Japan’s nuclear disaster political fallout

This video from Japan says about itself:

Fukushima, Japan – The Japanese government has issued the evacuation order on March 12 for the residents living within the 20 kilometer radius of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

Since then, residents have left their homes, and the “no man land” has been out of touch with the rest of the world.

A Japanese journalist, Tetsuo Jimbo, ventured through the evacuation zone last Sunday, and filed the following video report.

He says that, inside the evacuation zone, homes,building, roads and bridges, which were torn down by Tsunami, are left completely untouched, and the herd of cattle and pet dogs, left behind by the owners, wanders around the town while the radiation level remains far beyond legal limits.

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan faces a parliamentary no-confidence vote tomorrow as the country struggles to recover from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami and the subsequent Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear crisis: here.

    JAPAN: Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan survived a no-confidence motion in parliament today.

    The challenge from the opposition Liberal Democrat Party was defeated 293-152.

    Mr Kan has faced criticism for his handling of the fallout from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, and the crisis at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

    Despite winning the vote he hinted that he would step down once the crisis was resolved, saying: “Once the post-quake reconstruction efforts are settled, I will pass on my responsibility to younger generations.”
