This video from Japan says about itself:
Fukushima farmers vs TEPCO and the government
4 September 2013
Translated by World Network for Saving Children from Radiation.
This is a very powerful video and heartbreaking! We wish for these brave farmers to be compensated for their lost.
The farmers don’t even want to eat their crops, do you think you should ?
Shame on you Japan, for abandoning these brave people and making them an accessory in putting consumers in danger.
“You keep saying harmful rumors … but it is not a rumor. If it is just a rumor, there would not be a basis for it … Our farmland has been seriously contaminated, in the thousands of Beqs … I measure it everyday on my land! It is THERE! So if you are saying these are “harmful rumors”, then take the contamination off my land!! You are not doing your job!”
“The environment hasn’t changed at all since the explosion.”
“I know there is radiation in what we grow. I feel guilty about growing it and selling them to consumers.”
“We won’t eat it ourselves, but we sell it”.
“Would you eat it yourself? I commend you for your willingness to sacrifice yourself (sarcasm)”
“but I bet you won’t allow your children to eat them (contaminated crops)”
“I can understand that you need to protect your job and your position, but you are crossing lines that should not be crossed”.
原発反対! 子どもを守ろう! 命を守ろう! みんなで守れ、子供を守れ、子供こそ宝だ・・・・。

Evacuate Fukushima 福島の子供を守れ
From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:
JAPAN: A former Fukushima worker is seeking ¥11 million (£64,000) in compensation from the operator of the nuclear plant for exposing him to high levels of radiation after the 2011 tsunami.
The worker was part of a team sent to lay electric cables in one of the reactors 13 days after the disaster.
He said in a 2012 interview that plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co should have known about the high radiation levels and warned them.
Fukushima’s cesium-137 levels ‘50% higher’ than previously estimated: here.
