The first day of the earthquake, I was worrying about the people living in the region hit by Tsunami. Since the 2nd day, I’ve been crying realizing that the “safe” and “peaceful” country in which I’ve been living would no longer be existing, knowing that country once suffered from A-bombs is becoming the country letting people and all the living things of the earth exposed to the radiation. ..
The first 3 nights, I was sleepless worrying some bad things might happen while I was asleep.
About the day 4 forward, I hate to wake up for I know for sure the situations would be worse than the day before
At this critical moment of human history, it is another historical tragedy of us to have this ignorant, stupid and immoral government, media and incapable electric companies ruling this country.
Another electric company is still trying to construct new nuclear power plants. The government and media never tell us proper radiation data, they hide proper weather report with simulation of how the wind blows, they lack any proper standard of contamination of food and water, they do not monitor radiations of dangerous particles like plutonium or uranium. They leave residents living near the power plants uninformed without proper attention. How cold blooded and irresponsible to the vulnerable people.
They keep us telling “it does not cause health problem immediately”. It just mean you won’t die instantly. It sounds as if it is not a massacre if you kill thousands slowly.
Except regular news, TV do not broadcast what is happening at Fukushima nuclear power plants any more, it was until last week they were telling us lies like “contaminated vegetables are edible after washed with water and boiled”, “certain amount of radiation will be good for your health”. This week, even such lies are not on TV. TV programs are now quite as usual showing dramas, cinemas, talking about cosmetics, travels, arts, cuisines and sometimes about stories of Tsunami survivors and good people trying to help them.
It looks as if nothing is going wrong, getting better, there are no nuclear accidents expanding.
If we do not have twitter and face book, there are literally no media telling us the truth.Though we are all in danger of being victimized in one way or another, not many people are aware of the threat yet, or trying not to think of.
The atmosphere is like during the last war, 66 years ago.
People are deceived by own government, trying to believe what media say, trying to behave themselves, being mobilized to win the losing war expecting the Kamikaze to blow. Those who have objection and questions may soon be treated as betrayers or unpatriotic.
Today, Tokyo electric company started to through highly radioactive water directly to ocean. It's a crime, but again, the media and government made no critical comments.
It’s been like living night mere.
I feel terribly sorry for people of the world, and for the future generations and all the living things of the earth.
My hope is to survive together as many people as possible.
Since the earthquake, we made one film (a newsreel) already.
As a filmmaker, I will fight with my film to convey the truth and to make people awake. The truth is not sweet, but without the truth, we can not prepare for the future.
Many people are now moving into Hokkaido, the northern Island I live, from Fukushima and areas hit by Tsunami. (Together with my friends, I am also being a part of a group helping those people.)
Hokkaido is still a calm and peaceful place, and I am just hoping such peaceful days last as long as possible.
I am prepared to fight, but at the same time feeling like a refugee.
Am I going to live in Chernobyl?
Am I going to be a refugee ? (but to where?)
I miss Japan I used to live...
