Luckily in 2014 this type of censorship is silly, anyone can feel free to watch "On Your Mark" on Youtube

Finding more problems and never giving us any solutions or even ideas of how they are going to contain this. I wish Japan would just put away its pride and ask for help, because it is becoming more and more apparent everyday that they cannot fix this problem on their own.

I have a feeling that Spain is going to win this. But, please Japanese government, don't put money into anything before you fix the embarrassment that is Fukushima. I feel so bad for all those people still in temporary housing.

I love it when supermarkets and places in stations mark down their stuff in the evenings, so I can definitely understand why 7/11 owners would want to do the same thing, way to go! :)

People obviously aren't informed on radiation and this leads to fear. I kind of wish the government would teach everybody about radiation and it's effects and everything, but we just let the ignorant people be ignorant, and it's kind of not their fault.

Hunger strikes are a form of nonviolent protest and no these people aren't committing suicide and are definitely not going to die. Nonviolent protests are used to create buzz and get attention for your cause, which it seems like these people did.

I think the overall problem here is that the Japanese government and TEPCO are way too close. I remember Kan saying something about how they might have had to evacuate Tokyo and didn't know how they could move that many people. Considering the fact that the government hasn't given us solid numbers on the radiation levels in Fukushima, I highly doubt they are forming plans for the next, god forbid, worst case scenario. Instead TEPCO is more worried about their profits and the government will assist with their scare tactics, when the scariest thing is leaving these two in charge.

In the short term it may be rough, but in the long term it's better to put nuclear power on hold. With it's location on a fault it's just not worth it for Japan. The effects of the radiation from Fukushima won't be seen for years and the people affected will just end up being pushed aside and ignored by their government. The overall job of the government is to protect it's people and if they wanna do that, then they need to re-evaluate their energy options.
