THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO RUSH THROUGH LEGISLATION THAT WILL GAG THE PRESS, PREVENT ANY FURTHER NEWS ABOUT FUKUSHIMA FROM BEING REPORTED, PUNISH 'WHISTLE-BLOWERS' WITH UP TO 5 YEARS IN PRISON, AND THIS ON THE EVE OF THEIR IMPOSSIBLE ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THOSE DAMAGED FUEL RODS FROM UNIT 4 NEXT MONTH.
I HOPE MY JAPANESE READERS WILL SHARE THIS WITH THOSE THEY CARE FOR.
PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THIS GAG ORDER LEGISLATION BEFORE YOUR ABILITY TO DO SO IS TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!
I HOPE YOU FIND A WAY TO STOP ABE FROM DOING THIS.
PLEASE FOLLOW ALL LINKS PROVIDED IN THE TEXT OF THIS POST.
FOLLOWING ARTICLE UPDATED OCTOBER 28, 2013
"Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's
government has agreed on draft legislation on the issue on Friday, November 1,
and expects the parliament to vote on it during the current
session, which ends on December 6.
With a comfortable majority in both chambers, the ruling
coalition bloc would see no problems overcoming the opposition.
Critics say the new law would give the executive too much power
to conceal information from the public and compromise the freedom
of the press.
Currently only issues of defense can be designated state secret
in Japan, and non-military leakers face a jail term of up to one
year. Defense officials may be sentenced to five years for
exposing secrets, or 10 years, if the classified information they
leaded came from the US military.
The new law would enact harsher punishment to leakers, but more
importantly, it would allow government branches other than
defense ministry designate information as state secrets. The bill
names four categories of ‘special secrets’, which would be
covered by protection – defense, diplomacy, counter-terrorism and
Under the new legislation a ministry may classify information for
a five-year term with a possibility of prolongation to up to 30
years. After that a cabinet ruling would be needed for the secret
to be treated as such, but there is no limit for how long
information may be kept under a lid.
"Basically, this bill raises the possibility that the kind of
information about which the public should be informed is kept
secret eternally," Tadaaki Muto, a lawyer and member of a
task force on the bill at the Japan Federation of Bar
Associations, told Reuters.
"Under the bill, the administrative branch can set the range
of information that is kept secret at its own discretion."
Critics of the state secrets bill say it would undermine media’s
ability to act as the public’s eye on the actions of the
government and whoever it would choose to shield.
"It seems very clear that the law would have a chilling effect
on journalism in Japan," said Lawrence Repeta, a law
professor at Meiji University.
Japanese law has no clear definition of what kind of new
gathering could be deemed ‘grossly inappropriate’. The bill
introduces a jail sentence of up to five years for non-officials,
including media professionals, using such methods to obtain
information. But it does not clearly state that if a journalist
reporting on a state secret is found to have obtained the
information legitimately, he or she would not be punished. This
has led critics to dismiss the ‘freedom of press’ provisions as
political window dressing.
Despite criticisms, the Japanese cabinet insists that the law be
adopted promptly. It is needed to the planned establishment of a
national security council, which would involve members from
different ministries and agencies. The law would protect
information exchanged through the new body from being leaked, the
Abe's party has sought unsuccessfully to enact a harsher law on
state secrets in the past.
Japan had harsh state secret legislations before and during World
War II, so in the post-war period government secrecy has been
viewed with suspicion, along with militaristic traditions and
other things associated with the Imperial past."
THIS SHOULD BE SEEN AS A CRIMINAL ACT TO KEEP THE JAPANESE PEOPLE AND THE REST OF THE WORLD COMPLETELY IN THE DARK ABOUT RECENT DEATHS, RADIATION SICKNESS, BIRTH DEFECTS, THYROID CANCERS, ANIMAL DIE-OFFS, CONTAMINATION OF THE TOKYO WATER SUPPLY, TOXIC CONTAMINATION OF THE ENTIRE PACIFIC OCEAN AND ANY LAND MASS IT TOUCHES, CONTINUED INCREASING, ALWAYS INCREASING, DETECTED VERY HIGH RADIATION LEVELS WITHIN A 50-100 MILE RADIUS, AND CONTINUED FALSE REPORTING BY TEPCO AND THE JAPANESE MINISTRY.
THE PEOPLE, ALL PEOPLE OF EARTH, HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AT FUKUSHIMA. IT AFFECTS ALL OF US!
ABE HAS BEEN ADVISED OVER AND OVER AGAIN, EVER SINCE 2011, TO EVACUATE AT LEAST ALL OF THE PREFECTURE AND TOKYO AS WELL, TO GET PEOPLE OUT OF THERE WITHIN 100 MILE RADIUS FROM THAT TOXIC SITE, BUT HE HAS SAID THAT WOULD RUIN JAPAN ECONOMICALLY.
HE SEEMS TO BE PUTTING MONEY ABOVE THE LIVES OF HIS OWN PEOPLE!!!
UNIT 4 TOWER IS TIPPING AND SINKING AT AN ALARMING RATE AND HAS DEVELOPED CRACKS.
TEPCO SAYS THE RECENT 7.1 QUAKE AND MANY RECENT 5.0 EARTHQUAKES AND THE 4 TYPHOONS/TROPICAL STORMS THROUGH THE AREA RECENTLY HAVE "DONE NO DAMAGE TO THE BUILDINGS".
THAT CERTAINLY CANNOT BE THE CASE, SAY EXPERTS.
TEPCO DOES ADMIT HIGHEST LEVELS OF RADIATION SINCE THE DISASTER IN THE PAST WEEK, AS MUCH AS 6,500 TO 10,000 TIMES MORE FOR CERTAIN RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES LEAKING INTO THE GROUND, THE AQUIFER BENEATH THE DAI'ICHI PLANT, THE AIR ABOVE THE PLANT, AND INTO THE PACIFIC OCEAN.
IF YOU LIVE IN TOKYO, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CONTAMINATION OF TOKYO'S WATER SUPPLY HAS BEEN REPORTED BY VALID SOURCES, AS HAS HIGH RADIATION LEVELS FROM SAMPLES IN TOKYO PUBLIC PARKS SOIL, AND FOOD AT LOCAL TOKYO MARKETS.
LIVESTOCK NEAR THE PLANT HAVE JUST BEGAN A SUDDEN DIE-OFF THAT OWNERS OF THE ANIMALS BLAME ON THE CESIUM LEVELS DETECTED IN SAMPLES FROM THEIR CORPSES. CATTLE AND DOGS HAVE BOTH BEGUN BEHAVING AGGRESSIVELY TOWARD HUMANS THERE.
THYROID ANOMALIES, TUMORS AND GOITER GROWTH IN TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN, MISCARRIAGES BY YOUNG MOTHERS OF 'ABNORMAL FETUSES', RADIATION SICKNESS SYMPTOMS IN MANY FAMILIES, ALL WITHIN A 100-MILE RADIUS OF FUKUSHIMA PLANTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE BLAMED ON THE HIGH RADIATION. SOME JAPANESE DOCTORS HAVE COME FORWARD TO SAY THEY ARE BEING TOLD BY GOVERNMENT TO NEVER AGREE THAT THESE ABNORMALITIES AND SICKNESSES ARE RELATED TO THE RADIATION THAT KEEPS SPILLING INTO THE ENVIRONMENT. SOME HAVE BEEN THREATENED WITH ARREST AFTER THEIR REPORTS. SOME MOTHERS THERE HAVE POSTED URGENT INTERNET REQUESTS FOR ANYONE TO COME AND TAKE THEIR CHILDREN OUT OF DANGER.
BOTH PRIME MINISTER ABE AND TEPCO HAVE ASKED FOR HELP FROM THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, BUT NO ONE CAN SEE ANY WAY TO EVEN CAP THE FUKUSHIMA PLANTS BECAUSE OF ITS LEAKING INTO THE GROUND AND BECAUSE OF THE MISSING FUEL RODS THAT HAVE SUNKEN INTO THE EARTH AND CANNOT BE LOCATED.
THE UNREPAIRED DAMAGE TO THE PLANT, EXTREME AND UNTIL RECENTLY UNDER-REPORTED OR UNREPORTED LEAKAGE, AND THE LIES WENT ON TOO LONG, MANY SAY, MAKING A SOLUTION AT THIS POINT IN TIME IMPOSSIBLE.
IT JUST SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A REAL SOLUTION NOW.
MAJOR NUCLEAR EXPERTS AND SCIENTISTS HAVE WARNED THAT AN ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE UNIT 4 FUEL RODS CAN ONLY END IN AN ACCIDENT THAT WILL CREATE A FISSION EVENT WHICH WILL CREATE AN EXPLOSION 14,000 TIMES MORE DEADLY THAN HIROSHIMA JUST IN THE CASE OF CESIUM THAT WOULD BE RELEASED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE AS FALLOUT.
HARVEY WASSERMAN HAS WARNED THAT : "This is a job that should only be undertaken by a dedicated team of the
world’s very best scientists and engineers, with access to all the
funding that could be needed."
NUCLEAR FALLOUT EXPERT CHRISTINA CONSOLO WARNS THAT "The worst case scenario could be a true apocalypse.”
ARNIE GUNDERSEN, NUCLEAR ENGINEER STATES, “Time is of the essence as we remain concerned that another earthquake
could still topple the damaged reactor building and the nuclear waste
storage pond up in its attic. This could literally
re-ignite the nuclear accident in the open atmosphere and inflame it
into hemispheric proportions.”
JAPAN TIME REPORTED, "Removing the fuel rods is a task usually assisted by computers that know
their exact location down to the nearest millimeter. Working virtually
blind in a highly radioactive environment, there is a risk the crane
could drop or damage one of the rods — an accident that would heap even
more misery onto the Tohoku region.Under normal circumstances, such an operation would take a little more
than three months."
TEPCO HAS SAID IT CAN DO THIS IN DAYS!
NUCLEAR NEWS STATED, "An operation with potentially “apocalyptic” consequences is expected to
begin in a little over two weeks from now – “as early as November 8″ –
at Fukushima’s damaged and sinking Reactor 4, when plant operator TEPCO
will attempt to remove over 1300 spent fuel rods holding the radiation
equivalent of 14,000 Hiroshima bombs from a spent fuel storage tank
perched on the reactor’s upper floor. If the job is botched, radiation releases could force the evacuation of
all humans from the site, and could cause electronic equipment to fail.
Humankind would be forced to stand helplessly by as billions of curies
of deadly radiation pour into the air and the ocean."
GLOBAL RESEARCH WROTE
"A chorus of voices has been sounding alarm over the never-been-done-at-this-scale plan to manually remove
the 400 tons of spent fuel by TEPCO, who so far has been responsible
for mishap after mishap in the ongoing crisis at the crippled nuclear
plant." "This is a question that transcends being anti-nuclear. The fate of the
earth is at stake here and the whole world must be watching every move
at that site from now on. With 11,000 fuel rods scattered around the
place, as a ceaseless flow of contaminated water poisoning our oceans,
our very survival is on the line."
OILPRICE.COM ALSO RAISED ALARM:
"Now however there is worse news that could prove dangerous to much of the world, and again Tepco could be responsible.
Fukushima, used nuclear fuel rods are stored in pools and, especially
at reactor 4, some of these pools are damaged and at risk of completely
breaking open in the event of another earthquake. If one of the pools
were to collapse or catch fire, then the impacts would affect the world.
Tepco could be responsible for unleashing this devastation on the world
as starting in November they have decided to begin an operation to
remove 400 tonnes of fuel rod assemblies, on their own. A workforce of thousands is preparing to work on the fuel rod pools at the instable reactor 4 in order to relocate them to a safer location.
Toshio Kimura, a former technician at Tepco, said that “Previously it was a computer-controlled process that memorized the exact
locations of the rods down to the millimeter and now they don’t have
that. It has to be done manually so there is a high risk that they will
drop and break one of the fuel rods.”
MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL OF YOU IN JAPAN.
WE HERE HOPE AND PRAY FOR A WAY FOR THIS NIGHTMARE TO END FOR YOU....AND FOR ALL OF US.
PEOPLE OF EARTH, THIS AFFECTS EVERY ONE OF US!
THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT JAPAN, IT'S ABOUT A NUCLEAR DISASTER THAT IS CONSTANTLY ESCALATING TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN, NO SOLUTION, AND NOW THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO STOP ANY OF US FROM FINDING OUT HOW BAD THINGS ARE AS MORE AND MORE OF JAPAN'S CITIZENS COME FORWARD WITH SHOCKING VIDEOS, REPORTS AND PLEAS FOR HELP.
WE ARE JUST NOW LEARNING HOW BAD THIS IS, AND FOR THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT TO CUT OFF NOW ALL NEWS ABOUT THE HORROR THAT EMANATES FROM FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR PLANTS DAILY, LIKE I SAID, SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A CRIMINAL ACT.
BY INTERNATIONAL LAW, IT SHOULD ALSO BE SEEN AS AN ACT OF NUCLEAR AGGRESSION BY JAPAN.
I HOPE SOMEONE CAN PUT THIS BEFORE AN INTERNATIONAL COURT OR EVEN BEFORE THE CURSED UNITED NATIONS AND STOP THIS PLOT TO WITHHOLD NEWS OF THE UNFOLDING EVENTS IN JAPAN.
THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS CAMERAS TRAINED ON THOSE NUCLEAR REACTORS, THE ENTIRE DAI'ICHI AREA, THE WORKERS, AND ALL THAT GOES ON THERE 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK.
WE MUST BE ABLE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THIS SITUATION!
WE SHOULD ALSO FIND SOME WAY TO HELP, SOME WAY TO STOP THIS ESCALATING CHAIN OF EVENTS FROM DESTROYING OUR LIVES AND OUR PLANET!
