5 more: the work has now been decided not to do debris removal flow of System Operation No. 3, dismantled equipment, dismantled unloading fuel in the SFP front of Unit 4 System Operation, Maintenance Tank maintenance of water treatment systems installed pollution, one maintenance of irrigation system maintenance in the furnace of Unit-4, I just installed or impervious wall.

Four following: Unit 3 reactor building is to put a high dose Dashimashi building ... even still. I have every single 決Menakya to analyze the data in the containment gas management system.行Kenakya not work well in the reactor building or underground. This means that I do not think I should also lead to the workers.

Three more: and say What do not determined why the next step is understanding the situation in the pressure vessel Toka containment do how to work them in the main those measures for waterproofing and know where I leak polluted water in irrigation in the furnace I think that I'm not embody.

2 more: I finished up the second step the government says, then the work of one of the reasons I think I also decided not to work more specifically decided not to include specific planning stage yet.

One more: I was also cut workers in the National Assembly yesterday, yes, and how do I not where Japanese and Chinese companies, I do not not reduce overall workers. The reason I think fewer workers but simply not there was shrunk to the budget.

  • A doctor from a Fukushima hospital speaking here last weekend said that many families are divided since one parent stays in the prefecture in order to work, while the other moves away with the children. He says that the divorce rate has been skyrocketing.

    • @bo I noticed something while digging on Chernobyl information last week. I think it just finally dawned on me, how rural areas seem to play into these accidents or disasters. The nature of nuclear installations or power plants causes them to need to be put away from population centers. It seems to then have the double issue of exploiting the local rural population. Then the typical issues of rural communities come into play. Income, social status, education of the population and the small total numbers of people that all play into them being bullied, manipulated or exploited. Someone protesting at METI mentioned how the rural nature of Fukushima adds to the income disparity and how it is another situation of those with wealth running over everyone else.
