As evacuation designated areas shrink, so are options for evacuees


IN LIMBO

Since the start of the catastrophe in Fukushima on March 2011, areas designated for evacuation due to radiation levels have been redrawn on maps countless time, with a complete disregard for the safety, (physical and mental) of its residents. The ongoing contamination keeps on spreading, regardless of little circles or « invisible frontiers » being pushed back on paper by corrupt bureaucrats and clueless politicians. As a matter of facts, whenever Fukushima gets hit with rain, snow or even Typhoons, (as being reviewed here), contamination spreads again, unevenly, making the classification of certain areas obsolete, inaccurate, always outdated, and most all, dangerous for abiding citizens.

 

dont destroy

 

The Govt is nevertheless « encouraging » everyone to return to contaminated areas which would fall under the criteria of the 20 mSv yearly dose limit. To this day, there is about 160,000 evacuees including close to 57,000 who have fled from the prefecture all together. It is safe to say, it will take a lot of lies, a well marketed propaganda and powerful disinformation to have even half of these citizens return home anytime soon.

 

too late

 

But the grim reality is that scores of people will. Some will, due to the emotional stress caused by being separated from family members and communities. Others cannot wait to escape these cramped and teared down shelters they have been stuck in for nearly 3 years now. The Govt keeps on shutting them down one by one anyway. Other evacuees will be forced to return as compensation money will also run out.

 

will come back

 

Back in 2011, our friend Ooyama san, council man of Minami Soma and fierce advocate of children’s evacuation, stated that the top priority for local authorities is to lure children and women back to the contaminated areas … especially the ones who fled outside the prefecture. Without children, municipalities cannot be restored. The return of Children is the key to Fukushima restoration. Corrupt politicians know that far too well. That is why today they are enticing pregnant women and families with children for their return by offering them a BRAND NEW HOME.

 

 

Some evacuees who hold out hopes of going home can never return. The Govt is very well aware of that fact. Yet 3 yrs after the catastrophe, authorities have repeatedly fed them with these hopes (lies). Too coward to address this pressing issue, they are today falling short to admit this and to finally take responsibility in relocating permanently these evacuees.

 

nowhere else

 

As Shigeru Ishiba, secretary-general of the Liberal Democratic Party, said on Nov 2sd, 2013.

“The time will come when someone must say, ‘You cannot live here anymore, but we will make up for it,’ ”

 

The key words in that statement are  » The time will come … « . When is that?

March 15th 2011, As TEPCO looses complete control of the 4 Daiichi reactors. the prefectural government of Fukushima expands the evacuation area from 10km to 20km (10km = 6.21 miles), which is being defined on April 22sd as « The Exclusion Zone ».

 

the government instructed the residents living between 20km-30km radius from the NPP to stay inside house. As the result of System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPPEDI) was still not reflected at this point, many people did not know that the wind and the rain on March 15th brought radioactive particles to spread northwest direction from the NPP. – See more at: http://fukushimaontheglobe.com/the-earthquake-and-the-nuclear-accident/evacuation-orders-and-restricted-areas#sthash.7RGYe7AI.dpuf
On April 22, 2011, the government designated the 20km radius around the NPP as a restricted area and prohibited entry into the area excluding those engaged in emergency response. – See more at: http://fukushimaontheglobe.com/the-earthquake-and-the-nuclear-accident/evacuation-orders-and-restricted-areas#sthash.7RGYe7AI.dpuf

The government also instructs residents living between the 20 and 30km to stay indoors and the area is classified as “Evacuation prepared areas in case of emergency”. The residents are required to remain prepared to move out of the areas or in-house evacuation in case of emergency.

 

September 2011, incompetent Nato Kan is ousted out of power and replaced with equally clueless PM Noda.

 

“Evacuation prepared areas in case of emergency” was designated as the areas excluding deliberate evacuation areas, among the areas of in-house evacuation on April 22, 2011. The residents are required to remain prepared to move out of the areas or in-house evacuation in case of emergency regarding the NPP. On September 30, 2011, the areas were lifted. – See more at: http://fukushimaontheglobe.com/the-earthquake-and-the-nuclear-accident/evacuation-orders-and-restricted-areas#sthash.7RGYe7AI.dpuf

September 30th 2011, Goshi Hosono (« Mr. Everyone should share this nuclear burden ») is named Minister of the environment. Soon after his appointment, he prompts refugees to return to five municipalities including Minami Soma and Kawauchi. He also shuts down a few shelters to force their return.
December 26th 2011, the new government in place hails victory in their struggle to contain Daiichi by claiming « completion of Step 2″ or « cold shutdown ». It is obviously absurd and politically motivated, but soon debunked by the international community. Nevertheless, it is enough for them to resume lifting big chunks of previously restricted areas and to start pushing harder for evacuees to return.

The areas to which evacuation orders had been issued were then rearranged into 3 areas responding to the annual cumulative dose.

April 2012, the Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters released a document outlining the reclassification of some restricted areas. The figure below shows which areas have changed designation including which areas had their restrictions removed during the month of April.

November 2013. 11 municipalities in Fukushima are under evacuation orders of various levels depending on their radiation levels. 6 of them are bound for total clearance to return very soon.

 

TO RETURN OR NOT ?

translated by World Network for Saving Children from radiation

Scientists say that’s suicidal. Anti nuclear activists say no one should be allowed to return to Fukushima until it’s completely safe. What does TEPCO say? It’s under control!

Mrs. Morizono, a Fukushima resident, is highly concerned about many hot spots existed around the area. She had to close her after school classes for children because of high radiation. One mother who has a small child joined the NGO group of the ordinary women, united by fear for the future of their children and distrust of the government’s actions.
科学者たちは自殺行為だと、また反原発活動家たちは完全に安全となるまでは福島に帰るべきではないと言う。東電はなんと言っているだろう?「状況は完全にコントロールされています」。福島県に住むモリゾノ氏は、地域に点在するホットスポットを憂慮している。高濃度の放射能のせいで、モリゾノ氏は子どもたちのための放課後学童クラスをや めなくてはならなかった。子どもたちの将来に対して不安を抱く普通の母親たちで結成されたNGOグループに参加しているある母親は政府に対する不信を募ら せている。
