Fukushima Protester Jailed For 21 Days Speaks Out

Prof. Masaki Shimoji was Jailed for 21 days because he was speaking out against the way the Japanese government is handling the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster – burning debris, hiding test results, etc. He speaks out at a town hall in Berkeley, CA. “We are alarmed at the lack of testing currently in place to meet the present-and-growing threat of Cesium 134 and 137 contamination in our food supply. The time is past-due for a comprehensive response to radiation present in our food supply from the Fukushima disaster. ” Alexis Lynn Baden-Mayer, Political Director, Organic Consumers Association.
