This month marked the half-year anniversary of the
Fukushima earthquake and tsunami, and TEPCO and the Japanese
government remain unable to control the nuclear emergency
that continues to unfold.
Radiation levels exceed the Chernobyl disaster and now
reach a level that is unknown to humans or machines.
Radiation leakage from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power
Plant was so high in August it exceeded the monitoring
equipment’s maximum measuring capacity.
Radiation experts estimate that more than 1 million
people will die from Fukushima’s radiation. According to Dr.
, the director of Radioisotope Center at the University
of Tokyo, the amount of radiation released thus far is
equivalent to more than 29 “Hiroshima-type atomic bombs.”
Despite these life-threatening levels of radiation
contamination, the majority of pregnant women and children
in Fukushima have not been evacuated and they occupy
facilities that are unsafe. Their exposure to unhealthy
levels of radiation places them at higher risks of cancer
and other medical conditions, including death. It is time
for the international community to become more involved.
Last month, half a dozen Japanese non-governmental
organizations petitioned the United Nations Office of the
Commissioner for Human Rights to investigate the widespread
violation of children’s rights in the Fukushima region.
Fukushima prefecture is approximately the size of
Connecticut with a population similar to Houston (just over
2 million residents).
Prior to the earthquake and tsunami in March, 385,940
Fukushima residents were children and teenagers. Today,
these children are facing widespread discrimination that
risks their lives and health….
