(UPDATE: In her later post, she says she's receiving taunts and threats again in great numbers, with one of them purportedly from a man living in the same city telling her to leave because she is a disgrace to Minami Soma City. This is so World War II era.)
In her post on 1/5/2012, "Numayu" says her name is Emiko Numauchi, and that she has decided to do an interview with the independent journalist Yasumi Iwakami showing her face to the camera. And it looks she may be giving testimony in the Diet.
She has decided to speak out publicly, no matter what may be coming her way from the government or the detractors.
For her health conditions after the March 11 nuclear accident, see my post on January 2.
The photo is from her Facebook page, when she was still healthy, in the summer of 2011.
From her blog entry on 1/5/2011:
Just now, I spoke with the "true journalist", named Iwakami, on the phone. I realized how "stupid" I had been.
No more "polite" form of speech. I will write in the "regular" speech. Use a search engine [she recommends Yahoo!] for "Emiko Numauchi 沼内 恵美子", and that is me.
It's been six years when I published a novel about "the truth in the battle of Okinawa".
I was overwhelmed by Iwakami's enthusiasm. It seems there are already many cases of mysterious illnesses in Fukushima Prefecture. I am a "living witness", and only a herald to what is to come.
Already, a cat with only one eye has been born.
No matter what the Japanese government may do, no matter what kind of slander it may throw against me, it is important to keep spreading the information. That's what I've learned from the journalist Iwakami.
As the human "life" and "dignity" gets hidden, I hear that malformed babies are born already. The situation in Fukushima Prefecture is getting more dire, with control of speech [or media blackout] as a matter of fact. Without the phone call from Iwakami, I would have simply stopped blogging even though I remain angry.
I made an appointment [with Iwakami] for an interview, with my face shown on camera. I will not speak in an elaborate or circumspect way any more. It will be to the benefit of all Japanese citizens if he shows me as I am.
All the members of the Diet should be replaced. Not the snap election but "replacing the members" is indispensable.
We don't need a cabinet and members of the Diet that are rotten and stink.
In the Diet, I want to tell them how it really is, as a witness. I want to show them the "true soul" of the Japanese people.
Ms. Numauchi has two books published, searching in Amazon.co.jp.
