Alarming! Government censors news on Japan nuclear crisis

The Japanese Government has begun large scale censorship of all news (telephone, television/cable, and yes, the Internet!) in an attempt to avoid leaking out the true hazards of the ongoing nuclear crisis and the massive ill-effects of the nuclear radiations.

Fukushima Residents Seek Answers Amid Mixed Signals From Media, TEPCO and Government. Here’s a report straight from the Radiation Exclusion Zone, by Makiko Segawa of The Asia-Pacific Journal (Vol 9, Issue 16 No 2, April 18, 2011.)

“The Japanese government has moved to crack down on independent reportage and criticism of the government’s policies in the wake of the disaster by deciding what citizens may or may not talk about in public. A new project team has been created by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, the National Police Agency, and METI to combat “rumors” deemed harmful to Japanese security in the wake of the Fukushima disaster.

The government charges that the damage caused by earthquakes and by the nuclear accident are being magnified by irresponsible rumors, and the government must take action for the sake of the public good. The project team has begun to send “letters of request” to such organizations as telephone companies, internet providers, cable television stations, and others, demanding that they “take adequate measures based on the guidelines in response to illegal information. ” The measures include erasing any information from internet sites that the authorities deem harmful to public order and morality.”

For mored detailed reading on the background, read: JapanFocus.

Another good article: Japanese government censors Fukushima reports that contradict official story.

Additional information:

I read the letter of request myself, and I attest to the fact that it is true. There is also an addendum on this page, which links to PDF file that specifically asks the authorities to independently and autonomously delete all such news from the Internet which does not abide by the official news announced by the Japanese government.

The purpose of this site is bearing fruits! It is now increasingly visible that Japan has been willingly hiding facts about the crisis from the very beginning, and is now doing so openly! It’s time the international community cracks down on Japan and gets all the facts out!

Please help spread the word by sending the link to this page to all your friends!! You could save thousands who may die from radiation related causes if the government continues to hide the facts.


About Tokyo Nuclear Watchdog

I'm a foreigner living in Tokyo, Japan, and I have been impacted by the Japan Nuclear Crisis of March 11, 2011. Though the impact of the massive earthquake that was followed by an even more disastrous tsunami, which led to the nuclear crisis, was not as disastrous in Tokyo as it was around the Fukushima Nuclear Plants, there has not been sufficient data to prove that Tokyo is safe from nuclear radiation as is being portrayed by the authorities. This site aims at erring on the side of safety while it keeps a close watch on the crisis and how it affects those residing in and around the Tokyo (Kanto) region. Remember that the proper truth about radiation may only come out 5 or 10 years later when a classified file gets leaked out, but that will be too late for you to do anything about it if you were in Tokyo and had been through those radiation then (which as of this writing, is NOW). Do not believe the media. Trust your instincts, and make your own well-informed decisions about your safety. This site is here to help you, and your contributions are most welcome.
