Fukushima evacuees given more monetary aid, but hardly enough!

On Friday, July 20, 2012,  the Japanese government announced provisions for the residents inside the evacuation zone surrounding Fukushima Daiichi.

The most a family of four might receive is about $85,000 USD.  It's better than $10,000, but hardly enough to compensate for the homes and lives lost.  Roughly $6 billion for the 80,000 evacuees, whereas $45 billion for TEPCO.

A Simple Question for Japan's Leaders

The Huffington Post recently published my article about my recent trip into the 20km evacuation zone surrounding the failed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan.

A big thank you to all those who read, commented, and shared the link with others.  More awareness is needed on the plight of the 80,000 Japanese people who cannot return home.
