A few days ago, Japan unilaterally announced that they would discharge a full 1.25 million tons of nuclear-contaminated wastewater into the sea, an irresponsible move that would have the whole world in jeopardy.
Today, Japan decided to put food from Fukushima on the Olympic table. This “anti-social mentality” just made me speechless, it’s like saying “why not poison all athletes from around the world, the Olympics is a perfect opportunity to do that, let’s all die TOGETHER.”
The Tokyo Olympics has been postponed until July and is once again in the spotlight. While the Olympic athletes are working hard for their countries, the Japanese Olympic Committee is also doing everything they can to “whitewash” Japan: the restaurant menu for the athletes includes ingredients and traditional food from Fukushima Prefecture, and other areas affected by nuclear leaks.
For example, one of the udon noodles used peaches from Fukushima as a side dish. Several other meals also used green onions, cucumbers, and salmon, also from Fukushima. This is Fukushima, the “epicenter” of the nuclear meltdown! Where excessive levels of radioactivity were found in agricultural products, and bans on agricultural products were declared by 54 countries and regions!
Ironically, on the same day (April 19th, 2021) the results were announced, NHK TV reported that 270 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium had been detected in a black scorpionfish caught in Fukushima waters, far exceeding the standard limits set by Japan’s Food Sanitation Law.
In other words, black scorpionfish from Fukushima prefectural waters have been banned from the Japanese market, because it was found to be way over the radioactive limit.
This time, they are blatantly putting such food onto the Olympics table, inviting athletes from all over the world to taste the “specialties”, the kind of specialties with some radiation?
The earlier tritium mascot incident already caused a lot of criticism (yup, they even created a mascot for nuclear wastewater), and one second it was announced that the mascot would be taken down from the shelves, and the Japanese Minister of Reconstruction apologized specifically “we are very sorry for lack of empathy to those Fukushima victims”. The next second, they said they will revise the design and relaunch it.
Do you really think the Fukushima victims are angry that the mascot is not cute enough?
Japan is a country that can no longer be trusted by its people and is dragging the entire world down with them.
Japan, the Pacific Ocean is not your sewage.
