Outrageous: Japan's LDP Government Lifts Evacuation Advisories

The Asahi Shimbun is reporting that Japan lifted evacuation advisories near Fukushima, whose nuclear cores cannot be located and which continues daily to contaminate the ocean, ground water, and atmosphere with highly radioactive contamination:
Honda, Masakazu (2015, April 1) Fukushima residents suing government for lifting evacuation advisories. The Asahi Shimbun,
MINAMI-SOMA, Fukushima Prefecture--Hundreds of residents here plan to sue the central government for lifting evacuation advisories near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, saying the decision endangered their lives because radiation levels remained high around their homes.

In the lawsuit that will be filed with the Tokyo District Court, the 535 plaintiffs from 132 households in the city just north of the nuclear plant will demand that the government retract its decision to lift the advisories and pay 100,000 yen ($837) in compensation to each plaintiff.

According to the plaintiffs, the government’s cancellation of the advisories goes against the Law on Special Measures Concerning Nuclear Emergency Preparedness, which states that its purpose is to “protect the lives, bodies and properties of citizens from a nuclear disaster.”

This decision to lift advisory boards is most definitely predicated upon a politics of DEATH, a form of THANATOPOLITICS, that should be universally opposed by those who chose LIFE over extinction of humanity.

See resources listed below for a more detailed account of why lifting the evacuation advisories constitutes a politics of death.
