High School Students in Tohoku to PM Noda: "We Want A Memorial Hall for the March 11, 2011 Disaster"

They also want safe environment for disaster volunteers. Do they mean decon volunteers?

The future is bleak.

From Nico Nico News quoting Jiji Tsushin (whose link disappears quickly) (2/19/2012):


Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda met with 8 high school students from 6 Tohoku Prefectures in the morning of February 19. The students delivered the message to the prime minister asking for the participation of high school students in the planning of the recovery from the March 11, 2011 disaster. The prime minister gave them word of encouragement by saying, "I feel heartened to know that the next generation of Tohoku is thinking about recovery passionately. The recovery will need the energy from the young generation."


The high school students requested the safe environment for the volunteers in times of disaster, and the construction of a memorial hall to memorialize the lessons learned from the March 11, 2011 disaster. To their request, the prime minister answered, "Do any of you have friends who cannot continue the study at school because of the disaster? I'm most worried about them. We are getting scholarships ready for such students."

NHK, reporting the same event, quotes one student from Iwaki City as follows:


"Fukushima produce is safe to eat, but is discriminated against because of the nuclear plant accident. I want this problem to be solved quickly."

I guess it hasn't occurred to this student there are things called radioactive materials all over them coming out of that plant. I don't know where he got the idea that for consumers to refuse buying the produce from Fukushima that may be contaminated with radioactive materials is discrimination.

I am so sad to hear that student parrot the government line about the "safety" of the food grown in the contaminated soil of Fukushima.
I hope his family does not suffer from the radiation. Time will tell if there is a danger for his family from eating, drinking and breathing in dangerous radioactive isotopes.

You know what? I think that governement and TEPCO officials should show leadership to these young kids and they should be eating exclusively Fukushima products to it. These poor kids clearly lack leaders.

These kids need no leaders. They need to think with their own brains if they have any left after mind-numbing education systems in Japan for almost 12 years. More if they went to kindergartens.

The more they talk like that, the nore there will be discrimination. The more I read such statements, the more I am resolved to never buy any good coming from that region...because its people are not trustworthy in the first place...maybe not their fault, they are like that out of desperation or out of brain washing. I prefer keep discriminating, as long as my brain allows me to do that.
