No Health Care for Young Fukushima Victims

The one year remembrance day of the Tohoku earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima disaster is approaching, and many stories involving the government continue to disappoint.

Despite reports (rumors? since I can’t find any actual reports) of increasing levels of radiation in the Tokyo area, government is turning its back on health care for the youth. It’s a disturbing story for many reasons, but one in a long line of reactions of the past 11 months that makes me consider Reaction to Fukushima as a fourth disaster in Japan, that continues today.

I wonder where they find money for yet another Olympic bid for Tokyo? Such a thing isn’t necessary at this time, and I wish people wouldn’t support such projects.

Closer to home, Kyoto debates the presence of nuclear power plants nearby. Who knows if this is just a convenient thing to debate about for the mayoral election in a few days, or if people are actually concerned. From what I recall, the Fukui plant was shut down last year because it was deemed unsafe, but will start up again soon. TEPCO doesn’t own this one; a company called KEPCO does…so maybe its run completely different. I hope so, because if anything happens to this one, they’ll be no drinking water for a lot of people for a very long time.
