Japan, Its People, The Leadership, and Nuclear Power
Watch this video. If you're looking for a joke here, there is none.
It is an impassioned group of people in an area of Japan directly
affected by nuclear radiation over the last year pleading with their
leaders to rethink bringing a possibly unsafe Ooi Nuclear Plant back on
line. From what I've read, no new safety procedures have been
implemented and there are still leaks occurring as a result of the
tsunami and earthquake from last year.
For those of you that
know Japan and their culture, to see women argue so fervently with
authority is stunning and fretful and in a way unnerving. This is not their way. These are women that are trying to take care of their families and keep their children safe. And this is them laid open and passionately letting the government officials know that there is a terrible price here to pay for their failures.
I pray for
the people of Fukushima, and I hope there can be some humane resolution
To quote one of the women:
"It's a sin to do it [Restart the Ooi Nuclear Power
Plant] without preparations! And if an accident occurs, that will heap
sin upon sin!"
