As long as they keep it quiet, the country wont collapse. These jokers are literally holding a gun to humanity, just to save face. Its one of the most disgusting displays Ive ever seen next to barry hussein saitoro and his lies.

two nuclear bombs were not enough for their Government, and they call themselves a democracy.

Tuna hang out around Japan then are caught elsewhere for consumption, don't think for a second that the industry is doing the proper testing to see if the fish is safe to eat.

Human rights experts rap U.N. report on Fukushima radiation
OCT 25, 2013 The Japan Times
Human rights experts, including a U.N. special rapporteur, are criticizing a U.N. scientific report dismissing concerns about the effects of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster on the Japanese public.
Speaking Thursday at an event organized by U.S. and Japanese nongovernmental groups, U.N. special rapporteur on the right to health Anand Grover took issue with the report’s conclusion that “there is nothing to worry about” for members of the public exposed to radiation from Fukushima.

Yes Polluting the Ocean Sea Water is definately not Organic. Its Radio Active Fall Out. But Why Should Japan be Responsible for the Ocean Water ? Who Does it Belong to ? Besides .. No One is Able to Clean Up the Ocean Except Time.. Which might not be Enough Time !!

You can just smell the reaking aroma of the US behind this one, just like Obama has done in the US....hey people of Japan, better take action before it's too late!

The media is all BS on Fukushima, as it was on 911 and countless other "news" stories. It makes more sense that Fukushima was attacked by the Stuxnet virus (Israeli security was on-site!), which would explain why the Japanese authorities didn't react to the over-heating soon enough. There is also the mystery of the US carrier fleet being in the vicinity of the earthquake epi-center at the time of the quake. There are those in Japan who know a lot more than they are saying, so this new law is a precaution about that type of information getting out and causing international issues with their US/zionist overlords.

I suppose this is a sign they have given up hope of fixing Fukushima so their only hope to retain power as Japan dies around them is a totalitarian secret state.

This is very sinister, the Japanese need to rise up now.


We all people of this amazing planet need to rise up. Everyone

I think the whole world needs to know because it's affecting our waters & will go around the globe eventually & it's killing our marine life & causing cancer not only in there land but it already made it's way to Americas continent. What these guys are doing is irresponsible to humanity & nature. They should personally clean there mess.

Another dog on a USA leash?? Repunent!!!

japan's is steadily giving up every single principle, value or tradition that used to make it special and respected all arround the globe.. I d go as far as to say that their decadence compared to their history is now on par with greece.. A major difference though is that greece's fall does not pose a threat to the future of this planet...

News always gets out and how about sueing Japan for all the damage it has caused and will continue to cause.


Emil Seuthe 25.10.2013 10:06

I guess the Japanese do not want the 2022 Olympics after all - good thing. Get ready, Buenos Aires.

I also just found that f u k (again without the spaces) is considered offensive by the RT censors - unless of course they use it.
