Transcript Excerpt

Minamisoma city council member Koichi Oyama: I would like to explain something historical to better your understanding. Japan used to be ruled by a king, the emperor.


Parents and teacher tell children the best thing you can do was die for your country.

Kamikaze pilots in the war embodied this spirit.

In World War II they always told us we were winning every battle.

No one knew about Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The same thing is happening now. The current government not telling people what is happening is the same we have had since World War II.


Keep your country alive by killing yourself.

I think the way to save the children at Fukushima is to get the world involved. If we don’t protect our children now, it will be too late when we are the second Chernobyl.

Not allowing the children to escape is murder.
