand monitoring of nuclear radiation effects on people’s health. Read more…
