Japanese government killing its own people in Fukushima

The video above documents a meeting between Fukushima residents and  
government officials from Tokyo, said to have taken place on 19 July  
2011. The citizens are demanding their government evacuate people  
from a broader area around the Fukushima nuclear plant, because of  
ever-increasing fears about the still-spreading radiation. They are  
demanding that their government provide financial and logistical  
support to get out. In the video above, you can see that some  
participants actually brought samples of their children’s urine to  
the meeting, and they demanded that the government test it for  
radioactivity.

When asked by one person at the meeting about citizens’ right to live  
a healthy and radioactive-free life, Local Nuclear Emergency Response  
Team Director Akira Satoh replies “I don’t know if they have that  
right.”
