Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.
I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)
日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ！ １ｍＳｖ／ｙの約束を守れ！

The Japanese Government's Empty Promise and Deceptive Comfort for Fukushima Evacuees 日本政府から福島避難者へ、空約束とごまかしの安心感
Posted by Mia on 22/11/13
Decontamination was a deciding factor for as a major part of the reconstruction and inviting The Olympics to Tokyo....
77% of the budget is still unused, Tepco refuses to cover all the cost of
decontamination. 除染費用77％は未使用。 東電が除染経費の支払いを拒否
-The Environment Ministry has failed to use as much as 76.6 percent, or 247.2 billion yen, of its budget for the decontamination of radioactive areas around the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, the Board of Audit said.
-The ministry faces another problem: Tokyo Electric Power Co. The operator of the stricken Fukushima plant refuses to cover all the costs of the decontamination work, as required under the law.
Documents show government completely accepts TEPCO’s refusal to pay the cleanup 日本政府は今年の2月、すでに東電の支払い拒否を認めていた。
Tokyo Electric Power Co., operator of the embattled Fukushima No. 1
nuclear power plant, declared early this year (February), that it will not
repay radioactive cleanup costs in Fukushima Prefecture, forcing taxpayers
to shoulder the burden the Asahi Shimbun has learned.
Tepco Subcontractors got a good deal out of the decontamination work. 東電系企業が除染下請け 復興予算を食い物に
Tepco subcontractors got deals to do the decontamination making huge profits, only to be proven later, that it is not effective. Although Tepco doesn't pay what is required to do under the law, their subcontractors still get huge profits.
“The initial plan called for decontamination to be finished by the end of the current fiscal year........ The Environment Ministry plans to announce before
the end of the year a new schedule for the completion of the decontamination work.”
(Editor's note) The government admitted that decontamination work is not effective to reduce the amount of ionizing radiation in the atmosphere.
To avoid even more evacuation they had decided and announced that 20mSv/y is safe.
They still said 1mSv/y is a long term aim, but there is no other alternative plan announced to reduce the radiation apart from the in-effective decontamination work program.
Delaying tactics for Evacuees ...
Japan delaying 2-3 years to prepare the residents to return home near to the crippled nuclear plants 日本政府は除染が予定通りに終わらず、避難地区11市町村の帰還予定を2，3年、遅らす
What the Japanese Government Want is this...
The Japanese Government has announced in Fukushima "No More Repeating of Decontamination", "Giving up reducing to 0.23uSv/" 自己管理を提案 福島で政府説明会 再除染応ぜず
The officials have suggested to residents that it is ok to live there, even
if the level of radiation does not go down below 0.23uSv/h.
As long as they monitor their exposure levels by wearing a dosimeter and they manage to live carefully inside their houses so as not to be exposed to more than 0.23uSv/h.
What support has the Japanese Government give to evacuees?
The government said they are going to support the evacuees with a new
proposal. I am concerned because of this evidence of 50 mSv/y dose limit;
Those residents in the area with more than 50mSv/y will get sufficient
financial help from the government, but those in the remaining area will
not be going to get financial support.

How much they spend on those indivisual dosimeter?...
The Environment Ministry has requested 670 million yen ($6.7 million) in budget allocations for the next fiscal year for a program to distribute dosimeters to 4,200 residents from areas designated as "zones being prepared for the lifting of the evacuation order.” http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201311210067
