Témoignage écrit des mères de Fukushima…Celles qui ne peuvent pas évacuer la zone dangereuse, mais qui voudraient pouvoir faire évacuer leurs enfants…lancent un S.O.S. ! Ecoutez ! Javale Gola 11 février 2013
Testimonies of the mothers in Fukushima filmed by the Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial Team. In the video, one of the mothers highlights the fact that regulatory standard for the food in the school meals at the primary schools in Koriyama City, Fukushima is 10 Bq/kg while the standard at the cafeteria of the offices of the Fukushima local government is 1 Bq/kg, suggesting that the government could sacrifice the health of children by lifting the safety standard higher than normal levels. In so doing, The government officials seem to believe that the promotion of the local consumption of food at the primary schools would make the impact of radioactive contamination in the community look smaller.
Also, the way in which this video presents the statements of the mothers by changing their voices and hiding their faces implies the mothers’ fears of being blamed by their neighbours or other members of their community when they speak out the truth in the public.
Fukushima Collective Evacuation Trial is a citizen’s collective lawsuit demanding the local government of Koriyama City, Fukushima to evacuate the children to the areas under 1mS/y of background radioactive dose. If the case of the children in Koriyama is approved by the court, other aurthorities of the high radiation areas will have to embrace this standard and ensure children the unconditional support for the evacuation.
